An increased yield in spray foam means an increased yield in profits. But to ensure the best yield from your spray foam, you have to ensure that it operates as it should—regardless of the temperature.
Factors Affecting Spray Foam Yield
Making sure you get the most mileage out of your spray foam is essential for the growth and longevity of your business. More yield in your foam means less expense per square foot—enabling you to get a job done with the highest possible profit margin.
However, cold weather can drastically affect the yield of your product. For spray foam to function properly, your tank temperature has to be above 70°F / 21°C for 24 hours before application. Failure to keep your tank at the proper temperature means that the foam’s density will be compromised and the application will be far less than favor—if possible at all.
Obviously, in order to get your spray foam up to a workable temperature during the winter months, you’re going to need to heat it up. Conventional suggestions for this practice involve storing your foam in a heated space. But this method could take up to 36 hours to bring the product to the proper temperature—not to mention its expensive to have keep the ambient air in your storage space high enough to heat the foam to 70°F / 21°C.
