- Energy bills are not getting any lower so it is nice to know a company is offering a fast and easy way for the Do-It-Yourself Contractor to apply spray foam insulation without the need for electricity or bulky equipment.
Diyfoamsupply.com's parent company was the originator of the FastKick dual cartridge spray gun with over a million board feet applied by handymen throughout the world.
The simplicity of the FastKick cartridge system has been the key to its success. The design of the application device makes it possible to spray evenly, unlike bulky, complicated equipment that can spray off ratio.
The back of the gun is a simple air motor with two positive displacement rods connected to it and acting as one. When activated, the air motor pushes forward the two positive displacement rods with round discs attached through a factory pre-filled disposable plural cartridge.
As the rods push the A and B components of the spray foam through the dual cartridges they meet and are thoroughly mixed to become one chemical. The air atomizer breaks the material up into a spray pattern and within seconds the material expands and hardens. Using the FastKick cartridge system results in a highly insulated foam that fills all cracks and crevices. Using this special process avoids air infiltration associated with other types of insulation.
The hoses and guns can be easily maintained and require zero clean up between uses. You can stop at any time after emptying a cartridge because there is no material going through the gun itself, only the disposable cartridges.
The cartridges are pre-factory filled and come in a variety of densities. A .5 Open Cell Urethane Foam for a super yield to fill entire areas between studs, a 1.5 Closed Cell Urethane Foam with a higher R - Factor that will give more strength to the entire building and a 3 pound density urethane foam for exterior roof applications or repairs on existing Spray Foam Roofs.
You will need an Air Compressor that is 5HP electric or 8HP Gas and 3/8" ID air hose. As with any spray foam type product you will need a charcoal respirator or fresh air supply.
