Bilt Hamber Auto Foam Stripping LSP

So got some auto foam and after reading that 4% is to be used with snow foam lance it worked out that I needed 720ml in my 900ml bottle for that ratio!!!

I ended up putting 500ml in and put my foam lance. My car wasnít really dirty but I gave it a go and left to dwell for approx 3 minutes.

Washed off and my roof which was coated with collinite 915 has been totally stripped...

Rest of car was coated in fusso 99 which isnít off but itís beading has definitely been affected!

Any thoughts??

This is what I use, this was worked out with the output of a nilfisk c120 but it seems to be fine with my p150 also.

Autofoam

1%=70ml 430ml water 1:6
2%=140ml 360ml water 1:2.5
3%=210ml 290ml water 1:1.4
4%= 280ml 220ml water 1:0.8
5%= 350ml 150ml water 1:0.4

4% panel impact ratio.

Fill your foam bottle with water, turn your pressure washer on and shoot the water into the bucket until your bottle is empty.

Measure what water you have and divide by 4%

I use a 2 litre snow foam bottle and I fill it with 800ml then the rest with water.

720 ml is 4% impact ratio. I filled my container of 900ml of water and emptied out which was finished at 18litres. I think thatís correct??

I mean my roof has been completely stripped. It was only waxed two weeks ago and was beading a dream. Washing off the autofoam there was no coating left at all.. unbelievable as collinite usually lasts me months

Defo 4% at 720ml based on the 18L output. Haven't experienced AF stripping at 4% though on any of my waxes, used it at the weekend on a coat of fireball fusion and beading was unaffected.

Wash the car with shampoo. Rinse if off well and wait for it to rain. Beading will return. No way 4% autofoam will strip collinite or fusso

I did wash it with bilt hamber auto shampoo and rinsed then lightly sprayed vehicle. The LSP on roof was gone. One bonus is Iíve got to use some sonax bsd for first time. Itís so damn grabby but finishes well....

What PW do you use and I hope you didn't use the entire bottle of foam because that's a huge waste of product.

When you worked out your dilution what position did you have the mixing dial set to?

Iíve a kranzle 160tst. No I hardly used any out of the bottle. It will be efficient as far as product usage. The foam was very thick also. I twisted the mixing dial as far as it would go in the minus direction. I followed a guide on here about it so Iím fairly confident the ratio is correct.
