Unlike traditional glass coatings that cover the surface structure of the glass,creating a layer of non-stick and water repellent chemicals, the AquaShield glass treatment follows the contours of the glass surface right down to the nanometer level. The results are small nanometer thin layers that are enormously durable, and UV resistant.
AquaShield Clear is specially formulated and tested for automotive glass. The nano coating shows a highly durable, water and dirt repellent effect on automotive glass surfaces and is formulated with an inorganic sol-gel technology. This nanotechnology is based on coated solid silica which is an inorganic material,and therefore UV resistant. AquaShield Clear represents the latest technology for driving safety, as proven by research institutes, which concluded that a hydrophobic coating applied on a glass surface can improve a driver visual perception over 30% and his response time by 25%.At a speed 70 km/h ( 43 miles/h) this means one can stop 20 m ( 60 ft.) earlier than without AquaShield Clear.Successful durability testing was performed by an independent, accredited USA laboratory with astounding 500,000 windscreen wiper cycles. 500,000 cycles is the average use of windscreen wipers over a period of 5 years.Accordingly, what was impressive even after the testing process, the coating still indicated a good water repellent effect, and did not require a re-application.
