Nanotechnology treatment for automotive glass surfaces lasts 80,000 km in Canada

Abstract:
Nanoprotect AG from Nanotec is a unique, transparent, protective treatment specifically developed for automotive glass. It creates a water repellent, non-stick glass surface which improves visibility when driving in rain or snow, often to the point where windscreen wipers are not needed.

In most environmental conditions, Nanoprotect AG normally lasts for up to 2 years or 30,000 km. Recent testing of Nanoprotect AG in Eastern Canada has shown that with normal use, the product can last up to 80,000 km on the automotive glass with a single application, even in the extreme conditions of that region.

While driving, rain and snow bead off the automotive glass treated with Nanoprotect AG, which greatly improves visibility. Enhanced visibility on wet roads leads to quicker reaction times when something unexpected happens, and this can literally save lives.
