Aquapel Glass Treatment
at work in the Day Time
and at Night Time!

in the rain, day and night!
Aquapel forms a chemical bond with glass, unlike other products that simply coat glass. As a result, Aquapel lasts up to 6 times longer than other products.
Automotive Rain Repellent Applications: Vehicle windshields, Side Windows, Doors
University of Michigan’s Transportation Research Institute Study:
The Influence of Hydrophobic Windshield Coating on Driver Performance. The study used simulated conditions to study the effect of hydrophobic coatings on windshields. The study indicates that hydrophobic coatings can improve an operator’s visual acuity by nearly 34% over an untreated windshield. Additionally, a driver’s response time to identify a small target was improved by 25 percent, from four seconds to three seconds. One second response time represents about 58 feet of travel distance at 40 miles per hour.
Marine Applications: Use Aquapel Glass Treatment on any glass to repel water.
Tests have proven that Aquapel Glass Treatment helps maintain the appearance of glass as well as keeping salt water spray down. Aquapel will also help keep hard water marks off of the glass. Captains have noticed better vision in the helm and crew members use Aquapel to help keep the glass cleaner, longer.
Household Water Repellent Applications:
Unlike other commercial rain repellents that can wash away in a matter of hours, Aquapel Glass Treatment forms a chemical bond with glass that increases water repellency, causing it to bead and shed. Aquapel Glass Treatment can be used on flat glass to help keep them cleaner longer. Also, use on glass shower doors help keep hard water marks off and help fight mildew and soap scum.
Heavy Duty/Municipal Applications:
Aquapel Glass Treatment will help improve vision for drivers who spend a lot of time driving in inclement weather. Truck drivers, as well as police officers who spend many hours on the road can experience safer driving.

Directions on How to Apply Aquapel:
Step 1: Clean - Thoroughly clean and dry the glass.
Step 2: Apply - Hold the applicator between the thumb and fingers with the pad down and level over the windshield. Squeeze the wings together until a popping sound is heard and liquid is released onto the pad. Use immediately. Wipe the soft pad of the applicator over the glass up and down then side to side to ensure the glass is well covered. Avoid painted surfaces. Remove liquid from non-glass surfaces with dry paper towel.
Step 3: Dry - Wipe the glass with a clean dry paper towel immediately after Aquapel has been applied to the entire windshield. Dispose of applicator and paper towel. Failure to wipe immediately may cause hazing that requires additional buffing with a clean dry paper towel.
