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.
