Spray foam is becoming increasingly popular as a choice of insulation or roofing material. This means that builders and contractors are seeing a rising demand from property owners who are seeking help with these types of projects.
Of course, these professionals can’t even consider doing this type of work unless they have the right equipment and tools. The first step in preparing to serve customers seeking this type of project is to assess the existing equipment and obtain any additional supplies that may be needed.
While there are a wide range of items that can be used to perform this type of job, there is one type of equipment that has become a common staple on spray foam insulation job sites. This critical piece of a spray foam installer’s arsenal? Graco spray guns, Reactors(Registered Trademark Logo) and other equipment. Graco is a leading manufacturer of spray guns and other handling and measuring equipment, including tanks, pumps and accessories.
With its well-known reputation for building high-quality, reliable equipment that is durable enough to withstand the demands of regular strenuous use on the job site, Graco has established a huge loyal following among the building industry. Many contractors likely couldn’t imagine trying to attempt their spray foam jobs without using Graco Reactors(registered trademark logo), spray guns and other tools.
Equipping your jobsite with tools from Graco is a smart financial move. Because these items tend to have a long lifespan and need minimal maintenance while operating with less downtime, they allow you to keep the jobsite flowing more efficiently without interruptions, meaning you can complete jobs quickly and avoid costly delays.

The choices of spray guns offer a lot of options, so you can pick those that best meet your needs. You can choose from Fusion AP and Fusion CS,, Probler P2, and GX7 models.

Cleaning this gun is quick and simple. It also has an easy to replace tip that comes in a variety of sizes.
We also have mix chamber kits, flat tips, extension “cannon” tips. For example flat tips allow spray foam insulation applicators to fill the width of a stud wall with one pass. An Extension “cannon” tip enables the Fusion AP gun to shoot a longer distance with a narrower pattern to access confined spaces in attics and crawl spaces.
