How to protect and maintain your car’s windshield


This type of glass is designed specifically for cars and is built differently in that it does not break like regular glass.

Car glass is also more durable than other types for this reason. You can hear the sound of debris and small stones hitting your glass without causing breaks or cracks. Below we share with you the most important tips on protecting and maintaining your car’s windshield.

Driving habits

Stones and pieces of debris fly from behind the cars in front of you all the time. Therefore, leaving sufficient distance between you and the car in front of you will prevent objects from hitting your car windshield. This advice is not only to protect the windshield, but also to protect you as a driver by giving you more time to interact with the road.

Temperature changes

Your car’s glass expands and compresses as temperature changes. High heat causes windshields to deteriorate over time. Front and side shades don’t give your windshield much protection against the sun’s rays.

Fix breaks and cracks immediately

If not repaired, windshield cracks will slowly expand into large cracks. Small cracks can be easily repaired, but if you ignore them and let them grow, you may need to replace the entire windshield.

Replace your wipers

When your windshield wipers can’t remove all the water, you know it’s time to replace them. Wiper blades do not have a significant impact on the windshield, but when combined with other problems, they will reduce the strength of the glass and make it more susceptible to cracks and breaks.

Avoid using chemicals

Chemicals in glass cleaning products have the ability to remove the protective film from the windshield. Always use authentic and approved cleaning products, or you can make your own cleaning solution, using a mixture of 1 part vinegar to 1 part water (make sure the mixture is rinsed off and there is no residue on the glass when you are finished cleaning)

Glass protection with Nano technology

Nano technology binds the glass surface molecules together to make it more resistant to breakages and cracks and less adhesion to water and rain. The technique is simple and effective as the product is wiped onto the glass in a manner similar to car polishing.

Keeping your windshield in excellent condition is easy and most of the maintenance depends on where you park your car. But with these tips, you will protect your car’s windshield, avoid repairs, and extend the life of your current car’s glass.
