Backer Rod

five star

Closed-Cell Foam Rope

Backer Rod is extruded closed-cell polyethylene rod that is used in cracks, checks and gaps before filling them with sealants such as Perma-Chink, Energy Seal and Check Mate 2. Caulk joints should not be more than 3/8” thick and Backer Rod provides a way to fill a deep crevice or gap while maintaining the proper sealant thickness for maximum performance. Backer Rod should also be used in checks over 1/4” wide before applying Check Mate 2.

  • Closed cell polyethylene
  • Will not absorb water
  • Heat and cold stable.
  • Should be used to assure proper thickness of sealants including Perma-Chink, Energy Seal and Check Mate 2

Project Spotlight

  • A simple comparison of the cost of a gallon of wood stain is a mistake because all stains differ in their lifespan, coverage rate and quality of appearance and protection

    Whether you’re currently building your dream log home or simply checking off tasks on your annual home-maintenance “to do” list, we’re always looking for ways to skimp on expenses around the house.
