Using Expanding Foam to Stick to Shelf?

Postby Guru86 » Mon Oct 01, 2018 4:31 pm

Good afternoon

I have cut and fitted some oak boards (Thanks for help in previous post). However the shelves I am putting them wasn't level so have had to use packers to level it out but this has left a large gap. I am thinking of just using expanding foam with weights on top to stick the wood to the shelf. Is there any issues with this? Will the expanding foam bond the two together?

Thanks in advance

While expanding foam will stick to surfaces it isn't a glue and isn't designed for holding things together. So the short answer is no.

Your question and use is unclear a picture will help and give a chance for a better answer.
