Why apply a rain repellent coating to your windshield
Have you ever driven in wet weather and struggled to see the road ahead? It can be a stressful and dangerous experience; however, there's a solution that can make driving in the rain a lot safer and more comfortable: a rain repellent coating for your windshield. Every year, more than 38,700 car accidents in the United States are caused by poor visibility.
A rain repellent coating is a specially formulated solution that is applied to your windshield that creates a water repellent barrier on the glass surface. This barrier causes water droplets to bead up and roll off the glass, making it easier to see through your windshield during rainstorms. Let's take a closer look at the benefits of applying a rain repellent coating on your car windshield.
Improves driving visibility
The primary benefit of applying a rain repellent coating to your windshield is that it improves visibility when driving in wet weather. The water repellent barrier created by the coating causes water droplets to bead up and roll off the glass surface, reducing the amount of water that collects on the windshield. This, in turn, reduces the amount of glare caused by the headlights of other vehicles and makes it easier to see the road ahead.
When water hits a windshield treated with a rain repellent coating, it doesn't stick to the glass. Instead, it forms into small droplets that roll off the windshield. This water beading effect is a sign that the coating is working and that you're driving with better visibility. It also means that you don't have to use your windshield wipers as often, which can be especially helpful during heavy rain.
Best rain repellent for windshields
Not all rain repellent coatings for windshields are created equal. The best windshield rain repellent is the Windshield Defender™ NanoPax®, from Diamon-Fusion International. The product is designed to create a water repellent barrier on your windshield that can last for years, depending on how often you drive and the weather conditions in your area.
How to repel rain on windshields
If you've never applied a rain repellent coating to your windshield before, don't worry, it's an easy process that you can do yourself. Here's how:
Step 1: Clean the glass
Before applying Windshield Defender™ (the car windshield rain repellent coating), it's important to clean the glass surface thoroughly. Use a glass cleaning product and a paper towel or microfiber towel to remove any dirt, grime, or other debris from the windshield. Make sure the glass is completely dry before moving on to the next step.
Step 2: Apply the coating
Wipe the rain repellent glass treatment onto the windshield using the pre-moistened towelettes. It is best to apply the coating using firm, circular, overlapping motions. Make sure to cover the entire windshield with the coating, including the edges and corners. Two pro tips: 1) if you have sensitive skin, wear gloves and 2) avoid applying the coating in direct (hot) sunlight.
Step 3: Wipe down the glass
After applying the coating, wipe the glass with a microfiber towel or cloth to remove any excess silicone oils or haze that may have formed on the surface. The Windshield Defender™ coating has no cure time, which means the coating instantly bonds to the glass and can immediately be used; however, some rain repellent coatings require drying time, so be sure to follow the instructions on the product label.
Step 4: Test the coating
Once the coating is dry, test it out by running water over the windshield. If the water beads up and rolls off the glass, then the coating is working as intended.
When applying a rain repellent coating to your windshield, it's important to use a product that won't leave streaks or residue behind. The best rain repellent coatings for windshields are designed to dry quickly and leave a streak-free finish, ensuring that your windshield is crystal clear and easy to see through.
Using a rain repellent coating on your windshield is a great way to take care of your car. By reducing the amount of water that collects on your windshield during wet weather, you can reduce the wear and tear on your windshield wiper blades. This, in turn, can help extend the life of your wiper blades, saving you money on replacements.
Additionally, a rain repellent coating can help protect your windshield from damage caused by debris kicked up by other vehicles on the road. By reducing the amount of water on the glass surface, the coating can make it easier for your windshield wipers to clear away debris, reducing the risk of damage to the glass.
A rain repellent coating is a great way to improve visibility and make driving in wet weather safer and more comfortable. By creating a water repellent barrier on your windshield, the coating helps water droplets to bead up and roll off the glass, reducing the amount of water that collects on the glass surface. This, in turn, improves visibility and reduces the need for windshield wiper use, while also protecting your windshield from damage.
When choosing a rain repellent coating for your windshield, be sure to look for a product that is streak-free, easy to apply, and long-lasting. With regular use, Windshield Defender™ can help you see clearly during wet weather and protect your windshield from damage, ensuring that you drive safer and more comfortably in any conditions.
