Say Goodbye To Windshield Wipers
Posted on February 23, 2022 by Colby Stevens
Driving in rainy conditions can be quite the hassle, especially if your glass does not have any protection which can inhibit your vision when driving. Protecting your glass will virtually eliminate the need for windshield wipers due to the hydrophobic properties a ceramic coating grants the glass. When ceramic coated, water will fly right off the glass as you are driving, giving you a nice clear view in those gnarly rainy conditions. In this blog we will cover the simple steps and tips when ceramic coating your glass!
The Benefits of Ceramic Coating Glass
- Hydrophobic Properties
- Self Cleaning Ability
- Water Spot Resistance
- Limits the use of Windshield Wipers
Everything You Need To Ceramic Coat Your Glass
If your glass has any contaminants or water spot etching you will need to polish your glass to remove them. You do not want to ceramic coat over any water spots and lock them in, you also do not want to have any contaminants interfering with the coating bonding to the glass. Glass Polish will get both jobs done, and prep the glass for coating.
After polishing the glass you will need a product that will not only remove any oils or residue from the polish, but also leave the glass streak free prior to coating application. Sun Shine Glass Cleaner will prepare the glass for coating while leaving the glass streak free.
