Wiper Blades Are NOT All Equal

Posted by Everblades on 18th Apr 2014

Choosing a wiper blade for your vehicle is easy, right? WRONG! It is never a good idea to go with the cheapest models available, and this is especially true if you live in a region with an extreme climate. The cheapest option may work for right now, but you will save money and hassle in the long-run by investing in a high quality silicone wiper blade like Everblades heated wiper blades.

Silicone Wiper Blades Last Longer

Studies have shown that standard rubber blades actually have a very short life span. Recommendations about how often you should change your windshield wipers vary greatly, from every 6000 miles to every few months or twice a year (every 6 months). If you choose a cheap rubber blade, you will definitely be replacing them more often than if you invest in a more durable silicone blade, like Everblades wipers.

Silicone lasts up to three times longer than standard rubber blades! How can this be? It’s because rubber blades can get stiff, crack and deteriorate quickly when exposed to the natural elements like sunshine, rain, and of course ice. This doesn’t make much sense when you are looking for wiper blades because they are naturally going to be exposed to these elements – they are on the outside of your vehicle! Silicone, on the other hand, is specifically engineered for extreme weather conditions and is therefore more durable than the common rubber blades.

Silicone Wiper Blades Work Better

Durability is great, but it’s even better when paired with superior performance. Deterioration is often the cause of wiper blade performance issues, but because silicone blades last longer, this is less of a problem. Additionally, right from the start, silicone blades do a better job at keeping your windshield clean.

A silicone wiper blade actually repels water better than the rubber blades. It works in a way similar to windshield treatments. As the silicone blade wipes over your windshield, it leaves a faint residue that helps water to bead together and run off the windshield easier. This means that your silicone wipers don’t have to work as hard to keep your windshield dry, helping them last even longer. It is also found that silicone wiper blades do a better job cleaning mud and dirt off the window, increasing your visibility.
