How to choose the right foam for your portable spray foam equipment
When determining which type of polyurethane spray foam insulation to install, careful consideration should be placed on which type of cell is appropriate for the application. SprayWorks portable spray foam equipment is designed to accommodate both open cell and closed cell foam insulation.
June is National Safety Month and as we are wrapping up the month, there are some key areas workers should be vigilant of while working in the heat – especially moving into some of the hotter months.
- Wear properly ventilated suits: Many contractors don’t know that when it comes to protective wear, they have options. Some suits are designed for working better in the heat. While it can be tempting to remove it, it’s important to keep protective equipment on. Not only is it required by OSHA, but protective wear keeps you from inhaling fumes and being exposed to splashing chemicals.We suggest using more ventilated suits. Tyvek suits are a great option. Many workers cut slits in the back under the armpit area to keep cooler. Some suits are designed to be more protective in chest area and even have expanded mesh fabric under armpits that helps to vent well. These types of suits are commonly used in the food industry and car painting industry, but are great for polyurethane as well. The next time you purchase a protective suit, look at the features to identify the best suit for the time of year you are spraying.
Spray polyurethane foam is an essential component used by the manufacturing and construction industries. The key to multi-tasking, spray foam is used as insulation across a variety of applications, including walls, roofs, and ceilings, and is even used in industrial settings between pipe fittings or in climate controlled environments. The spray foam formula can be altered to suit different uses, depending on the needs of the application.
Maintaining your equipment seems like an obvious requirement, but keeping your rig up to snuff can seem tedious. Trust us, it’s not the most fun job, but it is a necessity to the life of your rig AND surprise surprise, your equipment too! In this article, our experts pulled together four of the most effective steps in maintaining your rig – aside from your standing oil changes, engine checks, and tire checks.

Save Your Company Money and Time During Cold Temperatures
Weather has always been a factor on the logistics of completing jobs – especially cold weather. Most of us know, when the temperatures reach freezing the job is on hold. But what many of us don’t know is, what is the best way to store equipment and products during these freezing temperatures?
Introducing the Barrel Blazer, a unique game-changer that will deliver magic for contractors far and wide. At SprayWorks, we are always looking out for contractors, searching for ways to help you improve cost in the manufacturing and processing of spray foam and coating materials. It’s our pleasure to introduce the Barrel Blazer. During fall and winter, the most common tech calls are directly due to weather conditions. When material gets cold in the dead of winter, it begins to thicken in viscosity. This begins a slippery slope, no pun intended. But when contractors attempt to process cold material, it creates a domino effect of malfunction. First, the transfer pump may fail to deliver material to the machine at the appropriate time or rate, then the machines goes off ration causing pressure sensors to shut down the machine. Next, error codes may arise, the spray gun may cross over and applicators spray a bad shot of material. During this debacle, the clock is ticking, but no production is taking place which means you may be losing money too. Depending on the particular projects contractors may be working on, it could have serious ramifications to meeting project delivery deadlines. The Barrel Blazer is an ideal alternative to an insulation blanket.

The Machine that is Revolutionizing
the Spray Foam, Coatings, and Polyurea Industries
It resembles a Mars Rover Robot, except that a spray gun is mounted on this motorized mobile spray machine. Introducing the latest innovation in spray coating equipment: The Spraybot, from Sprayworks Equipment Group.
Jim Davidson, President of Sprayworks Equipment Group, LLC in Canton, Ohio has invented a new automated spray application machine that has been patented as the Spraybot. This roving machine is designed to evenly apply spray foam, polyurea, or other coating materials to roofs, bridges, decks, and other large horizontal surfaces. Interestingly enough, automated spray machines are finding a place in floor-coating industries that require the application of elastomers, polyureas, epoxy, and other types of coating materials.
