Backer Rod is an extruded, round, closed cell polyethylene foam designed to effectively fill the gaps between logs prior to the application of log caulking. Backer Rod is flexible and compressible; it conforms to the irregularities in the log surface.
Backer Rod (round) is extruded, closed-cell polyethylene rod /rope that is used in cracks, checks and gaps before filling them with sealants such as, Energy Seal caulk, Check Mate 2 or Perma-Chink. Backer Rod provides a firm yet flexible surface on which to apply sealants. The sealant will adhere to the log above and the log below but float over the Backer Rod which is a natural releasing agent. The Backer Rod allows the sealant to expand and contract as the log moves due to natural settling and weather changes.
Uses: Caulk joints should be no 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 / cracks over 1/4” wide before applying Check Mate 2.
