One Piece Design - Prevents ice and snow build-up through the elimination of exposed metal components.
Eliminates Lift - The low profile one piece design eliminates wind lift and blade chatter.
Silicone Rubber - Maintains a sharp, clean edge and offers better resistance to all enviorments (Ozone, Temperature Extremes).
The PIAA Si-Tech (Silicone Technology) Flat Wiper Blade is an all-season, durable wiper blade that incorporates PIAA's patented silicone rubber. The key to the PIAA Si-Tech's performance is its frameless design that creates more pressure points across the entire length of the blade for streak-free wiping and greatly reduced ice and snow build-up.
The wiper design and blade compound ensure even greater visibility by coating the windshield with silicone to promote continuous water beading in inclement weather. Water beads up into droplets at low speeds that are easily removed by ordinary wiping. And at higher speeds, wind pressure pushes the water off the windshield, often without even requiring wiper use. The silicone coating also reduces drag and eliminates annoying and inefficient chattering and squeaking, regardless of the shape of the windshield, to provide greater comfort for both driver and passenger. And the best part: the PIAA Si-Tech Flat Wiper Blades reapply the silicone coating every time the wipers are used.
PIAA wiper blades maintain a sharp, clean edge and offer better resistance to all climates (heat, ozone, ultra-violet) - clearly outperforming the industry standard rubber blade.
In order to accommodate a wide range of wiper attachment methods, the PIAA Si-Tech wiper comes complete with two wiper arm adapters. Simply select the correct adapter for your vehicle and attach as shown.
The side tech wipers perform as advertised. The rain water does collect as droplets on the windshield. The wipers are quiet and leave no streaks on the glass. My only negative about them, is the way they hook onto the metal arms. It is not as sturdy as the OEM wipers (Ford F 150). I think it needs a locking mechanism for extra assurance. Haven't had one fly off at me, but just not feeling they are locked in, despite pushing them in the hook till they clicked.
I purchased 2 PIAA 22" Silicone wipers for my '06 Monte Carlo SS. Needed Tech Support for a question. Jamieson and Allen were both extremely helpful and my Monte's wipers never looked better. Thanks, PIAA!
These wiper blades work like they are suppose to, unlike the blades that you can buy off the shelf at just about any auto parts store. Yes, they are more expensive, but they do the job correctly. Now let's see how long they last.
This wiper is excellent and has given me no problems, And it's so quiet, unlike Ford's wiper, whether the Ford wiper is new or broken in.
