    Hi I am looking to get some injectable foam insulation for a flat roof celling that has some spaces in the existing insulation. I am aware that you can buy big kits that you might use to fill up large spaces like a wall or something. However I just need a small amount for some gaps in the insulation not a huge kit.

    My question is this can you buy smaller amounts of injectable foam insulation like in a tin or something?

    I don't think no more gaps filler is suitable is it. Any suggestions please?

    No it wont.
    Only thing you need to be aware of is any electrical connections, downlights etc.
