    Hi, There are some gaps between Kingspan and timber wall studs where my sawing wasn't too straight. Is ordinary silicone or Gripfill OK to use to fill these gaps?. Is there anything I shouldn't use?

    Nearly all the builders I work with use expanding foam to fill the gaps.

    Anything you are likely to use will be fine.

    You are extremely unlikely to start pumping in solvents that will disolve the foam and you would immediately see the results if you did.
