If your windshield is full of dirt, dead bugs, and bird droppings, you probably assume the only thing you can really do is take it through the car wash or clean it at the gas station. However, now there’s a new treatment that will help keep your car’s glass clean by providing additional protection and actually making it self-clean itself. Here at GlassWerks, we provide this new Aquapel hydrophobic glass treatment to all of our customers.

What is Aquapel?

Aquapel is a type of hydrophobic glass coating that can be applied to your windshield. This coating doesn’t change how your windshield looks—the glass is still perfectly clear, and you don’t lose any visibility. However, when it rains, the coating actually pulls the droplets of rain together, creating larger drops of water. When these drops become large enough, they fly across the windshield, collecting any dirt and other debris as they do so. These large drops actually collect the dirt and remove it when they fall off the edge of the windshield.

How does this differ from other glass coatings? Those coatings don’t force water droplets to merge together. When these smaller droplets are removed from your windshield, they do grab some dirt and debris, but they aren’t large enough to pull that dirt all the way off the windshield. The result is a streak of dirt that cuts visibility and looks horrible.

Aquapel is designed to remove more than 99 percent of all the dirt and debris on your windshield, plus it will provide improved visibility while driving in the rain. It will also make your windshield wipers more effective and help increase their lifespan as an added bonus.
