Touch ‘n Foam Professional products allow you to use less energy which helps reduce air pollution and global warming associated with energy production. When properly used, Touch ‘n Foam Professional products control internal building temperatures, reduce moisture flow and result in reduced energy costs overall.
Most homes have inadequate insulation, and all those wires, pipes and ducts running through the walls let cold air in, and warm air out. With a 400% increase in energy costs over the past decade, it only makes sense to seal those gaps. Touch ‘n Foam Professional insulating sealants offer an ideal solution for reducing the monthly sticker shock.

We love our environment, but we would rather the pests and rodents stay outside. DAP Foam and Touch n Foam Pro have no ingredients that appeal to insects or animals, so they generally won’t attempt to chew through the foam. This creates an excellent barrier for keeping pests outside.
Not all foams can claim what Fire Break Foam can – a federal rating as a Class A residential fireblocking foam. A fireblocking foam slows the spread of flames from one area to another by blocking the flow of oxygen. The gaps around your pipes, electrical wires and outlets give oxygen a free pass from one room to another. Fire needs oxygen to spread, so when you use Fire Break to stop the flow of oxygen, you buy valuable time to get to safety during a fire.
Moisture breeds mold. When you have gaps and cracks around your house, humidity levels remain high. This is what causes condensation and sometimes even frost to develop on your windows. Warm, moist air rises and the moisture permeates your ceilings and attic. This can cause mold growth that you may never see, but will ultimately cause wood rot and home damage, and possibly even health issues for allergy-sensitive family members.
Your home is probably insulated with fiberglass, but it is not air sealed. There are dozens of small gaps, cracks and holes around your electrical outlets, plumbing and electric lines. In fact, there are so many holes that when added together, they equal the size of an open door that allows the outside air to come right in. Using Touch n Foam to insulate these gaps can drive down your energy costs by as much as thirty percent, and give your heater/air conditioner the break it deserves.
