Technologies recommends using closed cell foam in 5 gallon buckets because they are easy to transport, manage and dispose of. The closed cell spray foam should operate seamlessly through portable spray foam machine. The integration of the spray equipment and portable spray foam machines is a new idea, but one that is really gaining support. What will make all of this work well for the entire spray foam industry is to offer closed cell 5 gallon pails in order to make all of this work.
