Improve Your Foul Weather Driving Vision
Aquapel® Glass Treatment improves a driver’s ability to see clearly and drive more safely. This proven, innovative technology is a long-lasting windshield rain repellant that:
- Rain beads up and rolls off
- Snow and ice are easier to remove
- Bugs and tree sap come off glass more easily
- Reduces glare in the rain, especially at night
- Eliminates windshield streaking
- Lasts for months in normal driving conditions
What makes Aquapel different?
Aquapel Glass Treatment, developed by PPG Industries, forms a strong chemical bond with the glass surface at the molecular level for a longer lasting effect. Unlike other commercial rain repellents that wash away in a matter of hours, one treatment lasts for months under normal use. Aquapel Glass Treatment can be applied in minutes while your windshield is being repaired or replaced and does not affect the length of your repair appointment.
Aquapel is a competitor to Rain-X®. However, unlike Rain-X, Aquapel is not a silicone-based compound. Aquapel Glass Treatment uses a form of nanotechnology in which its fluorinated compounds create a long-lasting, durable chemical bond with the glass surface. This causes rainwater to bead up and roll off the glass easily. Since Aquapel chemically bonds with the glass surface, Aquapel lasts much longer than silicone-based rain repellents and does not wipe off if you use your windshield wipers. You can expect it to last as long as six months in Rochester’s normal weather conditions. Aquapel also does not leave a haze on the glass, which is a common complaint with windshields that have been treated with Rain X.
