Responsibly Expanding Foam Insulation - On the House

Responsibly Expanding Foam Insulation

By on March 3, 2014

In 1948, President Harry S. Truman signed the military draft into effect, and ever since, reluctant youths have tried to avoid it. Homeowners try to avoid the draft, too, with a variety of spray-can foam sealants intended to seal cracks and fill open spaces.

But those who use spray-can foam insulation sometimes underestimate its expansion power, and find it bends, bows, and even causes damage when too much foam is sprayed into a confined space. This was especially an ongoing problem when used with new windows and doors, as traditional foams often bent or bowed frames when used to weather-seal both new and retro-fit installations.

However, a new formulation by Dow Chemical solves this problem with a low-pressure foam sealant made specifically for windows and doors that gently expands to fill openings and remains soft and flexible after curing. New Great Stuff provides energy-efficiency by expanding responsibly! No more pushing the button and watching frames bow.
