Increase safety while driving a car, windshield cleaners have been tested. Each year around 35,000 on Austria’s road accidents. This is poor visibility among the most common causes of accidents. A high-quality glass cleaner can help mitigate this risk. To verify the performance of window cleaner on the Austrian market, these were subjected now an independent quality check carried out by the magazine all car. Optimum dirt simulation In the SONAX test laboratory in the Bavarian Neuburg ride wind, cold, heat, and perse dirt were simulated in a Chamber specially built under realistic conditions. The cleaning power of the medium was measured via camera eye, scattered light and computer analysis. The test turned four ready-to-middle, three light concentrates, as well as two detergent in tablet form from the Austrian market.
It decided on the following criteria: paint and plastic compatibility, price / performance ratio and the qualities of the cleaner. On one clean disk applied a test of dirt, dried up ten minutes. Then ten wipe cycles showed who really thinks this, what he promises with equal quantities of test cleaner. Parameters such as stray light and dimmable cleaning degree were it analyzes and evaluates by chemists on the spot. To simulate, for example, insect dirt, a standardized mixture of eggs, alcohol was practical conditions and sugar used. Especially when derInsektenverschmutzung the SONAX disc cleaner distanced the rest test field lengths. Some cleaners showed their weaknesses at the material compatibility and caused irreversible cracks, dull spots and swelling in the headlight plastic.
The positive result that the SONAX reached product is all the more gratifying. With an average rating of 1.35 we must over the title of test winner ‘ are happy. The result proves that we are with our research and development work on the right track. The issue of security « represents a crucial cornerstone of our corporate philosophy and here is also in the next few years further investments. SONAX Austria conductor, Johannes Artner 2013 we were confirmed in the first quarter again with an increase of 30% in the range of summer Screenwash in our strategy », would be. Independence in the first place some people may wonder whether a test in the House of a manufacturer can produce neutral results. To ensure this, several producers in a body defined the test, test procedure and the composition of the test dirt in 2005. Also, the test products independently were bought, previously anonymized and tested together with the chemists.
