Robert Nilsson, president of A.N. Designs Inc., manufacturer of the UltraWiz®
brand of auto glass blades and cutting knives, has announced the launch
of his newest set of UltraWiz® cold knife blades: the coated, UltraThin
paint protection blades, which he says are ready to cut right from the
Manufactured at company headquarters in Torrington, Conn., Nilsson said
he chose to coat the UltraWiz® UltraThin blades because of their strength
and thinness. After many tests, a resilient, durable coating was selected
for the blades, which Nilsson says protect automotive paint from scratches
and damage, while cutting out windshields with exposed pinchwelds.
"The coating is applied heavily to the backside of the 51C0 Series
paint protection blades where it is needed, but very thin on the inside
surface which goes against the glass. This feature is critical because
of the limited clearance between the glass and pinchweld due to new vehicle
designs," Nilsson explains. "With enough clearance for the blade
between the glass and body, the concerns about scratching and pinchweld
paint damage are reduced. Because the coated shank is narrow, the blade
can easily maneuver around tight radius corners with out damaging paint."
"I kept the coating off the cutting edge to maintain the blade's
sharpness," Nilsson added. "This keeps the pulling force to
a minimum." Nilsson also suggests bit of technical advice; "Always
keep the blades sharp, and use an approved cutting fluid such as water
as a cutting lubricant."
The paint protection blades are available through our current distribution
network. The part numbers for the UltraWiz® Paint Protection Blades
are: 51C1-M - ¾" cut length; 51C2-M - 1" cut length;
51C3-M - 1¼" cut length; 51C4-M - 1½" cut length.
