Sealing Duct work

I saw on ATOL a guy doing an energy audit where he found leaks in the duct work and sealed it with mastic. Do you know where or who carries/sells mastic that I can us to seal my duct work with? I can't find the product in any store and the clerks think I'm nuts.

Big box stores in our area have "tape" that is used to seal ductwork. It is not duct tape. The type I have used is foil backed.

the problem is not everyone who works at the stores knows the proper names for certain products. just ask for duct sealent that you brush on.

Referred to by commercial, professional tin bangers across the nation as “Pooky”. :D ............. Really.

You might try a commercial duct supply place if you do not want to buy on-line.

Or you can silicone caulk as well.
