TOUCH-LESS is Bilt-Hamber's new eco-friendly snow foam, Bilt-Hamber have designed Touch-Less to be able to work as a contact free car wash. Bilt Hamber Touch-less can be applied using most methods, such as via a pressure washer's chemical tank, a snow foam lance, pump sprayer, trigger/bottle etc. Just like Bilt-Hamber's Auto Foam, Touch-Less is applied typically at 4% PIR, details on how to work this out are set out below. Touch-Less is a bio-degradable sugar-based product, which provides truly exceptional levels of cleaning of automotive paintwork. Unlike other petrochemical-based cleaners TOUCH-LESS offers easy rinsing, easing the effort of subsequent bucket washes and massively helping post-treatments bond too. TOUCH-LESS also contains corrosion inhibitors. Packed in 5 litre pH ~12, contains no phosphates, solvents, NTA, or caustic soda.
TOUCH-LESS is designed to allow for superior and simple application of our new paint protection product TOUCH-ON.
Ricsar Detailing Say: "Touch-Less was designed to be used alongside their new TOUCH-ON paint protection system, which when used in combination offers a truly touchless washing system. Touch-On offers fantastic hydrophobic (water beading) and self cleaning properties, which helps prevent dirt and oils from 'sticking' to the paint, which aids TOUCH-LESS in the cleaning process. TOUCH-LESS can be used as a standalone pre-wash, offering an alternative to their ever popular Autofoam. This environmentally friendly sugar based pre-wash is an extremely capable product, and definitely earns our respect and gains a place in our detailing arsenal."
How To Use
TOUCH-LESS may be applied with trigger spray, pump spray, pressure washer, or snow foam lance. The minimum recommended dilution rate should be 2% PIR (Panel Impact Ratio) and up to 5% for very dirty vehicles. Where application is through trigger spray or pump spray, the dilution calculation is easy to achieve, however, for application with pressure equipment it is essential to determine the amount of water being delivered to the equipment reservoir.
Fill the detergent bottle or reservoir (on machine or lance) up to capacity with plain water. Turn detergent feed to full. Take a large bucket or container and discharge the lance into this, watching the detergent bottle until empty. Once empty, stop.
The following calculations will achieve 4% dilution; Measure the total amount collected and multiply this number by 0.04 (Total can be measured in either volume with a measuring jug or by weight) this is the amount of TOUCH-LESS to use.
Add the calculated amount from STEP TWO to the pressure-washer reservoir and top up to full with cold water and shake in for a few moments.
Apply touchless to entire vehicle or panel by panel. Allow to soak for 1-5 minutes (but never allow to dry). Power-wash off.
It is not necessary to use all diluted touch-less in one wash. One litre of diluted product should last 4-5 washes. Apply to cool panels in shaded conditions. Do not allow this product to dry in use. Keep the bottle neck and lid clean.
