How To Get Thick Snow Foam

How To Get Thick Snow Foam

Posted in NEWS AND UPDATES by Autobrite on May 22nd 2019
Snow foam prewash is a fantastic addition to a car detailers kit and is sprayed onto a vehicle to break down the dirt, alleviating the need to harsh scrubbing at the later stages of car cleaning. Using snow foam is a trick of the trade and is a great and inexpensive way to get your car looking like it just drove out of the showroom, but while simple to use, perfecting the application technique will pay dividends down the line. A thicker snow foam means more dirt clinging ability, so the thicker you lay it on, the cleaner the car becomes!

Right Tools

Applying snow foam relies on a pressure washer with a specially adapted snow foam lance. When sprayed, the pressurised jet of water pushes the snow foam through the mesh of the lance, which agitates the mixture and turns it from a liquid into a thick and soapy foam. To get thick snow foam you’ll need a good quality product and a high performing lance, ensuring that you replace the mesh once it wears down so that your snow foam doesn’t become limp and runny.

Mix It

Many people forget to mix their snow foam, thinking that the more concentrated the formula, the thicker the foam but this is not the case. In order for the foaming agents to become properly activated it’s important to mix the solution to 1-part snow foam with 3 parts water or follow the manufacturers specific guidelines on the bottle.

Dry the Car

Ensuring the car is dry before applying snow foam can help ensure that your thick snow foam stays that way. While it’s an easy mistake to make, the car being wet can dilute the solution and cause it to slide off before it has gripped any dirt, so giving it a once over with a microfibre cloth before applying is always advisable.
