Last year I broke down and bought a real foam gun - the type that uses
the replacable cans of foam. Man what a difference it makes over those
crappy cans they sell at HD and Lowes.
I need to buy some more foam for a project and have noticed a wide
price range - for example, at fastenmsc.com a 32 oz can of Enerfoam is
$18 but a 29 oz can of TriggerFoam is only $9. I've also noticed that
HD now sells Hilti foam, but I can't recall the price per oz.
My question - is there any reason to go with a particular brand of
foam? My gut reaction is that urethane foam is urethane foam (like a
chemist friend likes to say, "it's just molecules") and since the
connectors that attach the can to the gun all look to be the same, it
doesn't make sense to buy expensive foam. But then again, I don't know
what the long term effects are - does cheap foam break down over time
What are your thoughts? Any reason not to go for the low-cost foam?
NOTE to reply directly to my e-mail, take off the underscore and
everything after it.
