| Aquapel® Glass Treatment faq's|
How long will Aquapel® Glass Treatment last on a vehicle?
Lasts six (6) times longer than other rain repellent glass treatments.
Lasts for months, under normal driving conditions.
How does it work?
PPG’s proprietary hydrophobic glass treatment adheres to glass, forming a chemical bond. Increases contact angle of water, causing it to bead and easily shed off glass.
| Why is hydrophobic (rain repellent) glass treatment beneficial?|
|The results of a recently released report by The University of Michigan’s Transportation Research Institute suggests that the use of hydrophobic windshield coatings has the potential to greatly improve driver visual performance in rainy conditions. The study--"The Influence of Hydrophobic Windshield Coating on Driver Performance" indicates that hydrophobic coatings can improve an operator’s visual acuity by nearly 34 percent over an untreated windshield. Additionally, driver’s response time was improved by 25 percent, from four seconds to three seconds. One second in response time represents about 58 feet of travel distance at 40 miles per hour.|
| How much coverage does it give?|
|One applicator will do one average windshield or two side windows.|
| How much time does it take to apply?|
|Applies in minutes to a clean, dry windshield.|
| How is it different from other rain repellent products?|
