If you’re in the spray foam business, then you know what it means to try and work in cold weather. Spray foam simply doesn’t work when the temperature drops too low. This makes business continuity a real challenge, but that’s why Powerblanket Spray Foam Heaters exist. They can keep you working year round, no matter how cold it gets.
Spray Foam and Cold Weather
The cold-weather dilemma is nothing new to the world of spray foam. Winter application has been a challenge for as long as polyurethane spray foam has been around. In fact, in the past, some professionals tried using band heaters on their spray foam totes in order to keep the spray foam warm enough for application. However, this caused more problems than it solved. The problem with using band heaters was rooted in the inefficiency of the product.
Band heaters aren’t that durable to start with, and they create unreliable, and in most cases, unregulated heat levels. Even if a person were to use a band heater that came equipped with a thermostat, they’ll soon discover that it’s unreliable. Ultimately, band heaters can’t deliver even heat distribution. And in the case of spray foam and many other substances, this leads to burnt product—product that flakes and clogs up equipment, pumps, and hoses. Not to mention, band heaters can only work on round metal containers.
The real solution offers something much more efficient and safe. Powerblanket Spray Foam Heaters provide insulation and even heat distribution over the entire container. With a patented blend of technology, our spray foam heaters wrap your container in a protective and durable vinyl shell that heats your product consistently and evenly, without any significant fluctuation in temperature. Actually, the temperature is completely regulated, keeping your spray foam at the ideal temperature for cold weather application. With the Powerblanket solution in place, you don’t have to worry about burnt product, uneven heating, or damage to equipment. Our spray foam heaters were designed with spray-foam application in mind, making them the perfect answer to your wintertime woes.
