A press release has been issued explaining that do-it-yourselfers can now buy applications of Aquapel glass treatment from The Tire Rack, an automotive products distributor, either online at www.tirerack.com/aquapel or by calling 866/353-5082 toll free in the United States.
Recently made available direct to consumers, Aquapel glass treatment causes rain to bead and shed off windshield and other automotive glass. It can be applied in as little as five minutes and last up to six months, according to Paul Recrosio, Aquapel business manager, PPG Industries. It also reduces night glare and makes it easier to scrape off ice, snow, dirt and bugs, Recrosio said in the release.
A University of Michigan Transportation Research Institute study found as much as a 25 percent improvement in a driver's response time after a car windshield is coated with glass treatment, from four seconds to three. At 40 mph that represents 58 feet, the release stated.
"Aquapel glass treatment is a natural fit for The Tire Rack, because our reputation is built on providing products that enhance driver and vehicle performance, thus helping customers drive safer," said Matt Edmonds, vice president marketing, The Tire Rack in the release. "In our strict product qualification tests, Aquapel glass treatment truly did help drivers see clearer."
According to the release, Recrosio said, "We're very excited consumers and car-care professionals can now get Aquapel glass treatment through The Tire Rack's online and telephone-based ordering system. It's easy and fast, and The Tire Rack's great service and reliability ensure customer satisfaction."
