An improvement in energy efficiency is perhaps the most effective selling point for spray foam contractors trying to communicate the benefits of SPF insulation and roofing to their customers. However, efficiency isn’t relegated to just the final product of a spray foam application; the process itself can benefit from efficiency-improving initiatives. Graco had that notion in mind when designing a proportioning system with the hope that it would operate more efficiently than anything currently on the market. “It was 18 months of design time and field testing, and before that, a year of market research,” said Nick Pagano, Worldwide Product Marketing Manager for Graco’s Applied Fluid Technologies Division.
Success came in the form of producing a proportioning system that not only improved efficiency, but performance as well–all while lowering operating costs for end-users.
