Foam Use

Nothing Else Stacks Up!

How Foam Makes a Difference

  • Water Reduction
  • Increased Surface Contact Time
  • No Run-Off
  • FILLS Cracks and Voids
  • Increased Absorption
  • Provides a Visual Marker
  • Calibration
  • Reduces Chemical Run-Off into Waterways
  • Biodegradable

Incorporating ProFoam Platinum with liquid chemicals used in industry --Pest Control, Sanitation, Construction, Manufacturing, Turf Industries, Food Processing, Automotive, Poultry, and Horticulture –creates a new treatment process that liquids alone can’t provide. This formula also reduces water consumption.

Michael Howe clearly remembers the plane ride from Calgary, where, making notes on his airline napkin, he committed himself to developing a new and much needed platform for the Pest Control Industry. During thefour hour flight he sketched the next leg of his professional journey. Michael named the company NPD and he rapidly drafted the first steps necessary in creating a non-repellent foam that would blend with other chemicals used in the pest control industry. With the advent of Integrated Pest Management (IPM) trending around the turn of the century, the timing was perfect. His vision was to develop tools--a product and delivery system that would allow technicians to eliminate pests in the least invasive manner possible.

Foam was not a new commodity; in fact foam has been used in agriculture as a marker over the years. In pest control, a form of repellent foam was used sparsely since the early 60’s, yet it had not been studied or developed as a viable solution on how it would help in the eradication of insects. Nor had a non-repellent foam ever been developed.

There have been many supporters along the way, from universities, chemical developers researchers and industry leaders, all who understand the benefits of ProFoam Platinum. NPD’s ProFoam Platinum now celebrates 10 years in the marketplace. Great Foam, Needs Great Delivery.

However, there was still a huge hurdle in order for foam to gain full access into an IPM system for Pest Control companies. There wasn’t an effective foam delivery system in place. Foam with all its attributes, wasn’t as easy to apply as liquid, because the proper equipment wasn’t designed. Howe went back to the drawing board, to create and patent a Foam Generation delivery system. JackPlus, a handheld foamer that could also be used as a liquid applicator, became available for foam treatments.
