Aerosol solvent degreasers are commonly used in car body repair for several purposes:

Cleaning Surfaces
Before any repair or painting work begins, it's essential to ensure that the surface is free from contaminants. Aerosol solvent degreasers are used to clean the surface of oils, grease, wax, and other contaminants that can prevent paint and fillers from adhering properly

Preparation for Paint
After bodywork is done, before applying primer or paint, the surface needs to be immaculate. Even fingerprints can cause problems with paint adhesion. A quick wipe down with a solvent degreaser ensures that the surface is ready for paint

Spot Cleaning
During the repair process, there may be instances where a small area needs to be cleaned without disturbing the surrounding areas. Aerosol degreasers are perfect for this because they can be directed precisely where needed

Removing Adhesive Residue
Sometimes, tapes or adhesive-backed materials are used during the repair process. Once these are removed, they can leave behind a sticky residue. Aerosol solvent degreasers can help in breaking down and removing these residues

Checking for Imperfections
After body filler or putty has been applied and sanded, a light mist of degreaser can be sprayed over the area. This will highlight any low spots or imperfections in the surface, making them easier to spot and correct

Cleaning Tools and Equipment
Apart from cleaning the car's body, degreasers can also be used to clean tools and equipment used during the repair process.

When using aerosol solvent degreasers, it's essential to work in a well-ventilated area and use appropriate personal protective equipment (PPE) like gloves and safety glasses. Some degreasers can be harmful if inhaled or if they come into contact with the skin, so always read and follow the manufacturer's safety recommendations.
