Is Auto-Foam pH neutral?

Auto-Foam is alkaline, but importantly it is non-caustic and it’s the latter that causes the problem in damaging coatings. Caustic soda (sodium hydroxide) can dull and leave finishes matt and lifeless when used long-term, auto-foam will never do this.

The pH preoccupation has arisen due to information propagated by self-professed experts on the internet.  Most damage to car finishes is caused by particulate based road films that cause abrasive damage when removed by washing with mitt or sponge-induced hologram scratching and paint wear. Our Auto-Foam is designed to remove as much of this a possible before use of sponge or mitt and this massively reduces the chance of mechanical damage. 

Even some manufacturers of so called ceramics, last stage products and waxes insist on a pH 7 (neutral) shampoo or cleaners and this is astonishing considering the normal range for rain water is pH 5-6. Our Double Speed-Wax can be washed around 60 times with Auto-Foam and still resist removal.
