The first time I heard of a GlassParency window treatment or coating I didn’t quite grasp the concept. I wondered what could be done to improve the glass fresh from the factory. Isn’t brand new glass perfect? Glass does not oxidize or fade like paint does, so what would the point be to get a window coating treatment. Well, truth be told, glass can be enhanced for many reasons, including;
- Safety: Most of us would consider ourselves and everyday driver. We are most concerned about things that are practical and how the product is going to benefit their vehicle and their driving experience. The number one thing for us is that we get to and from where we need to go in safety. GlassParency window treatment increases visibility in the rain, at night and during snow. It increases a driver’s reaction time by up to 34%. Optically improves the clarity of the glass and reduces night and day glare.
I can personally attest to the reduced glare as this was one of the things that not only annoyed me most but caused the most visual problems for me.
One other thing that I love is that fact that during wet weather I don’t need to use my wipers nearly as much which only extends the life of my wipers.
- Ease of Maintenance: Most people don’t “love” to clean. GlassParency window treatment helps protect against hard water staining and mineral spotting reducing the amount of time it takes to remedy these issues. Also dirt, dust and debris are less likely to stick to treated glass.
How many times have you washed your car only to find bugs still in the windshield… annoying! A simple wipe of your wiper blades and washer fluid will remove most bugs on treated glass. If there are still some a simple wet rag or towel will do the trick.
This easy cleaning is great for show cars, classics and exotics. They don’t see much weather usually but when they are pulled you want them to look as good as possible as quickly as possible.
- Protection: Protecting the glass is different than paint, but many of the same elements that deteriorate paint can slowly beat up the glass as well. GlassParency helps protect against hard water staining and mineral spots. Bugs, snow, ice and dirt are easier to remove. It keeps glass cleaner improving overall aesthetic of the glass which is especially nice for show cars.
Brand new factory glass is not perfectly smooth. If you look at the window glass through a microscope it will look more like peaks and valleys. There are pores in the glass that create places for things such as water, dirt, dust, ice and bugs to grab on and get “stuck” to the glass. GlassParency window treatment fills these pores and give the glass a more optically clear view. It also seals the glass to help reduce road debris damage. Sealing the glass and filling in the pores helps the glass repel the various contaminants the windows will encounter during its life.
I would recommend getting GlassParency installed at least on your windshield but all of your vehicle’s windows as well. One of the great things that comes with the initial installation treatment is a 3-year warranty.
