Keeping your windscreen spotlessly clean could cut one second off your braking response in an emergency – enough to prevent a smash from occurring. This finding was made by the University of Michigan Transportation Research Institute when testing a special type of glass treatment developed by specialist cleansing products maker Rain‑X® that helps to stop dirt and water sticking to windscreens. It may appear obvious that a dirty windscreen can prevent the driver from seeing an emergency situation quickly enough to respond, but this is the first time the theory has been tested and quantified.

For the over 40 years, Rain‑X® has provided drivers with products to help them outsmart the elements. With the Original Glass Treatment™ water beading technology, Anti-fog and Glass Cleaners, Rain‑X® leads the automotive aftermarket in glass care.

In recent years, the Rain‑X® portfolio has expanded to include other types of car care products such as Car Washes, Washer Fluid and Headlight Restoration Kits. All Rain‑X® products are designed to help keep our customers a confident step ahead of Mother Nature on the road.
