This two-part, latex-based foam seals cracks and penetrations through a building envelope, and from floor to floor. Approved for use as a fireblock, and around plumbing penetrations and electrical wireways, it’s the only self-forming gasket system offering energy code compliance. By keeping airborne moisture from entering wall cavities, EnergyComplete also reduces the chance of mold growth, and creates a first line of defense against insects and other pests. This sealant is non-allergenic, and safe to use without a chemical mask or ventilation suit.
