Why use Gtechniq G1 ClearVision Smart Glass?
Unlike regular rain repellent coatings that adhere to the surface of the glass using relatively weak physical bonds, G1 uses a chemical bond which gives G1 unrivalled durability.
G1 ClearVision Smart Glass is extremely durable, the hydrophobic function improves wet weather visibility helping to improve safety and eye strain. It also makes removing contaminants from the glass such as ice, bugs and tree sap much easier.
G1 will only work on glass substrates and so, it will not work on modern headlight lenses which are made from polycarbonate. For these you will need to use G5 Water Repellent for Glass and Perspex.
Choose the 15ml bottle for windscreens only, but the 100ml bottle if looking to use on all of your car’s glass.
G1 is supplied with G2 Residue Remover.
How Does it Work?
Gtechniq G1 ClearVision Smart Glass works by creating an extremely high contact angle between the glass surface and water. This superhydrophobic surface means that the water droplets struggle to cling to the windscreen and roll off, or are blown off as air passes over the vehicle. This enhances the performance of your windscreen wipers, or negates the need to use them at all!
Additionally, Gtechniq G1 ClearVision Smart Glass can increase windscreen chip resistance by increasing what is known as the coefficient of friction. This means, as an object comes in contact with the windscreen at speed, it is more likely to be deflected than to damage the glass.
