Resealable Spray Foam

If you've used cans of spray foam, you know the frustration of the foam hardening before the can is finished. This episode of "Tool Hound" explores a new foam that can be resealed between uses. In many ways, this foam is like regular spray foam. However, with Hilti's new product, the straw bends back to be put on the tab on the nozzle, preventing air from getting into the can and the straw, and the foam remains good to go. When you want to use the foam again, unfold the straw, blow out the discharge, and spray. It's nice to finally have a can of spray foam that you don't have to treat like a fine bottle of wine. You don't need a special occasion to open it.
