Apparently this remains somewhat flexible ... manufacturer says it can be stuffed back into an opening if it overflows. The Lowes near me has 300 cans in stock ... Home Depot near me has none.

great, it does say remains flexible... why it says "this product should not to be used for filling closed cavities or voids"? what problem could it cause?

I assume it is the "expands as it cures" part and the "closed" word. ... it will apply force from the inside.

My pleasure! .... it also looks like they make a black expanding sealer for automotive use ... might be good for places like wheelwells ... don't know whether it remains flexible. Let us know how your project works out.

great stuff is a closed cell stryofoam type product, Yes it will expand 20x it's initial volume. A little bit will go a long way, and can be easily trimmed after cured with a razor blade. You really want closed cell foams otherwise they will hold water.

Hi I'm new at this

I bought some grey foam sealer that is generally used for sealing ponds at menards in rapid city SD. I was told that it is the same foam that was used in my front engine compartment to seal the air gaps. It dries to a semi soft form and is water proof. It comes in a spray can and cost around eight dollars.

Great Stuff

I have used a product in window installation made by DAP which comes in a compressed can. It fills gaps and cracks and does expand but not like Great Stuff. It can waterproof and air proof if installed properly. Check it out. I think that it can solve your problem. Hope this helps.
