The FILL-RITE Pre-Caulking Filler Rope Backer Rod Roll is made of closed-cell, resilient polyethylene. It's used as a backup material for construction joints and applications that require sealants. It performs as a depth control for most known cold applied sealants. Sealants will not adhere to it; no bond breaker is required.
