Bonding Solutions Introduces Convenient Aerosol Foaming No-Run, No-Mess Degreaser

Salt Lake City, UT (9/24/13) – Bonding Solutions has introduced Like90 Foam-0™ a powerful zero VOC foaming degreaser that cleans like a solvent. Foam-0 comes in a convenient aerosol can. It creates a powerful foam that stays where you spray it. It removes oil, grease, wax, silicone, and other contaminants from topcoats and primers, bare metal and plastic in preparation for painting. Foam-0 is biodegradable.

Bill Kernahan, Bonding Solutions’ Marketing Manager, said “Foam-0 is a great first prep degreaser. People like it because it’s a foam and doesn’t run off the panel or bumper like standard degreasers so there’s no mess”. According to Kernahan, Foam-0 works great with a towel and can be used with a scuff pad to degrease and abrade at the same time.

SCRS RDE Series Addresses Consolidation Trend

Rarely a day passes where the headlines of collision industry trade publications don't cover stories of multi-store operators or collision industry consolidators purchasing local collision repair businesses. There is an obvious awareness in the industry that nationally recognized collision repair brands are actively seeking larger market share through targeted acquisitions of independent business, and that the rate of such acquisitions is only increasing. The Society of Collision Repair Specialists (SCRS) has included several tracks in their Repairer Driven Education (RDE) series at the SEMA Show, specifically to address the trend and arm industry members with insight they can use in their business.

Estimating, Blueprinting and Billing a Focus During Repairer Driven Education at SEMA

Successful collision repair businesses understand that profitable repairs stem from a well-conceived repair plan that accounts for both the necessary tasks and a thorough accounting of the costs associated with performing them. Because of this, the Society of Collision Repair Specialists (SCRS) has maintained an emphasis on seminars that focus on damage analysis and cost assessment during the upcoming Repairer Driven Education series at the 2013 SEMA Show. The four day show opens November 5th, and is held at the Las Vegas Convention Center in Las Vegas, Nevada.

"Good estimates can't be formulated without in depth knowledge of required operations and the technology that drives them," shared SCRS Vice Chairman Andy Dingman. "Understanding the physical requirements of the repair process and what the manufacturers expect that process to look like is probably the most critical foundation for success in writing accurate repair plans."
