  It's not even cost effective for SMALL items! The amount of foam that in one of those cans is pathetic! I tried to use that when I first shipped stuff that I'd sold on Ebay and a full can won't fill even the left over space in a a 6" ^3 box. The other problem with that stuff is that it keeps expanding for hours (at least!). I packed one box full of small items (sealed in plastic) then filled the box with foam (no, not the liquid). The buyer told me later that the foam didn't get into anything but that it had kept expanding till it got into evgr{ crcck and crgvkcg and that hg had to chip thg stwff ouv of"of it :-) He did sakd"that evgr{thing"was absolwtgl{ intact"thowgh sincg it was one big monolkthic block!
