During the development of the Spray Sealants Gun, a close friend of mine asked if he could spray and seal the bait well on his bass boat. Not being a bass fisherman, I asked him why he would want to do that. ” Well Bill, you see that when I am running about 50 MPH over the lake, my bait well makes a ton of noise because it is not sealed up and I am pretty sure that Big Jake can hear me coming “. Of course, I knew that he was joking, but I wanted to take him on with his challenge, so I was able to get him one of our prototype Spray Sealants Guns and some Black Foam Sealant. He already had the air compressor and because he is a pretty handy guy, he all of the rest of the tools that he needed to make the project work.
When he sent me this video, all I could tell him was that I was quite impressed by not only his ingenuity, but also his skill at using a Go Pro camera. He was able to use the Spray Sealants Gun and apply black sealant that coated the entire bait well and then it also sealed the well from additional water leaks. It took my friend about an hour to prepare the bait well for spraying and then another hour to spray the entire project. When he was done, he told us that he was ” looking for other things to spray ” it was that much fun.
For more than 40 years, there has not been an innovative way to apply one component canister foam as a sealant, until now. Introducing the Spray Sealants Gun for canisters. This simple solution to an age old problem which uses pressurized air to create spray sealants that will save time and money on every project. It’s compact, easily portable and great for all those hard-to-reach areas in which traditional foam kits cannot be readily used. It’s a handy addition for your energy efficiency toolbox.
Because of it’s unique features of the Spray Sealants Gun, it gives the applicator full control of the spray sealant and allows consistent applications of thin beads of black or white spray sealant. It allows almost anyone to do a lot of touch-up quickly and since the sealant itself sets up within 30 minutes, it’s possible to work within a tight timeline so that you can get in and out fast.
Traditionally, there have only been two choices: Bead application and spray application. Some one-component polyurethane materials are easy to apply but are not designed for spraying. For sealing joints, seams or cracks, a one-component foam or canister sealant has been successfully used for 40 years. Projects that require a two-component foam kit are usually more complicated and expensive. While bead application has been effective solution, it is not as effective as a spray application.
Spray sealant applications expand sealing cracks and crevices deeply and thoroughly when applied correctly. This means that spray applications are more effective, and projects are not likely to require any repeat application. Another property of spray sealants and is that they cure upon reaction–much faster than the bead method. Therefore, surfaces can be restored for use quickly.
Yogi Berra was a New York Yankees Hall of Farmer, but he was also the king of creative, always mangling the English language into quotable quips that strangely made sense.. The were commonly called “Yogi-isms ” and one of his most memorable of all lines was ” It’s Deja Vu All Over Again “. Strangely, in the world of lean start-up businesses, there are times when you realize that you have come full circle and your innovation has taken you back to a place that you might have been before. It appears as if Sealant Technologies, Inc is at one of those places now.
Last year at this exact time we were gearing up to start to sell what we called the Spray Pods Gun. We even opened what we called the Spray Sealants Store as we believed that there was a need to have a portfolio of products that would support this very innovative spray technology. We actually started to offer the Spray Pods Gun in January of this year ( 2017) but quickly realized that the some of the internal components of the Spray Pods Gun were not very durable. At least not to our standards which are pretty high so we quickly pulled the gun off the market about a month later. About three months after that we closed the Spray Sealants Store entirely as we knew we needed to go to the next level with that spray technology.
Over the past 60 days, we have made major progress in the development of a new generation of portable spray sealants equipment and have even opened up a new website to highlight what we are now calling the Spray Sealants Gun. In fact, we are making much progress that we actually see use relaunch this spray gun and other supporting components by January 1, 2018. We are racing fast to pull the entire manufacturing process together and because of the need to focus all of our resources into this project, we have put the Spray Foam Hybrid on hold.
So why is the Spray Sealants Gun so unique? Well, for more than 40 years, there has not been an innovation spray foam kit that can deliver spray foam, adhesives and create air barriers all in one system that allows the operator to adjust the spray pattern. This simple solution of a gun that uses pressurized air to create spray sealants will save time and money on every project. It’s compact, easily portable and great for all those hard-to-reach areas in which traditional spray foam equipment cannot be readily used. It’s a handy addition for your energy efficiency toolbox.
