Genius Gun: the easiest PU foam to handle!
A world première in the market of PU foams… simply genius!
Regular users of hand held PU foam often experience inconveniences. For instance: the need to hold the can and operate the adaptor simultaneously, the difficulty of applying the foam and especially the limitations of re-using the foam after the first usage of the can.
For Soudal, continuous product innovation based on market needs is of paramount importance therefore, we have been diligently working on overcoming these inconveniences and the result speaks for itself; GENIUS GUN ®: the easiest PU foam to handle!
The Genius Gun is a specially designed patented trigger mechanism ensuring precise application and removing the need for an additional gun. The ergonomic handgrip fits perfectly and can be easily operated with one hand. The built-in closing system with bung permits re-use of the can for up to 6-weeks.
In short, Genius Gun means
- extreme comfort
- accurate application
Genius Gun, simply genius!
