Protect your investment
On the surface, glass appears perfectly smooth, clear and transparent. But, at a microscopic level, the surface of glass is jagged, with peaks and valleys, similar to sandpaper. This irregular surface can damage and affect your windshield in two ways:
- Windshield damage: Peaks and valleys catch road debris causing pitting, chipping and cracking. In addition, water collects in the valleys, depositing dirt, minerals and other material that can stain and scratch your windshield.
- Reduced vision: Peaks create prisms where light is redirected and refracted, causing vision distortion and glare. The valleys also cause water to collect and cling to the glass, reducing wet-weather visibility.
How does it work? Zurich Shield windshield protection is manufactured by DFI Inc., an innovator in protective coatings for glass. Their patented nanotechnology, Diamon-Fusion, improves and protects the surface of your windshield by molecular fusion with glass to form a water repellent barrier, applied in a two step process:
- A chemical fills in the microscopic peaks and valleys.
- The bonding substrate is then capped and sealed, enhancing surface smoothness.
As a result, there are far less peaks and valleys to catch road debris, distort vision, and create glare. The glass becomes smoother, resulting in a stronger and clearer windshield.
