What does a glass treatment do to help vision? The chemical repels the raindrops. Raindrops bead up and roll off the windshield. It’s so good in some conditions that for a while you don’t even need to turn on your wiper blades when it starts raining. For night driving, the glass treatment can reduce the glare from lights.

Driving with a glass treatment can make those rainy spring days much safer.

So does the use of glass treatment sound too good to be true? Applying a glass treatment does work; however, you must repeat the application because the chemical will disappear over time. One recent entry into the glass treatment market is PPG’s Aquapel glass treatment that makers claim can last up to six months between applications.

Aquapel glass treatment causes rain to bead and shed off windshield and other automotive glass. It can be applied in as little as five minutes and last up to six months.

A University of Michigan Transportation Research Institute study found as much as a 25 percent improvement in a driver’s response time after a car windshield is coated with glass treatment.

Aquapel Glass Treatment improves a driver’s ability to see clearly and drive safer. It can give windshield wipers an ally against rain, snow, dirt and bugs. Aquapel glass treatment helps drivers see clearly and thus drive safer.
