Episode #72, Building a Greener Hot Tub, with Forest Knight of Isotec

Isotec Robot
The robot used to spray Acrylobond at the Isotec factory

It took Isotec International many years to perfect a polyurethane that could replace the typical polyester resin used to back hot tubs. Acrylobond not only offers to same strength as polyester resin, but cures faster, can be applied by a robot (!) and is environmentally friendly. Forest Knight, president of Isotec, takes us through what Acrylobond does and how it can be a time, money-saving and green alternative for hot tub manufacturers.
