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.

“Covers for Causes” by Covercraft Supports Breast Cancer Awareness

Covercraft enters its second year supporting their Covers for Causes program which contributes a percentage of profit from the product sales to breast cancer research programs.

Marty Lichtmann, President of Covercraft, noted sales are growing and the company vowed their continuing support saying, “Almost everyone I know has been touched by cancer, or knows of someone who has had to battle this horrific disease. Research has made great strides, but needs much more support in the effort to find a cure.”

It goes without saying that women have a tremendous impact on the automotive industry, purchasing over half of the new cars sold in the U.S. and influencing 80 percent of all family car-buying decisions (forbes.com).

Women also play key roles within our automotive industry, with positions in management, design, sales and the aftermarket, along with ownership of repair and parts facilities and dealerships.
