GREAT STUFF™ Now Has Application-Specific Window and Door Insulation


Marietta, Ga. (August 12, 2001) – The Dow Chemical Company's Polyurethane Systems Business, makers of the leading polyurethane foam sealant, GREAT STUFF, has introduced GREAT STUFF Window and Door Foam Sealant, designed exclusively for filling the rough opening gap around windows and doors without distorting the frame.

Window and Door, part of the new line of application-specific GREAT STUFF products, is the first sealant available to remodeling contractors and do-it-yourselfers that is proven not to buckle or bow window or doorframes. Its patent pending, low-pressure formula ensures all installed millwork products will operate smoothly and well within their manufacturers' specifications once the foam is applied. Window and Door also replaces the painstaking job of stuffing gaps with fiberglass chinking or polyethylene foam rods with a quick and easy application that stops drafts and saves homeowners energy dollars by forming a permanent, air tight, and water resistant bond to vinyl, wood, and metal surfaces.

Suggested retail price for a 12 oz. can of GREAT STUFF Window and Door is less than $6. It is available at most home centers, hardware stores and discount retailers.
