Effect on E-Vehicles
The CCM Windscreen Coating Technology on E-Vehicles
When driving in winter conditions most E vehicle drivers suffer from Range Anxiety. Do I shut down my car heater? Do I run on side lights? Even using the car radio becomes an issue. It is all going to drain the batteries but it gets worse.
It is winter and you have to drive from London to Manchester, Berlin to Bremen or New York to Washington. The windscreen wipers will be drawing 400 watts for the next 5 hours and this means you have been tipped beyond the battery range because of needing to constantly use your windscreen wipers.
The solution is simple.
Enjoy better vision, and reduce the drain on batteries by using the CCM TUV tested windscreen coating.
Case Study: Coating of a Power Boat
The main impact on the performance of the coating is associated with
A. Quality of application.
B. The amount of abrasion which the screen is subjected to.
if a car drives 20,000km around the US during a month-long road trip, in the early summer, it is possible that the windscreen wipers will have been used for only a matter of minutes. After 20,000km the coating will have experienced very little degradation (unless driving closely behind vehicles when transiting a desert) and it will retain strong performance.
If the same road trip is made in the autumn, when there is significantly more light rain, it is possible that the windscreen wipers will have been used on many occasions. This windscreen wiper action will start to abrade the surface. Light, misty rain does not immediately run off the coated windscreen at low speeds and so the windscreen wiper will be used
If the same road trip is made in the winter and let us assume that the rain is torrential, it is highly probable that the windscreen wipers will only need to have been used on rare occasions as heavy / torrential rain runs off the windscreen very rapidly.
Having noted the above one application of the windscreen coating should last for approximately 6 months +/- under normal usage conditions.
Application of the coating:
Wipe the windscreen with the coating cloth (No "2"). Work quickly and methodically ensuring full coverage of the screen. The cloth will dry within approximately 90 seconds. Vertical and Horizontal wiping actions are recommended.
Use suitable disposable gloves when cleaning and coating. A fingerprint can be 100 times thicker than the coating!
After Drying: You will see that there is a haze on the surface. This is completely normal. Please use a clean and dry microfibre cloth to buff the surface. The buffing action may take up to 5 minutes.
Maintenance: The coating is very resistant to soiling but micro contamination from vehicle exhausts will sit on the surface. Over time it will be necessary to remove this contamination. Wash the surface with Biosativa or alcohol and the coating will become rejuvenated.
