Auto-Foam + hand pressure sprayer

I use Bilt Hamber Auto-Foam with hand pressure sprayer and i`m very pleased this combination.
Just want to show you some results:


Use 4% - 8% dilution ratio. At below, i used 2 litres water & 150ml Auto-Foam.




Dirty car..





Go, go ,go go...!




After spraying, u can keep couple minutes break..
Don`t let it dry..




Then, show some pressure washer and admire results..







btw, there`s no LSP on car, except bonnet.
Let me try "wipe test":



Do u see anything?




Thank you Bilt Hamber Laboratories, you have made almost perfect pre-wash product

*edit: 120ml = 150ml

Very interesting ....

Been testing Bilt Hamber foam through the power washer and very impressed at the right ratio on well protected vehicle.

Very interesting results you have from pump sprayer...

Good test - anything over 4% will get great results irrespective of application method.

Thanks!

+1 for this. It won`t strip LSP.

But, remember to use 4% - 8% dilution ratio. In this topic, there was about 2 litres water & 150ml Auto-Foam. So, ratio was somewhere between 7-7,5%.
If u use over 8%++ dilution ratio (what a hell is right word for dilution ratio?!), it starts to strip LSP, or so i`ve read somewhere. Bilt Hamber can give correct answer for this?

Gentle in this range but get over 10% and it'll be less friendly, depending on the LSP. Finis Wax can stand repeated washing at well over 10% for example.

Sorry, but I am struggling with % as a dilution ratio.

when you say 10% this means that 10% of the overall solution is product? and so 90% water ?
So is this the same as 1:9 ?

and 4% would be 4:96 and therefore 1:24 ?

Thanks!
Keith

i found it doesn't foam that well in the lance compared to some other products but it does really clean the car well better than other products and i use about 2 inches in the foam bottle topped up with water also few mates noticed it doesn't leave water marks on there chrome wheels
