BRASS WINDSHIELDS FOR MACHINE. WHAT ARE HAPPEN?

Auto wipers are divided into 3 types: it is frame, frameless and hybrid. Frame – an ordinary type of windshield brushes, where the cleaning tape is attached through several rocker arms. Plus – low cost, simplicity and sophistication of the structure. Cons – poor cleaning of the windshield at high speed due to poor aerodynamics of brushes; no elements for clamping to the windshield; resource of these products is low. The replacement came frameless brushes that better cope with cleaning the windshield of the car at high speed. Motorists love them for their beautiful appearance, but they have other advantages, such as: low aerodynamic drag and low weight, because of which they less burden the drive of the car wiper. Their disadvantage is the higher cost. Another type of brushes – hybrid ones – are similar in design to conventional frame wipers, but in a closed, streamlined housing. Therefore, aerodynamics is better than conventional frame models, although the basis is the same. The disadvantage of one is the higher price. There are also winter brushes, which are a kind of frame wipers, where all the work items are hidden inside the case of a thin rubber tube, so that they are better protected from frosting than others. Recommended for use in winter. Purchase wipers better in specialized stores. And no matter which manufacturers you trust, foreign or domestic, as long as they are proven. For example, Champion or Bosch wipers always receive positive feedback from owners. Particularly popular were frameless wipers Bosch Aero Twin, which costs about 1,500 rubles. This kind of money is not a pity to spend once a year on good wipers, but fakes often come across. There was a case when Bosch worked for only a couple of months, after which they began to leave divorces. To replace them, Champion brushes were bought, which cost 2 times cheaper and served the entire due date. By the way, you can find silicone gum, which proved to be the best. Longer than usual they do not serve, but the work is done qualitatively. Also, in addition to buying janitors, it is advisable to purchase an anti-windshield remedy. Then the brushes will work less often and will last longer. HOW TO CARE? Even high-quality and expensive wipers can quickly fail, because this element is capricious and gentle. For example, you can spoil a brush by forcing it to scrape off ice or work on dry glass. Sand and ice are bad companions for the “janitors”. Use wipers only on wet glass, do not force them to work “on dry”. To rarely change the wipers, you need to wash them more often and periodically degrease. All sorts of solvents for these purposes are not suitable – they only harm. For these purposes, a silicone grease is used, the use of which will come in handy with the arrival of frost. Ice quickly forges the wiper blades, which shed moisture from the warm glass. It will be easy to cope with this misfortune: it is enough to gently inject a silicone fairy tale under the cover before installing the brush. It will displace moisture and will not allow them to freeze. Sometimes in the markets, car owners are offered to buy a chemical modifier for rubber bands, asserting that it returns youth to its brushes. True, no one says that the “brave prowess” condescended to the gum treated with this chemical agent for only a couple of days. After this period, the wipers start working worse than before. If the glass is heavily scratched, visibility will be poor, even if the brushes are completely new. Therefore, many motorists in order to improve visibility do polishing of the windshield. It also has a positive effect on the work of janitors, because on clean glass, they run faster and wear less. COMMENTS Sometimes, when the wipers leave strips on the glass, it is not them or bad gum that is to blame, but the wiper unit and, in particular, the wiper wipers. There are springs in them, which weaken over time and press the brush to the glass less. Therefore, they are poorly cleaned due to poor pressure. I recommend to raise the leash with the janitor, turn the janitor perpendicular to the leash and, like a corkscrew behind the janitor, bend the leash.
