What are the Benefits of Rain Repellent?

For most of the country, hot summer temperatures coincide with plenty of rainfall. North Carolina and Georgia average at least 4.75 inches per month, which can force your wipers to work overtime just to keep your windshield clear. That’s where rain repellent comes into play. An effective treatment is capable of making every drive through a downpour safer for drivers and passengers alike.
Even if you live in a more arid state like California, treating your windshield with rain repellent provides plenty of advantages.

See Clearer, Drive Safer

Obviously, the top benefit of rain repellent is the improved vision clarity while driving. By forming a chemical bond with your windshield, you can enjoy a level of hydrophobic protection that eases the workload for your wipers. But clearer vision isn't the only benefit to your driving.
According to a University of Michigan study, the effects of rain repellent include “decreasing the minimum visual angle resolved by almost 34% and reducing the response time by more than one second.” As a result, you can expect glare-free driving in the rain, especially at night; making it easier to see and react to what’s going on in front of you.

Clean Easier, Rest Sooner

An often understated benefit for car owners is the impact on windshield cleaning, especially during winter. Rain repellent makes clearing ice and snow much easier by actively preventing both from building up on your windshield. The same can be said about dirt, which gets caught by water and carried away as it glides down your windows.
The hydrophobic coating acts almost like a self-cleaning agent, which can keep your vehicle’s glass looking extra shiny for months and help to reduce water marks.
