Nanolex Urban Glass Sealant is an advanced solvent-based coating that lays down a film of high-tech composites and functional additives that hardens to form a fully transparent hydrophobic barrier layer that repels rain, sleet and snow upon contact. The coating works in conjunction with natural airflow over the car to rapidly disperse water droplets at speeds in excess of 20 mph, resulting in vastly improved visibility and driving comfort, even under extreme weather conditions.
Indeed, independent academic studies have shown that similar treatments allow drivers to recognise objects up to one second earlier in wet-weather conditions. At 60 mph, this one second advantage can reduce stopping distances by up to 30 m, making driving safer for everyone on the road. Providing that the treated surfaces were 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 composite coating that forms a hydrophobic (water hating) barrier layer on automotive glass. It achieves this by laying down a thin layer of high-tech composite materials and reactive compounds that harden to form a fully transparent microfilm 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, or are blown off by airflow when driving speeds rise above 20 mph.
In addition, 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). Nanolex Urban Glass Sealant therefore 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 freezing conditions de-icing is more quickly achieved.
Nanolex Urban Glass Sealant should be applied 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. To achieve the quoted durability and performance benefits associated with Nanolex Urban Glass Sealant, it is necessary to properly clean the surfaces to be treated in advance. To do this, use Nanolex Glass Polish to initially cut away any stubbornly bonded surface contaminants and then immediately before applying the sealant use Nanolex EX to remove any lingering traces of residual grease and grime (put simply, the cleaner the glass is before the coating is applied, the longer the protective microfilm will last).
Before applying the coating, shake the bottle vigorously to ensure that the contents are fully mixed. 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 a minimum of 5 minutes before being buffed off with a Nanolex Microfibre Buffing Towel, so we recommend treating several windows at a time. The coating must then be allowed to cure for a minimum of 2 hours before being exposed to the elements (please note that you should avoid washing the car for a minimum of 72 hours following application).
