If your commute is mostly spent crawling along in heavy traffic in an urban setting, then Nanolex Urban Glass Sealant is the glass sealant for you. Like most glass sealants, it works by laying down a film of functional ingredients (including, in this case, a high-tech composite material) that cures 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.

How To Use
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).
