" When using only part can fold the tube back and secure with a strong clip or tape. To clean the tube WD 40 does the job. "

Check shelf life
30 May 2014
By AVdB
, Midlands
" All the reviews of this product that do not have positive feedback are most probably linked to expired shelf life.
Check the expiry date at the bottom of the can. If in date, you will not be disappointed.
If past expiry date, there is less gas in the can, the valve can start playing up and the foam becomes more viscous and expands less.

excellent
24 Jan 2013

" Once you get the hang of using this foam it's excellent.
My only criticism is the lack of any instructions for cleaning the applicator tube. I used the foam on a large gap so had to do it in stages and had to work faster than I wanted to or the tube would have blocked.

" I bought this to fill large gaps around my windows (left by a double glazing installer - need I say more!). It was easy to use and did exactly what it was meant to do. As the instructions say, avoid filling large gaps in one go, instead layer it with letting one layer go off before doing a second layer. In the smaller gaps, it expanding nicely and fully sealed the window frame to the masonry.
I also used it to fill the gaps where my gas pipe enters the house (what is it with tradesmen who leave these massive gaps??). This had been letting water in but not now...filled tightly with foam and rock
solid.
I would certainly buy this product again and would recommend it to anyone. "

Quality Product

" Although this is branded as No-nonsense, if you look at the COSHH sheet its actually made by Soudal and has the same COSHH certification number as the Soudal branded cans costing twice as much. Great stuff though, once you get the hang of using it. General rule of thumb - spray in only half as much as you think you'll need !!! "

" I had five cans of this product purchased last year. I came to use them this week and all of the cans leaked foam from the joint between the rubber nozzle and the can top. The foam is ok but no foam can be coaxed out of the nozzle.
I was going to complain but then noticed an Expiry Date on the bottom of each can. The date was March 2012 so there was no point in returning them.
I have never considered expiry dates on expanded foam before and I have other brands much older than these that still work. "

" Expands, sticks, fine! Does need to be at room temp though, so warm up (gently) before deploying on a cold site - (optimal is 20C but works between 5-25C). "

" Compared to price all other foams (around £10) this one is a best buy. It is not as strong as most foams but still does all insulation jobs perfectly.
Expands the same way (or even better) as other products on the market.
Nozzle is bit annoying as it let the foam too easily, but can't complain really.

EXPANDING FOAM

By Anonymous
, LINCOLNSHIRE.
" Beware,this item is not good for all applications.I needed to use it in a vertical position under the front of my bath and this position just lets the pressurizing gas escape and not the actuall foam that I needed.This can needs one to use in an upside down position hence no good for me.Overall though a good product.

" Its the least expensive foam around. Make sure the cans are warm and well shaken before use, invert the can (as it says), make sure you have a fresh batch - out of date cans are useless - plan to use the cans in one go, it doesn't store well. Its OK, but doesn't go very far. "

" I found this product hard work to use.When can is first used cold or cool foam output is erratic at best.Stuck the can on top of warm cylinder for 30 mins and worked a treat.Tried to read the usage instructions on side of can but print so small unable to see it! So in summary use in the summer or put in a warm bath of water! apart from that, a good price for the can size. "
