Every idea starts with a problem. Ours was simple: polyurethane spray foam equipment was expensive and complicated, especially if you want to do smaller projects in existing buildings. This idea really hit home as we were just starting up Ag-tite ( www.Ag-tite.com ) back in 2005. Since we were both the contractor and at the same time developing the spray technology to help farmers, we were asking ourselves "Why is this so hard? All we want to do is to spray and foam ". We could not find portable spray foam technologies that would help us do our job better.
Air leaks in buildings causes drafts, and drafts cost you money. The Spray Sealants Guns lets you spray a coat of foam insulation over cracks and holes in your building, creating an air barrier, to help keep the temperature of your building from varying so much. The proper use of an air barrier to stop an air leak has proven to significantly reduce heating and cooling costs, improve building durability and create a healthier indoor environment.
It has been our passion Sealant Technologies, Inc. to create small, portable spray foam machine that is easy to use and that can integrate existing two component polyurethane chemicals so that your projects are affordable to offer to your customers. If you think about how simple and easy the iPhone is to operate and how that electronic device makes your life more productive, we believe that the Spray Foam Hybrid can also be a spray tool that could be added to your business to make it more valuable.
It turns out there was a simple explanation. The spray foam insulation industry is dominated by spray equipment and chemicals that are all focused primarily on the new residential housing market and the commercial roofing business. There is no real interest in creating small, portable spray sealant platforms. The machines that are out in the market today are built using 20+ year old technology. Also, because the spray equipment and the chemicals are not integrated, it causes a lot of confusion for the company that is looking for a simple spray foam platform, especially if it is just a small project.
