Every time I buy a can, it's un-usable after the first use. Is there a proper storage procedure/trick or do people try to use up the can before it sets?

find as many projects or things that need this, get a can, and get going. this doesn't sit well after being used the first time, so it's best to do as many things as possible at once

You tell me if you ever find a trick. Never got it working a second time xD

Just want to add that on the back of the can it says in bold letters one time use should be expected and also cold temperatures adversely affect performance.

No, that's a job for an epoxy caulk. This stuff is insulating foam.

Like others have said, expect only 1 use out of a can and it expires. That old can likely won't work at all, and any you left over to use in the future is also gonzo.

I gave up on these cans (don't ask me how long/how many useless cans it took me to smarten up...I'd be banned from RFD) and bought the gun that uses the screw on cans. The gun only makes sense if you have a lot of use over a long time, which is me.
Though it is a lot nicer to use; way less mess, so much easier to use.

Next time I buy a can of this I'm gonna figure out something creative to do with whatever is left in the can

Any suggestions?

What kind of product is that?
You have a link?

It’s probably a better idea to price match at Home Depot, assuming they price match PA, to ensure you get a good date on the can.

EDIT: I should have checked closer. I see now PA sells a smaller than usual can so no PM opportunity. Now I can’t decide if I go to PA today and take my chances or just assume it’s old stuff. I’ve attempted to use a 1 year expired can before and can confirm it did not work.

Buy a foam gun on Amazon that takes the screw on cans, if you will have small jobs spread over a long time its great. I was able to reuse my can like 7 times over 4 months and the gun lets you make perfectly sized foam lines without getting drips everywhere.

It should have been the first thing I bought when I got my house.

Is this good for gaps between garage door and frame? Will the cold impact it negatively?
