Grip Strip Trapezoidal Backer Rod is chemically inert, closed-cell polyethylene foam backer that is trapezoidal shaped (4 sided) to fit between log courses and form a flat surface for the application of Perma-Chink or Energy Seal caulk. Grip Strip Backer Rod makes it easier to maintain a consistent thickness of sealant across the seam, reducing the amount of sealant required and improving the sealant’s performance. Grip Strip’s unique design provides an excellent fit and surface within the chink joint so there is no need for staples, nails or glue.
Uses: Provides a uniform flat surface for the installation of Perma-Chink, Log Jam and other commonly available synthetic chinking products.
