The Wiper Blade That Lasts Years, Not Months

Driving can be challenging when facing unpredicted weather conditions, but often one has to wonder why companies simply can't seem to make products that last. Is it a shortfall in their technology, or is it rather planned obsolescence. Thankfully this is not a question that consumers need to ask in reference to SilBlade products. The goal at SilBlade is simple, to create quality wiper blade products that don't need constant replacing, but that drivers can count on when they need clarity behind the wheel. This has made the durability of SilBlade products exceptional, with their line of wiper blades consistently lasting for years rather than months. This saves you money, and avoids unnecessary waste in landfills of used products.

SilBlade Technology

All SilBlade wipers use the patented silicone rubber formula wiper squeegee. The SilBlade patented formulation is unaffected by the elements that break down conventional wipers (UV/sunlight), ozone, oil and grime from road spray. This unique formulation is also unaffected by extreme temperatures as low as -80°F and as high as 400°F. The graphite and PTFE nonstick coating in the formulation gives the SilBlade silicone wiper its ability to effortlessly glide smoothly across your windshield. The SilBlade patented formulation leaves an invisible hydrophobic coating (water repellent) within 90 days from the first use. The activated release recharges the hydrophobic layer with every use throughout the life of SilBlade wipers. The result is that your visibility on rainy conditions improves with every wipe.

All I can say is wow... just... wow. I wanted some good replacement windshield wiper blades for the Bosch blades I had (they were about a year and a half old and weren't holding out well). I did my research and decided to look into silicon rubber blades after reading so much about them. I was first going to get the PIAA brand, however the price and five year warranty the Silblades offered changed my mind. I haven't looked back since.

One of the things I hated about my old blades is they ended up making a lot of noise when sliding against the windshield unless there was a decent amount of water pouring down. From the first day I installed these onto my car and that first rain drizzle came down I was sold. The blades are whisper quiet, even with just a little moisture on the glass. You literally won't hear them. Heck, they are quiet even if you have no water on the glass. All you will hear is the motors that turn the blades. My old Bosche blades weren't anywhere near that quiet, even right out of the box.

The Silblades seem to work really well in getting the water off the windshield too. I dare say better than any other blades I have used. Some other blades I had would sometimes leave a thin trail of water still on the glass, but not the Silblades. Everything wipes clean from the blade's path. Also it's true what they say about the silicone in the rubber leaving a protective coating. The rain on your windshield will start to bead just like after waxing your car. I can't say it happened immediately because... well my windshield was waxed the day before I installed the blades. However the beading has lasting much, much longer than it should have from waxing alone.

I live in Houston, TX so I'm love how these blades hold up against the searing heat.

I purchased a set of Silblades for my car and they worked wonderfully for the winter that I purchased them for - definitely better than a set of $5 ones from Kragen. But, the next year they were already streaking and chattering, much against their claim of long lasting goodness.

I attempted to take advantage of their 5 year warranty, but after multiple attempts, have not gotten through. At the time, the US distributor had no form of e-mail contact. I've called several times to find out that the 3rd call later, they close their offices at about 4pm their local time. Even when open, the phone number is not the primary distributor, but the line of the office they seem to be located in. Each time I've left voicemails or a message with someone and none of those calls have been returned.

In summary, the product worked wonderfully for a single season, but does not last throughout their claimed 5 years. They have no customer service line to help those folks who have questions or need to make use of their warranty.

One of the blades I received was defective, did not have any rain until 30 return policy for Amazon was up, called Amazon about warranty they referred me to Silblade web site, called Silblade they stated they DO NOT WARRANT PRODUCT have to go to seller. Thank goodness for Amazon, they stated they do not warrant product it is warranted thru manufacturer, but since it was just past 30 days, they gave me a credit which was used to order another blade, and it is ok. Bottom line if you are purchasing these blades for the 5 year warranty I would not count on it. The blades themselves do a remarkable job clearing the windshield, just don't count on any warranty from Silblade.

Really. I've used the 'premium' blades and I've used the cheapo blades. All of them have done an adequate job but none of them could keep up with the kind of thundershowers which seem to blind you on the freeway worse than the thickest fog. That is, until I put Silblades on. The first time I ran into such a rain, I realized that much of what I had previously thought was "out there" was really right on my windshield, a result of inferior blades that simply could not keep up with the amount of water landing on the windshield. Like inferior tires, all of my previous blades (and yours, I'll bet) had effectively been 'aquaplaning' over my windshield, leaving a layer of water that was all but impossible to see through. It took Silbades to show me that a superior blade could improve the visibility through my windshield in 'blinding' rainstorms by 75% or more. For once I could see more than a blur in front of me as I drove the speed you have to in order to avoid getting rear-ended by other blinded drivers.
