Sealant Technologies, Inc launched its first Air Barrier Spray Sealants in 2005 and the spray technology has be saving companies a tremendous amount of energy every since then. The proper use of an air barrier to stop an air leak has proven to significantly reduce heating and cooling costs, improve building durability and create a healthier indoor environment. Currently, that spray technology has been offered only to large commercial building projects that could afford its application so it has been prohibitive to offer this to other markets such as existing residential homes or even agricultural buildings. Until now! The Air Barrier Platform includes the patent pending Spray Pods machines which are portable and very easy to use to seal air leaks.
The Spray Pod Gun is unique in that it is designed to spray 24oz and 29oz pressurized cans of polyurethane spray adhesives and foams. For more than 40 years, there really has not been any innovation when it comes to the can foam & foam kit industry and yet the need to air seal has become even more critical to developing an air tight building envelope.

The patent pending Spray Pod Maxi is a very affordable and effective way of applying an air sealant through a 24oz or 29 oz pressurized can. The Spray Pod Maxi can spray a polyurethane adhesive for any contractor that needs to air seal drywall or other particle board when it is installed. The Spray Pods Gun on the Maxi has been designed to allow the use of 24 & 29oz cans and because it has an adjustable nozzle pattern the operator can go from a bead pattern to a fan pattern in a matter of seconds. This allows the operator to use the Spray Pod Maxi to apply the spray adhesives or can foam quickly and with a uniform coverage.
An air barrier is any substance that prevents outside air from coming in, and inside air from moving out. In addition to causing drafts and lowering the comfort level of a building, air can carry moisture in the form of water vapor that can get inside of wall and roof assemblies and condense back into liquid form.
Air leaking into a building envelope can carry far more water vapor than could enter through diffusion. The driving force of air movement is differences in air pressure. Differences in pressure either cause air to move into a building from the outside (infiltration), or to move out of a building from the inside (exfiltration). Air pressure differences around building envelope assemblies are primarily caused by the stack effect, chimneys, wind, and forced hot-air heating systems.
