If your commute is mostly spent crawling along in heavy traffic in an urban setting, then Nanolex Urban Glass Sealant is the glass coating for you. Like most glass coatings, it works by laying down a film of functional ingredients (including, in this case, a high-tech composite material) that hardens to form a fully transparent hydrophobic (water-hating) barrier layer that repels rain, sleet and snow upon contact. However, what makes it special is that its runoff threshold is just 20 mph, which is significantly lower than that of its rivals. As a result, visibility and driving comfort in slow moving traffic is greatly improved, even during extremely wet weather. This is a godsend in poor conditions, when you need to keep an extra careful eye out for pedestrians, cyclists and motorcyclists, who become much harder to spot. Providing that the treated surfaces are properly prepared in advance, each application of Nanolex Urban Glass Sealant will last for between three to six months before needing to be reapplied.
Nanolex Urban Glass Sealant is a solvent-based coating for automotive glass that is optimised for low speed driving in urban environments. It works by laying down a film of reactive compounds and a high-tech composite material that hardens to form a transparent barrier layer that repels rain, sleet and snow upon contact. As a result, rain drops and road spray simply bead up and roll off of treated surfaces, and are blown off by the wind when driving speeds rise above 20 mph. Moreover, this beading also tends to pick up and carry away fresh dirt and grime, meaning that the coating is partially self-cleaning (akin to the Lotus Effect in nature). The net effect of all of these benefits is that Nanolex Urban Glass Sealant significantly improves visibility and driving comfort in poor weather conditions, and greatly reduces the need to use windscreen wipers and screen wash. Furthermore, in the summer months bug splatter washes off with ease, and in the winter de-icing is more quickly achieved.
You should apply Nanolex Urban Glass Sealant in a warm, dry, well-ventilated space out of direct sunlight. To protect your skin, we recommend wearing PB Nitrile Gloves during the application process. In all cases, prepare the glass surfaces you are going to treat by polishing them with Nanolex Glass Polish and then do a wipe down with Nanolex EX to ensure that they are squeaky clean. Next, lightly wet a Nanolex Cotton Applicator Pad with product and work it in to the surfaces to be treated in a circular fashion, using firm pressure. The resulting film should be left to dry for between 5-10 minutes before being buffed off with a Nanolex Microfiber Buffing Towel, so we recommend treating 2-3 windows at a time (it's also worth replacing the Nanolex Cotton Applicator Pad every 2-3 windows, before it starts to fall apart). After all of the surfaces are treated the coating must then be left to cure for a minimum of 2 hours before being exposed to the elements (it is also wise to avoid washing the treated surfaces for a minimum of 72 hours afterwards).
