Types of Windshield Wiper Blades for Audi

So you decided that new blades would be fine. What kind should you get? The traditional frame-like blade that has been in use for decades has a steel superstructure consisting of “claws” that hold the blade, and pivot points and joints that allow the frame to bend and exert even pressure on the blade so that it adapts to the shape of the windshield. This type of blade is suitable for use in the warmer months, but not ideal for winter driving.

The open areas in the latticework of this type of blade can be clogged by ice and snow, preventing the blade from adjusting to the windshield and leading to areas of the windshield that are not wiped off, thus obstructing your vision. Frame-shaped blades also tend to “lift” from the windshield at high speed, which can cause chatter.

audi wiper blades

Wiper blade manufacturers have developed two methods to solve the problem of ice and snow disturbance. Michelin Stealth wiper blades are equipped with covers that cover the steel superstructure to prevent ice and snow. The slim design of the cover also makes the blade more aerodynamic and less likely to lift off the windscreen at high speed. The other process coincides with a shift in wiper technology across the automotive industry – the switch to beam blades. Rain-X, Trico and Bosch are just a few of the wiper blade manufacturers offering this design. The carrier blades have a flat piece of spring steel encased in plastic with the extractor attached at the bottom. There is no frame that can be blocked by ice and snow, and no pivot points, joints or other moving parts that can wear out. The jet blades maintain a uniform pressure over the entire length of the windscreen, ensuring uniform glass contact regardless of the curvature of the windscreen. Jet blades also have a lower, more aerodynamic profile, which is not suitable for wind lifts. Blades are the original equipment of most new vehicles and are becoming increasingly popular.

High quality windscreen washer fluid goes hand in hand with winter wiper blades. No matter how good your windshield wipers are, trying to clean a windshield covered with salt and mud from the road is an exercise in futility without washing liquid. In addition, wipers, which are constantly used to clean a dirty windscreen without liquid, wear out prematurely. Choose a liquid with a freezing temperature that is well below the lowest expected winter temperature. Remember that the wind cold in front of your windshield with your vehicle at speed will be much lower than the ambient temperature, and the last thing you want are frozen washer jets if you need to clean your windshield. Rain-X glass treatment adds water-repellent technology to the windshield for a better view of the vehicle.

Best wipers AUDI 2019

When it comes to choosing the best wiper blades, there are a few things you need to keep in mind. Apart from the obvious fact that you need to be informed about compatibility with your vehicle, you also need to see if the manufacturer is good enough and if the wiper you are looking at has received positive ratings. Believe it or not, quality is something you should look for when buying the best wipers.

Windscreen wiper for AUDI – Buying guide

Now, when it comes to windscreen wipers, they are usually made of flexible metal together with a kind of rubber coating on the top to prevent them from being damaged prematurely. Now these windshield wipers use different types of blades that are used to clean the windshield (and complement your car vacuum cleaner when servicing your vehicle).
Remember that when we talk about blades, we basically mean that we are not talking about steel or metal blades, but that these blades are made of softer material that cannot really damage the windscreen when wiped. To avoid confusion, we will name the most commonly used windshield blades that are built into these wipers. So, without further ado, let’s look.

Rubber blades

Perhaps the most common type of material used in wipes is rubber, the rubber blades are common because they are easy to find and really easy and inexpensive to manufacture. Remember that rubber is often the first to give up because rubber is cheap and can decrease depending on how much it is used.

However, this does not mean that the rubber wiper blades are not bad in any way. In fact, many car manufacturers use rubber wiper blades in their cars. So, make sure you do not just buy another material just because someone told you that rubber blades can easily be ruined.

Just remember that rubber blades are not made for a long life and you are required to change them from time to time, but the good thing is that they are cheap and you can change them from time to time without really suffering a lot of trouble.

Silicone blades

The technology is somewhat advanced and we now have silicone wiper blades, and for those who do not know, silicone wiper blades are much more durable than rubber wiper blades, but at the same time silicone costs slightly more than rubber.

Apart from the cost and durability, it is another important thing to know that silicone wiper blades are not easy to shape and manufacture, so not many wiper manufacturers bring these wipers with them.
At the same time, however, it is good that the companies that introduce these wipers are getting a great critical and commercial response. Unlike rubber, silicone does not really dry at different times of the year, which means that rubber knives are shorter but silicone knives last longer.

The only difference is that the silicone blades are only slightly more expensive, but when you consider that you do not have to change them from time to time, this is totally justified. Another thing to keep in mind is that this type of blade is often used in sports cars and off-road vehicles that are subjected to high forces.

However, the good thing is that most manufacturers have started to make the same blades for standard cars that are also available to the common people.

Coated blades

Coated blades are also the type of windshield blades that are being used more and more, and instead of replacing rubber with another material, they are actually just applied to the rubber to extend its life.
Now, if you are wondering, rubber is coated with materials like Teflon or graphite, and although it looks like a bad idea, it is not. Instead of the rubber touching the surface of the windshield, it is usually the coated material that creates a small resistance that is barely noticeable, if at all.

However, the real advantage of this is that the Teflon or graphite coating significantly increases the overall service life of the rubber. Another great thing here is that even if the rubber dries out at the end, the coating remains just as good and does not wear out as quickly.

Graphite and Teflon coated wiper blades are certainly a bit more expensive, but this approach can save you some money in the long run because you do not have to change the wiper blades over and over again. This is something you should definitely consider.

There are hundreds of wipers on the market, and as a consumer it is up to you to choose. However, making mistakes is easy, and especially if you are going to buy something like a windshield wiper about which most people have no real information.

Well, do not worry; the guide is here to help you choose the best from the best windscreen wipers available on the market. We hope you have a pleasant time choosing the right wiper for your needs, and if you have trouble finding the right wiper yourself, it is fine because you can always contact us and we will help you make the right decision.
