SPECIFIC USES INCLUDE

Pavement joints and repairs
Window and door applications
Precast concrete coping
Log home chinking
Closed-Cell Foam Backer Rod should be installed with a roller or blunt, flat-sided tool. Please follow sealant manufacturer specifications for recommended sealant width and depth ratio. For best results, do not puncture, fold or overly stretch the product. The product is made with a water-resistant outer skin, therefore where moisture resistance is important, care should be taken not to puncture this outer surface skin.
