Foam Cans and DIY Kits come in many different shapes and sizes to accomodate both the professional and the Do-It-Yourselfer. From Single-Component to Plural-Component. From aerosol type cans to pressurized bottles.
Other than smaller home type air sealing and weatherization projects, spray foam applications should only be performed by trained professionals that understand the chemicals involved, proper application techniques, and most importantly, the correct saftey practices and personal protective equipment (PPE) that is required. SprayFoam.com warns both the trade professionals and the do-it-yourselfer, that there can be many hazards involved with the application of polyurethane foam if not done properly. See our spray foam safety section for more details and download capable safety documents.
Spray Foam is also available in small single component cans for the homeowner and contractor to insulate and seal cracks, gaps, windows, outlets, floors, doors and more...
Sealing between the floors and bottom plating will help to prevent air and moisture infiltration and exfiltration through the cracks in the building structure.
Most every spray foam insulation contractor uses this type of equipment in one form or another to supplement their application service and collection of tools and equipment.
Home owners and facility managers can also use these products to seal cracks and insulate their buildings and homes.
