There are many factors that contributes to the deterioration of your windshield wiper blades. These factors include:
- The size and slope of your wind shield. Most cars manufactured these days have one thing in common and that is, its sloped wind shield which is designed for improved aerodynamics. Unlike the “cab-forward” design which excess wind can cause the blades to lose contact with the wind shield especially when the car is on a high speed? But the sloped wind shield are designed to resist lifting which is caused by excess wind.
- Having a tight spring attached is essential for thorough cleaning in order to make way for a clear view of the road.
- Claws refers to the pressure points that holds the blade. This claws enables the blades to have easy sway on the wind shield. It is expected that the blade should have many claws, because the more the claws, the broader the area the pressure of the wiper is spread.
Usually the material used in blade manufacturing is made of natural rubber. But these days, the blades obtainable are manufactured from composite structure with a combination of a soft flexible rubber on the surface to give a. squeegee-like wiping and also a stronger rubber in the body which gives it maximum support and also makes it last longer than the usual blade we have.
Checking with your ASE Certified Technician for expert advise and recommendation is a step you have to take before replacement, especially if you desire a good blade that best suits your car.
