Backer Rod Closed-Cell is a resilient, polyethylene backer rod 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.

Backer Rod is a round, black, resilient, extruded closed-cell polyethylene backer rod with a water-resistant outer skin. It is compatible with most known cold-applied sealants such as urethane, silicone, acrylic, butyl, polysulfides, latex, and chinking sealants.
