Carwash Connection: Friction vs. touch-free

Carwash Connection: Friction vs. touch-free

There’s more to the difference than just brushes and high-pressure water.

In this week’s Carwash Connection video, Associate Publisher – Editorial Rich DiPaolo delves into the differences between operating a friction in-bay automatic (IBA) versus a touch-free one.

DiPaolo says, “One of the key differences in friction versus touch-free in-bay automatic carwashes is in the chemistry used.” 

To learn more about the differences between these machines, be sure to watch the video.
