Q.Can Great Stuff™ products be used outdoors?
Yes. Great Stuff™ and Great Stuff Pro™ products can be used outdoors. However, cured foam will discolor if exposed to ultraviolet (UV) light. If left exposed, the foam will eventually crumble. Paint or coat foam for best results in outdoor applications. Great Stuff Pro™ Gasket is not approved for used outdoors
Q.Can I store a Great Stuff™ product if I don't use the whole can?
Great Stuff™ cans featuring the newly launched Smart Dispenser™ may be reused up to 30 days with the straw left attached to the canister. Just clean the tip after your first use, leave straw attached, and reuse for up to 30 days.
Great Stuff™ foam with the straw tube applicator will seal shut if left to sit for more than 2 hours after its last use. However, if you leave the straw assembly attached to the can and insert a pipe cleaner (soaked in WD40) into the straw, this may allow the can to be re-used up to 30 days.
Great Stuff Pro™ can that has been attached to the Great Stuff Pro™ Foam Dispensing Gun can also be left and reused within 30 days.
Q.How do I get Great Stuff™ foam off of my skin?
If the foam has not cured or hardened, use fingernail polish remover (with acetone); a polyglycol-based skin cleanser or corn oil may be effective. Then wash with soap and plenty of water. If the foam has hardened, there is no solvent that will remove it. It will not harm your skin and will wear off over time. To remove cured foam from skin, use a pumice stone (available at most drug stores) and warm, soapy water. Then apply petroleum jelly.
