KENT, Ohio — SprayWorks Equipment recently worked with Natural Polymers to test spray foam materials from across the country. The application portion of the test was conducted at the SprayWorks Equipment facility in Kent, Ohio. After Owens Corning's 2022 acquisition of Natural Polymers, an Illinois-based spray foam manufacturer, the company sought a location to carry out customer focused learnings.

SprayWorks' 28,000-square-foot facility in Ohio provided an ideal location where the equipment, material, and technical support could be managed throughout the process. Contractors spent a full day spraying products on mock wall systems, overseen by experts from Natural Polymers.

"The event represents a milestone in the spray foam industry," John Davidson, operations lead at SprayWorks Equipment, a third-generation applicator said. "For years, Owens Corning has closely watched and competed with our industry through their line of insulation products. This acquisition says a lot about their commitment to spray foam. SprayWorks Equipment has a longstanding relationship with Owens Corning, and we look forward to working with newly-acquired Natural Polymers as they seek to grow the industry. We also share their commitment to increasing the expertise, knowledge, and training of material applicators."
