Keeping Your Spray Foam Gun Clean

Keeping Your Spray Foam Gun Clean

A Spray Foam Gun is an essential piece of equipment in spray polyurethane foam (SPF) insulation applications. This device combines and dispensates two-part raw materials delivered by the proportioning machine, giving rise to successful insulation applications.

To guarantee that two-part materials don’t come into contact and solidify inside a spray foam gun’s mixing chamber, air must be continuously supplied to it through “purging.” This process helps guarantee optimal results when spraying foam onto surfaces.

Adjusting the Flow Rate

The nozzle attached to the gun is connected to a clear suction tube that allows users to adjust flow rate according to household water pressure. With three different metering tips included in every standard Foam Gun model, you’re sure to find one that meets your household’s water pressure needs.

Controllable metering is an advantage of the spray foam gun assembly, as it gives you complete control over how much material is sprayed. This feature can be especially helpful for applications requiring lower output to reduce overspray.

Equivalent flow of both A-component and B-component chemicals is necessary in all two-component polyurethane foam systems to guarantee proper performance, curing, and maximum yields. Blockages in either chemical post will result in off-ratio foam.

Changing the Can

A can attached to a gun makes for a smoother, less messy application. Additionally, it helps keep the spray nozzle lubricated and the tip clean – something difficult with disposable foaming adhesive.

To get the most from your foaming adhesive investment, it’s best to find a high-quality manufacturer who sells top-notch products and then take time to read its instructions on the can. Doing this will guarantee maximum benefit from your investment while avoiding potential hassles caused by clogged spray nozzles.

When you need an old-school foaming adhesive, HANDI-STICK(tm) brand has got what you need. Their pressurized cans and flush systems deliver fast results with less mess – making this tool one of the most indispensable parts of your spraying arsenal for years to come.

Cleaning the Gun

Maintaining a spray foam gun requires more than simply washing its outside and tip. It requires maintaining its interior as well, which includes cleaning the mixing chamber and using an exclusive lubricant on all internal parts.

To effectively clean a spray foam gun, make it part of your routine. Doing this makes keeping it clean easier and allows for improved spray quality.

Uncured foam often gets trapped in spray foam guns and other equipment, but this can easily be removed with the correct solution. We offer pressurized cans and flush systems that attach to your spray foam system for quick foam removal.

Cleaning the Tip

If you’re an avid foam user, chances are the tip of your gun gets dusty quickly. That’s why a thorough spray foam tip cleaning routine should be part of every foam enthusiast’s arsenal.

One way to achieve this is by using a gun cleaner that does the job without irritating your eyes or hands. 

With the right spray foam tips, you can maximize your product’s performance.
