Bilt-Hamber Auto-foam.

There is absolutely no point in using expensive waxes and sealants striving to achieve a perfect end finish if you don’t get the basics right at the outset. Most swirls and paint imperfections have to be addressed later on in the process because of poor detailing preparation and the effects of Foreign Object Damage (FOD) on paint (such as 'own goal' damage from grit and grime) having to be removed. However careful we all might strive to be, sometimes, we make mistakes and damge happens. So it makes sense to be as methodical and as careful as we can be, from the very first stages of the detailing process, and not just at the end. Bilt-Hamber therefore, is pleased to announce Auto-foam, the latest addition to our detailing range and the result of extensive in-house research and development. Auto-foam will reduce even further the possibility of damage to paintwork by presenting you with beautifully clear FOD free paint, ready for subsequent detailing.

Bilt-Hamber Auto-foam is a new generation premium quality, ultra high foaming water based pre wash treatment, designed to soak and saturate soiled vehicle paintwork prior to the application of vehicle shampoo and paint food. Auto-foam will not affect LSP and is designed for use with all pressure washer foam lances. Applied at a PIR (Panel Impact Ratio) of 4%. Auto-foam will panel dwell for typically 5-8 minutes. Auto-foam is formulated specifically to offer maximum wetting, without drying and setting.

Auto-foam has been formulated and blended by us to be tough on soil and grime, but harmless to paint, its non caustic formulation ensures that even regular use will not attack paint binders. Our hard working surfactants will attack and penetrate the hardest of road dirt and grime without the need for manual intervention. During the panel dwell period, Auto-foam’s bubbles will systematically burst and move, encouraging our soaking and cleansing agents to start working. The effects of road grime are neutralised by them, by being bonded within our blend of surfactants, then lifted from painted surfaces and physically removed, minimising harm caused by swirling and marking during subsequent detailing. When its work has been done, Auto-foam may be washed off in a conventional manner, leaving a immaculately presented automotive surface, perfectly ready for further treatments. For excessively soiled surfaces, simply increase PIR and/or number of applications.

We know that not all detailing enthusiasts will have access to water effluent facilities so we have blended Auto-foam with only biodegradable compounds. 5 litres of high powered, totally safe Bilt-Hamber Auto-foam is available for just £14.30 (excluding post & packing) and advance orders are now being taken. First deliveries should be with end users by April 30th. Please register your interest here, or contact your usual stockist. Finally, in addition to our friendly aerodrome contacts and car dealers, I would also like to take this opportunity to thank PJS and Bigpickle for their honest feedback and help in trialling Auto-foam, in a wide range of conditions and when they really could have been doing something rather more interesting than experimenting with different settings for us. Thanks guys.

Al.

Interested too

two questions:
Can this also be used as a "normal" shampoo for a post foam bucket wash?

Are the any impacts to using warm/hot water with this product?

Its a fiver Andy. But for retail orders taken between now and the 30th, we'll chuck in anything else you want for no extra carriage charge.

I'll let Pete answer your points Cap'n M.
