“Time may change me, but I can’t trace time.” – David Bowie
This issue marks my first as Editor-in-Chief of SprayFoam Magazine, and I could not be more proud.
It also marks my return to the Spray Polyurethane Foam industry after an absence of some years. As expected, there have been changes.
Apologies to Mr. Bowie, but in the spray foam industry we can trace time. Since I last edited a spray foam magazine there have been legislative changes in energy efficiency, sustainability, and fire safety. All of these rulings have impacted formulations, equipment, training – driving the industry to new heights of innovation. And the evolution is absolutely traceable because not only are the codes time-stamped with adoption dates, so too are the individual products when they pass. Over the last few weeks I have been tracing the changing timeline of an industry that is constantly striving to improve and is becoming more mainstream in the process. Some of these innovative changes are reflected in our article, “Spray Rig 101” on page XXX.
Over the last few weeks I have also been tracing the timeline of SprayFoam.com and SprayFoam Magazine. As we move forward, there will, of course, be some changes. We will be returning to the core of what made us the most powerful spray foam multi-media site – a renewed focus on the essence of the industry – Question & Answer forums, safety, and innovative techniques that will drive your business to thrive and grow. These articles will join the project profiles and breaking news articles that you expect. We also have some other projects in the works, so be sure to bookmark the site and sign up for our newsletter so that you don’t miss any of the changes.
Time may have changed me – but not that much. Those of you who have worked with me before will recognize this line and will also know that I do mean it: We are always looking for great projects. Please feel free to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
