With hot summer heat around the corner, building owners, facility managers, and homeowners alike will be paying more attention to energy savings and the efficiency of their building envelope. Whether it’s a remodeling project or new construction, professionals should consider the use of two-component foam sealants or ready-to-use spray foam products to improve occupant comfort and ensure both cooling and heating energy efficiencies.
For insulation projects, DAP™, a manufacturer of sealants and adhesives, recommends its two-component professional foam systems. Touch ’n Foam® professional two-component spray foam kits are portable, self-contained dispensing systems. The two-component polyurethane spray foam kits provide thermal insulating and sound attenuating benefits and are low pressure, permanent, and dry within minutes of application.
Touch ’n Foam spray foam kits use disposable, pressurized chemical cylinders that dispense polyurethane spray foam, eliminating the need for external air compressors, pumping equipment, or dry nitrogen. These systems provide quick and easy foam application for repairs and renovations, new installations, and production applications. The two kits available from DAP are the Touch ‘n Foam Pro System 200, which is ideal for medium-sized projects such as sealing basement sill plates/band joists, and the Touch ‘n Foam Pro System 600, which is designed for larger insulating projects.
