Closed-cell spray foam is the most expensive residential insulation. When installed well, however, it performs better than any other insulation. It is an excellent air barrier, is impervious to moisture, and is an effective vapor retarder. Because of its density and gluelike tenacity, it also adds structural strength to a wall, ceiling, or roof assembly. To seal air leaks in retrofit applications as well as new construction—for example, at rim joists or the attic side of partition top plates—closed-cell spray foam is an extremely useful material.
The Spray Foam Hybrid processes high pressure formulations with a low pressure system. This exciting new spray technology has many new advantages that could potentially reshape the way we apply SPF in the future. One of the largest benefits to the Spray Foam Hybrid is that due to the low-pressure processing, we are able to apply the SPF through plastic dispensers, which provides many benefits to the business owner and the production installers. At a price of less than $100, this reusable dispenser provides spray foam business owners with an economical solution for processing SPF chemistry. Most spray foam contractors would agree that their biggest set backs are finding skilled personnel. Training for new and current spray foam installers on equipment is a very lengthy and can be a difficult process. High pressure machinery requires knowledge of all equipment. The normal high pressure spray gun can have as many as 50 parts. When the spray foam gun fails, the installer much be able to determine the case as well as what parts failed which can cause delayed times in production, which means loss in profit. With the Spray Foam Hybrid, installers will enjoy the east of us of the gun, including weight, flexibility and overall performance. Extensive mechanical experience for repairs is not required as the gun is considered a wear part and is simply replaced when needed. Downtime is eliminated as the change out of a new gun is as little as five minutes or less. The Spray Foam Hybrid saves time, lowers material and transportation costs and eliminates drum disposals.
