Windshield purity has always played an important role in driving safe on the road, so this is a moment which is worth paying special attention to and taking the necessary measures such as adding a special windshield wiper fluid. It is often replaced by water, but water does not have the cleaning properties which the special fluid can offer. Why is it important and what are its advantages, we will find out in the lines below.
What are the types of windshield wiper fluids?
There are actually two types - winter and summer.
They are distinguished from each other by the freezing point and everything else, like the various colors, are marketing tricks to improve sales. In the summer fluid there is less solution, and in the winter fluid it is more, which increases the temperature reaction ranges.
It is good to dilute each concentrate with water, according to the proportions indicated on the label. In fact, if you dilute it more, the cleaning effect will not be as good. And if you put less water than the indicated portion, the tires of the wipers will begin to corrode due to the density.
The quality concentrate must be:
- safe for health;
- good enough to remove all dirt;
- to not leave behind deposits and stains;
- to not destroy the integrity of the rubber cleaning elements and the cabin paint.
What is the composition of the fluids?
Currently, there are plenty of washer fluids on the market, based on chemical ingredients that allow easy removal of various stains and dirt from the windscreen. The most common are the fluids formulated with ethyl alcohol that facilitates the removal of grease and other stains from the surface.
When buying you should pay attention to the composition and avoid concentrates that contain abrasives, methanol and ammonia. Commonly used, they would disrupt the glass surface and minor scratches will appear on it. Firstly, ammonia is poisonous to humans and secondly, it can damage the rubber elements of the wiper.
