Bosch Aerotwin windshield wiper with advanced wiper rubber profile

Improved wiper rubber lip for outstanding and very long-lasting wiping results

  • Advanced development of the Power Protection Plus (PPP) wiper rubber with patented coating and long-life wiper rubber profile
  • Less abrasion and wear due to a special admixture in the blade’s rubber compound
  • Improved resistance to environmental influences and contamination on the windshield

Karlsruhe – Bosch has further refined and improved its tried-and-tested Aerotwin windshield wiper. With their PPP (Power Protection Plus) wiper rubber technology featuring a patented coating, Bosch Aerotwin windshield wipers have long been synonymous with quiet, outstanding wiping performance – even in extreme weather conditions.

By admixing a special additive to the blade’s rubber compound, Bosch developers have now succeeded in improving the edge of the windshield wiper even further. This makes the long-life wiper rubber profile considerably more resilient to environmental influences. The improved compound formula adds even more abrasion protection to the PPP rubber’s already outstanding resistance to environmental influences, such as UV light and ozone. As such, the redesigned blades truly prove their worth when contamination on the windshield (such as insects, dust, pollen, or ice) has an unfavorable mechanical impact on the rubber blade’s edge. This enables the Bosch Aerotwin to achieve outstanding, long-lasting, and streak-free wiping results thanks to its improved wiper rubber. When compared with conventional blades, Bosch’s quality tests demonstrated that the new wiper rubber lip exhibit less abrasion and thus less wear.

Longer-lasting, excellent wiping results thanks to long-life wiper rubber profile

Furthermore, Aerotwin windshield wipers are equipped with two made-to-measure Evodium spring strips that increase the blade’s contact pressure on the windshield and distribute this pressure evenly along the entire length of the wiper. This firstly helps to achieve such consistent, streak-free wiping results. Secondly, the even contact pressure provided by the Evodium spring strips combines with the blade’s new and improved rubber compound to improve resilience and reduce degradation on the wiper’s edge.
