*** It IS POSSIBLE to SAVE a partial can for later use as I show in the video. ***

This really is "great stuff". With some necessary precautions, a little practice and some patience; so long as you use it for the intended applications, it will serve you well. No leaks from the applicator tip and nothing broke off as some have experienced. Perhaps that was just a temporary issue that has now been resolved.

Notes:
--> Clean up with ACETONE ONLY. No other "household solvents" will work.
--> "Minimal expanding" is very qualitative. I'd estimate it expands to roughly 2-3 times the size of whatever you first squeeze out of the straw.
--> As another reviewer said, it is very possible to control how much comes out of the tube with a little practic. Otherwise, it's very easy to accidently get too much going. Cleaning up a product that expands is much messier than any other spill.
--> This product is meant as an AIR insulator. It is not meant to keep out water. It is not meant to be exposed to rain and sun directly. Use silicone sealants to keep out water.
--> The surface cures with a solid skin. If you cut or sand it, you'll see tiny air pockets from the expansion process.

Rcommendations:
--> Wear disposable gloves. This stuff is VERY sticky.
--> Use masking tape on unwanted surfaces. This stuff is VERY sticky.
--> Wear safety glasses. I've had bits just shoot out of the straw as if the can vented only air.
--> Clean up with acetone before it hardens.
--> Since it's so messy, you won't want to shake it after you start using it. Shake well before starting.
--> Squeeze out a small bead at a time. Wait to see how much it expands before adding more. When it stops coming out of the straw, then whatever you squeezed out earlier has also stopped expanding.

It works as expected, and does not expand once it's out of the tube. I used it to fill large gaps in old wooded lap siding on my detached garage.

Key points:
1 This is a one time use product! It is not reddi-whip, you can't put the cap back on and use it again week later.
2 Shake it for a minute before you put the straw dispenser on.
3 PRACTICE! Set up some paper towels or something beforehand so you can figure out how soft to squeeze it before going to your actual application site. It is very easy to squeeze too hard and have to rush out and make a mess, but with practice its possible to get it in a nice controlled line. BUT YOU HAVE TO PRACTICE OR ELSE IT WILL DISAPOINT YOU IF YOU DON'T KNOW WHAT TO EXPECT!
4 The foam will continue to trickle out after you stop pushing the dispenser. This is just the foam continuing to expand slightly in the application tube. It will stop quickly, but can be surprising if you are not expecting it.
5 Cary some disposable towels in your own hand to clean the applicator after lifting away from the application site. Otherwise it will get messy.
6 it will get hard quickly, so make sure you clean anything up within the first hour.

It says all this on the can, but it might be hard to take everything in if you're not expecting it.
Good luck!

Regardless of what anyone out there says.....this is a great product and it does its job. Of course the downside is that you have to use the entire can at once since the spray nozzle will seal shut after use of the can. This is a minor flaw since they only cost $4 a can.

The insulating foam expands much larger than the bead that you run, so make sure to use less than you think you need!! It hardens into a thick plastic-like foam that will seal air flow and voids in the walls perfectly. I ran a bead all the way across my basement wall after I was getting a TON of bugs into my basement. After putting the spray foam all the way down the wall....no more bugs in the basement!! It is a great product that does it's job.

There is not much foam in each bottle but at just $4, you cannot beat the price for the job that it does. I will be buying several more for sealing other places to enhance energy efficiency in my home.

****UPDATE: One issue I discovered with this product is that it does not hold up well, when exposed to rain/water!! Used the expanding foam on exterior surfaces of my house for sealing purposes and the stuff did not last long at all to the elements. After being exposed to rain repeatedly, the foam loses its ability to stay in place and broke into several pieces. Strongly recommend that you use this product for interior projects only!!!!

We have used great stuff for years and it has never let us down. Yes, there is a learning curve and maybe a can bought for practice would be wise but it's worth it's weight in gold as far as we are concerned.
We have used it for everything from patching holes in hollow doors, crack sealant, outside on our little waterfall/pond project and on and on, the possibilities are endless with this stuff and we make sure we always have a can of it on hand.
The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars is because yes, you DO have to use the entire can in one setting but as far as I'm concerned, it's worth the trade-off.
I hope they NEVER stop making this product!
