Join William Collins as he shares how Spray Sealants impacts many different industries now and how new business opportunities will allow for tremendous growth in markets which have not even been introduced to this technology. Once you sign up for the Free Sealant E-Course, we will be keeping you up to date on new and exciting spray sealant technologies which are just now coming into the marketplace.
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.
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.
We have entered into a new phase of the Spray Foam Hybrid development and we want you, our loyal readers to the Portable Spray Foam blog to be part of that discovery process. We will be doing a lot of spray tests between now and the end of the year in preparation of our public launch which is scheduled for January 1, 2018. We have always believed that it was important that any portable machine have the capacity to apply many different types of two component polyurethane chemistries because we knew that it was important for contractors to have the flexibility to take advantage of changes in the marketplace.
One of the major challenges with most of the portable spray systems in the marketplace today is that they only shoot ” one bullet “. By that we mean that they really are designed to apply just one type of chemistry. We want to offer a ” machine gun ” type spray platform that would give any operator the ability to be as creative as they want to be. We plan on spray testing about 4-6 different polyurethane chemistries over the next 1-3 months which will enable the Spray Foam Hybrid to be used in the insulation, concrete lifting and agricultural barn sealing markets by the time we launch.
So, how did the spray test go with the Foamsulate 50 open cell chemical? Well, see for yourself in the video. Not only were we impressed with the actual finished product, but by all indications it appears as if we are going to get more volume out of the Spray Foam Hybrid than what we had originally designed the system to provide. That is what we call a ” happy surprise ” and one that we can build off of in the future. We also believe that because most open cell spray foam formulations use water as a blowing agent that the Spray Foam Hybrid should be able to apply most other open cell polyurethane spray foam chemistries.
Of course as they say in the stock market ” One day does not make a trend ” so continued spray testing will be necessary to validate some of our new findings.
Stay Tune as is it going to start to get real interesting!!!!
