Uses & Applications

Use to Fill and Seal:

  • Through-penetrations for plumbing, electrical and HVAC services
  • Gaps and cracks in foundations, crawlspaces, attics, and basements
  • Partitions and stud walls
  • Top and bottom of stair stringer
  • Space connections in soffits and drop ceilings
  • Any penetrations that requires an approved fire blocking sealant
Made in the U.S.

Application Instructions

Preparation: To promote adhesion, surface must be clean, dry, and free of all foreign material. For easy attachment to foam applicator gun, apply petroleum jelly to the gun basket before screwing on can. While pointing in a safe direction, depress trigger and attach gun to can (see instructions inside gun box).

Application: For best results this product should only be dispensed in the UPSIDE-DOWN position and apply in spaces with 40% greater relative humidity. Fill gap no more than 1/4 full, allowing room for expansion. Foam will be tack-free in about 10 minutes (50% RH).

Can Replacement: While pointing the gun in a safe direction, depress trigger and quickly remove empty can. Spray basket with polyurethane foam cleaner and immediately replace with a new can of foam to prevent foam from hardening in the gun.

Clean-up: If wet foam contacts skin, clean immediately with a dry rag – do not use water – water accelerates curing. Cured foam must be removed mechanically from surfaces. Uncured foam can be cleaned from most surfaces with Foam Cleaner or acetone.

Storage/Re-Use: Turn gun’s flow control knob to closed position and store can in upright position (with gun still attached). To restart, shake well for 30 seconds, turn flow control knob to open position and dispense foam.

Question & Answers

User Reviews

DAP Touch 'n Foam All Purpose Professional Insulating Polyurethane Foam Sealant
Made in the USA
hot melt rubber (synthetic)
Offers the widest range of application flexibility available. Exhibits excellent processing performance whether manually or automatically applied. Has superior tensile strength, adhesion properties and holding force which ensures consistent, reliable seals. Hot melt adhesive will bond faster to a surface which is referred to as quick-grab or quick-stick. It typically has higher tack (will feel stickier to the touch), but is also softer. It has lower heat resistance, shear resistance, and sometimes UV resistance than an acrylic adhesive. NOTE: it is called hot melt because the adhesive is applied hot by the manufacturer and then hardens as it cools (you do not need to apply heat to the tape yourself).
natural rubber
Properties are similar to that of hot melt rubber, but natural rubber often holds where other adhesives won't (recycled fibers, dust, cold, heat and heavy loads). It provides good overall adhesion and moisture resistance.
acrylic
Offer excellent performance, especially for applications in temperatures less than 40°F and greater then 120°F. It provides excellent clarity, has high shear strength, is usually more permanent/durable even when exposed to moisture, and it ages well over extended periods in fluorescent and sunlight. Since it remains clear for the life of the application and does not yellow over time it is ideal for applications such as sealing white cartons. While it has good initial adhesion it does take 24-48 hours to cure and to achieve its maximum bond strength (has gradual adhesion buildup). Another difference between hot melt rubber and acrylic adhesive is if you fold tape over making the two adhesive sides touch the acrylic adhesive will remain attached to the carrier (e.g. paper, film) while a hot melt adhesive will stick to itself and pull off of the carrier. It is the best choice for clarity, UV resistance and aging characteristics.
silicone
Is great for extreme temperature applications since silicone adhesive can work in continuous operating temperatures from -100°F to 500°F. They also exhibit good chemical resistance, retain electrical properties, and remove cleanly with little or no residue.
zinc oxide
Zinc oxide based adhesive formula is a skin-friendly adhesive which is commonly used on sports medicine tapes.
Thickness, AKA caliper or gauge, refers to the distance from one surface of a tape backing, or adhesive, to the other.
1 mil = 1/1000 of an inch
Examples: 1/16 inch = 62.5 mils; 1/32 inch = 31.25 mils
