Black Expendable Foam

Been looking to buy a can of black expanding foam but unable to locate any with the local rv dealers or landscaping contractors. On line looks like by the case only. Anyone have any ideas??? I have a need to reseal couple of areas where wires enter the coach.

Thank you

How about the available everywhere beige "Great Stuff" foam and a can of black spray paint (non-lacquer)?
You could even go with a fire retardant foam.

Home Depot has insulation foam that seems to be what you are looking for. It is not black.

I don't know where you are located but the black expanding foam is typically for pond and waterfall construction. Check your local yellow pages for a pond or aquascape construction company. They might even give you a can.

Fire proof foam would be better...but then again these rigs are matchsticks anyway. If the foam is in an area that could get near 200F, I would opt for the fire proof stuff if you could find it.

The Handi-Foam listed above on the Grainger link is what most RV companies use except theirs are in large (expensive) containers and use a pneumatic gun to apply. The small can looks pretty good to me.
