3 Ways Disposable Spray Foam Kits Improve Your Projects & Bottom Line
Wholesale spray foam insulation kits help you meet quality standards: While staying on budget & on time.
A disposable spray foam kit is one of the most versatile (and important) products for commercial and residential insulation projects. When used properly, they’re a cost-effective game changer for these 3 reasons:
High-pressure rigs may be your first choice over a foam kit because they offer a low cost per board foot when processing spray foam out of 55-gallon drums. But that doesn’t mean your projects won’t need a reliable backup. If the job is not substantial enough to cover the expense of sending a rig for a half-day, you may be wasting your resources. Plus, what is your plan for dreaded rig malfunctions that could cause you to stop working altogether?
For projects of different sizes, unexpected rig breakdowns and other on-the-job issues, spray foam insulation kits could be your saving grace. These kits will ensure your projects stay on time and on budget.
Our recommendation is to have a few kits available for every project so you don’t have to stress over common insulation issues, like the ones that have kept you from meeting deadlines in the past.
Foam kits are an easy-to-use option you can count on for high-quality insulation when you need to:
- Finish air sealing touch-ups
- Fix last-minute SPF repairs
- Work on smaller insulation projects or half-day jobs
- Insulate hard-to-reach areas
- Find a backup for a broken rig
2. Quality Control:
Foam kits have come a long way in the past few years, which has allowed them to be an option for miscellaneous needs that arise in contract insulation work. Disposable spray foam kits now come with upgraded chemicals for a better mix and improved gun’s (and tips) for increased spray accuracy. At IDI Distributors, our industry experts have chosen the best spray foam insulation kits, ones they use themselves, to supply at wholesale prices to our contractors.
Our IDI wholesale spray foam insulation kits offer:
- More precise tips and guns spray for increased accuracy
- Improved formula for a better mix and high-quality spray foam insulation
- More foam production & longer lasting storage (when stored properly)
- IDI support and training course teach your crews how to spray and store them properly
- Color-changing tips — Handi-Foam color-changing gun tips let your team know when it’s too cold to spray before they waste time and spray too much underperforming foam.
Knowing how to get the most foam out of your disposable spray foam kits is half the battle when it comes to getting your investment’s worth. Training your crew is the other half. Inexperienced members could put a dent in your budget by not understanding how to properly spray and store your disposable kits.
Effectively preparing & spraying foam kits — Ensure your crew doesn’t waste product by spraying too much or spraying ineffective foam. Make sure your crew knows what they’re doing with your equipment on your projects by teaching them how to properly prepare a spray foam kit for safe, accurate and quality spray foam.

Effectively storing your spray foam kits — This helps you use all of the foam in the kit, instead of wasting a half-used kit (and your investment) by throwing it away after just one job. At IDI, our experts have used disposable spray foam insulation kits over the course of six months and produced quality foam every time.
When you’re done spraying and ready to store, follow these storage steps:
- Leave expended tip (full of foam) on the gun
- Set the safety
- Close down the cylinders (This helps you avoid adding air or draining pressure.)
Note: If you’re going to let it sit for longer than 2 weeks, don’t leave the ISO inside the hose as it will crystallize inside it. Instead follow these steps:
- Pull the tip off
- Use a disposable bin to spray out foam until you have a good spray and tack-free foam
- Put the expended tip back on
- Store for up to 30 days
