spray foam insulating material

Where can I get the foam spray insulating material that is used to insulate hot tubs? I used the stuff you can get at the local Menards, etc. It doesnt seem to work very well, as it is too "liquedy" when first sprayed, and never stays where I wasnt it. It always drips off, and defeats the purpose. Is there a better product? What do others use?

I think the foam you are looking for is sprayed from a gun and both the gun and chemicals are expensive. Most all foams are liquid at first then the chemical reaction kicks in and they "puff up" and get firmer. Keep playing with the stuff from a can. Hold the tip very close and try to get it to stick.

Some boat stores have the mix to make the foam . But like said you need a form for it. Try and hold a piece of cardboard up there and spray under or behind it. The can stuff from Homedepot and Lowes should work.
