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 damage happens. So it makes sense to be as methodical and as careful as we can be, from the very first stages of the cleaning process, and not just at the end.

Bilt-Hamber's Auto-foam, the latest addition to our "detailing" range is 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, 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 is gentle too and is for use with all pressure washer foam lances. Applied at a typical 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 it rinses easily too.

Auto-foam is made with biodegradable compounds, is extraordinarily tough on soil and grime, yet harmless to paint, its non-caustic formulation ensures that even with 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 well presented automotive surface, perfectly ready for further treatments. For excessively soiled surfaces, simply increase PIR and/or number of applications.

    Pretty good stuff
    Works very well on our cars with my Nilfisk pressure washer. I had previously used Surfex HD but found that left a thin film that had to be wiped off - jetting did not shift it. This stuff is better since it does not leave that film. We were impressed with the overall result.
  • Auto-Foam
    Had a though detail today on a car that has not seen a proper wash for 3 years, in fact since it was bought. I started off with surfex HD neat in foamgun, i'll have a review on that later on.
    After that, it was time to use the Foam. Nice foaming, and cling time is good actually, even thou BH them self says that it is not designed
    to Foam up heavily or to have uber cling times.
    It softened up the remaining grime pretty good. Remember that this is 3 years of baked on grime and road film/tar, etc. No-nonsense product that works.
    Thou i am concerned about the economics of it, that being said i still need to figure out the ideal % for regular use. So I will keep that reserved, even so you can't beat the price/performance (5L).
    Another great product.
  • Superb prewash solution
    Really like this. Very economical and effective. Highly recommended. Works with either a foamgun or pump sprayer.
  • Another great Bilt Hamber product
    Bilt Hamber never lets me down and Auto foam is simply stunning, first time I used it was on a white nissan cube that looked like it had not been cleaned for a year, I used Auto foam as the pre wash then when i gave it a high pressure wash the car was almost completely clean, the dirt rinsed off the car like it is meant to so it leaves you with surfaces ready for a safe wash.
  • The best
    I have tryed all the foams on amazon and there is nothing better than this one! It is the best!!!!
