Scheibenversiegelung

Eine gute Scheibenversiegelung macht das Benutzen der Scheibenwischer ab einer gewissen Geschwindigkeit überflüssig. Doch längst nicht jede Scheibenversiegelung ist auch für die Windschutzscheibe empfehlenswert. 

Welche Nanoversiegelung für die Autoscheibe wirklich empfehlenswert ist, erfährst du wenn du weiter ließt...

Nano Scheibenversiegelung

Der ADAC rät von Scheibenversiegelungen für die Windschutzscheibe ab.

Und damit hat der ADAC recht. Zumindest fast. Denn es gibt 2 Kategorien von Scheibenversiegelungen.

1. Scheibenversiegelungen basierend auf Silikon:

Und genau diese Scheibenversiegelungen meint der ADAC. Denn Diese verursachen oft Schlieren. Dadurch kann es bei Gegenverkehr zu erhöhter Blendwirkung kommen. Hier kann es schnell gefährlich werden. Aus diesem Grund raten wir dir ebenfalls davon ab, diese Scheibenversiegelungen auf der Windschutzscheibe anzuwenden. Für Seiten- und Heckscheiben sind sie aber zu gebrauchen.

2. Scheibenversiegelungen ohne Silikon:

Hier hat der ADAC unrecht. Wobei gesagt werden muss, dass sie solche hochwertigen Scheibenversiegelungen auch nicht getestet haben. Bei diesen Scheibenversiegelungen kommt es zu keiner Schlierenbildung und auch eine erhöhte Blendwirkung ist ausgeschlossen.

Denn diese Nanoversiegelungen gehen eine chemische Bindung mit der Scheibe ein, dadurch sind sie sehr widerstandsfähig, halten lange und blenden nicht. Auch fangen die Scheibenwischer nicht an zu stottern, wie es oftmals bei den silikonhaltigen Versiegelungen der Fall ist.

Windschutzscheibe versiegeln nur mit Scheibenversiegelungen ohne Silikon

Deshalb bitte für die Windschutzscheibe nur die Scheibenversiegelungen von Gtechniq oder Nanolex verwenden.

There are several ways of drying your car. Drying the car with a microfiber towel is one of them. It is a very common one for detailers, because microfiber towels are easy to maintain and re-use, and they minimize the risk of swirls.

Why dry with a microfiber towel

When drying a car, you can do this indirect or direct. Indirect means that you dry the surface without actually touching it (like using an air blowing device). Direct means that you dry the surface by touching it (like wiping it with a microfiber towel).
By drying the surface with a microfiber towel, you minimize the risk of swirls and marring, and you remove the water safely. Water isn’t just made out of water alone. Tapwater especially contains calcium and magnesium, together with several other minerals and trace-elements. When the water starts to evaporate, these minerals and trace-elements stay behind. When you are working on a hot summers day, the sunlight can actually have a little magnifying glass effect within the waterdrop. This can add to the process that etches the minerals into the paint. Making them very hard to remove, and literally damaging your paint on a very small level.

The types of drying

There can be several minor differences, but in essence, there are 2 ways of drying your car with a microfiber towel.

  1. The swipe and drag technique

    This technique is the most common one. The microfiber towel is either pulled over the surface or swiped. This is an effective way to dry the car fairly quick, but there is a very small risk that by dragging the towel over the surface, you create miniature swirls. There is a long lasting discussion between the supporters of this technique and the other technique.

  2. The drop and soak technique

    This technique is not as common, but has a strong group of supporters. The microfiber towel is gently laid down on the surface, allowing it to soak up the water simply by laying on top of it. When the water is absorbed, the towel is simply picked up and laid down on another surface. The advantage is that you don’t move the towel which minimizes the risk of swirls or marring. But it could take more time and perhaps even more different towels.

Both techniques have there pros and cons. The situation might be the answer to what technique is most fitting.

Pros and cons of using a (MF) towel to dry the car

Pros:

  • It is a very effective way because microfiber drying towels can absorb a lot of water
  • The risk of marring and swirls is minimized
  • Microfiber towels will have little to no effects on very soft surfaces or very soft paint
  • A good microfiber drying towel is not only suited for drying, but can also be used to buff off polish, wax, sealant or to clean interior with if needed

Cons:

  • Microfiber towels are not cheap, the good ones are a bit expensive
  • Although they are not difficult to maintain, they still need a bit of care
  • They are not as common to come by as an old t-shirt or blouse

Things to take into account

There aren’t many steps. There are 2 main techniques described above that pretty much sum it all up.
However, there are a few things you need to remember when using a microfiber towel:

  • When a towel is dropped on the floor, put it aside and don’t use it until it has been washed. There can be very small amount of dust, dirt, sand and other particles in the towel. Using it will spread those particles over your paint, and because of the sharp sand it can even scratch the surface.
  • Never wash a towel with fabric softener! The oils in this product will clog up the microscopic fibers. This will have a very negative impact on the performance that is almost impossible to undo.
  • Putting the towel in the dryer after washing can help clean out any dust or lint
  • As with many things, a good towel costs good money. The cheap towels are rarely worth the money spent

Unsere Top Empfehlung unter den Scheibenversiegelungen ist das Gtechniq G1.

Diese Nano Scheibenversiegelung ist schichtbar. Mit den 15ml Inhalt kann man entweder 3 Windschutzscheiben behandeln oder auf 1 Windschutzscheibe 3 Schichten auftragen.

Gtechniq C1 Scheibenversiegelung

Entscheidet man sich dafür 3 Schichten aufzutragen, wird die volle Standzeit von 2 Jahren bzw. 48.000km erreicht. Diese ist natürlich von der Beanspruchung der Scheibe abhängig.

Bereits ab ca. 60km/h beginnt der Abperleffekt einzutreten. Bei noch höheren Geschwindigkeiten ganz auf den Scheibenwischer komplett verzichtet werden. Und das ganz ohne Blendwirkung oder ähnliches.

Zusätzlich wird auch noch die Reinigung der Scheibe vereinfacht. Auch freikratzen der Scheibe im Winter wird leichter, da die Eisschicht durch die extrem Glatte Oberfläche nicht mehr so gut haften kann.

Um auch die letzten Rückstände von der Scheibe zu entfernen und eine optimale Grundlage zu schaffen, befindet sich im Lieferumfang noch der Gtechniq Residue Remover G2. 

Vorteile

Abperlen von Wasser ab 60km/h

Verbessert Fahrsicherheit

Bis zu 2 Jahre/48.000 km haltbar

Schichtbar

Erleichtert Reinigung

Spitzen Preisleistungsverhältnis

Nachteile

Keine

Ebenfalls sehr empfehlenswert ist das Nanolex Glasversiegelungsset Ultra.

Auch hier hat man garantiert keine Probleme mit Schlieren oder gar Blendwirkung. Die Standzeit fällt mit etwa 20.000 km auch sehr gut aus. An die des C1 kommt es aber nicht ganz ran, das liegt aber vorallem daran, dass es nicht schichtbar ist.

Nanolex Glasversiegelungsset Ultra

Das umfangreiche Set reicht für mindestens 3 Windschutzscheiben aus. Neben einer Glaspolitur, Auftragpads, einem Reiniger und der Versiegelung selbst befinden sich im Set noch Nitril Handschuhe zum Arbeitsschutz, ein Microfasertuch und eine Anleitung.

Je nach Aerodynamik des Fahrzeugs setzt auch hier der Abperleffekt bereits ab ca. 60km/h ein.

Haltbarkeit ca. 20.000 km

In einer praktischen Flügelampulle wird die Ombrello Scheibenversiegelung geliefert. Durch zusammendrücken der Flügel zerbricht die Ampulle im inneren und der Filz wird benetzt.

Jetzt muss man die Scheibenversiegelung nur noch auf die gründlich gereinigte Scheibe auftragen.

Ombrello Nano Scheibenversiegelung

Die Standzeit beträgt hier ca. 1/2 Jahr, was für eine so einfach aufzutragende Scheibenversiegelung schon sehr ordentlich ist. Leider reicht eine Ampulle nur für ca. 2qm, sodass bereits nach einer Windschutzscheibe das Produkt verbraucht ist. 

Vorteile

Gute Haltbarkeit

Vermindert Zufrieren im Winter

Einfache Anwendung

Guter Abperleffekt

Nachteile

Schlierenbildung möglich

Eventuell Blendwirkung

Nur für 1 Windschutzscheibe

Soft99 Glaco Ultra Scheibenversiegelung

Ebenfalls mit einem Filzpad trägt man die Nanoversiegelung für die Autoscheibe von Soft99 auf.

Im Gegensatz zum Ombrello kann man aber mehr als nur eine Scheibe damit behandeln. Bereits ab 45km/h ist der Abperleffekt zu bemerken. Der Hersteller gibt die Standzeit mit bis zu einem Jahr an.

Soft99 Glaco Ultra Scheibenversiegelung

Ein ganzes Jahr schafft die Versiegelung wohl nur unter optimalsten Bedingungen, in der Realität liegt die Standzeit deutlich darunter. Lässt die Wirkung nach kann man dank der einfachen Anwendung aber schnell nachlegen.

Sehr günstig ist die bekannte Scheibenversiegelung Rain-X. 

Auch hiermit lässt sich ein wasserabweisender Effekt erzielen. Die Standzeit liegt allerdings nur bei wenigen Wochen. Dafür hat man gleich 200ml von dem Produkt. Immer wieder berichten Kunden von Schlierenbildung und erhöhter Blendwirkung.

Rain X Regenabweiser

Daher ist unsere Empfehlung diese Scheibenversiegelung nur auf Seitenfenstern anzuwenden. 

Vorteile

Günstig

Guter Abperleffekt

Nachteile

Schlierenbildung möglich

Eventuell Blendwirkung

Fazit: Eine Scheibenversiegelung fürs Auto kann eine gute Sache sein. Wer dabei aber auf billig Produkte unter 20€ zurückgreift wird vermutlich enttäuscht.

Diese günstigen Produkte basieren alle auf Silikon. Damit erreicht man zwar ein sehr gutes Abperlverhalten, aber es kann zu Schlierenbildung. Noch viel schlimmer ist die damit zusammenhängende Blendwirkung bei Gegenverkehr. 

Wer also darüber nachdenkt seine Windschutzscheibe zu versiegeln, sollte auf die von uns empfohlenen Produkte von Nanolex oder Gtechniq zurückgreifen. Diese sind garantiert blend- und schlierenfrei. 

Will man nur die Seitenscheiben versiegeln, kann man aber durchaus auf ein billig Produkt zurückgreifen.
