Bosch adds ICON Wiper Blade to Product Line
Jan. 9, 2015—Robert Bosch LLC announced on Thursday that it has added ClearMax 365 to its Bosch ICON Wiper Blade line, aimed at offering up to 40 percent longer life versus other premium beam blades.
ClearMax 365 is a synthetic rubber compound bonded both physically and chemically with a polymer powder coating. The patented technology from Bosch provides consistent, streak-free visibility year-round and resists damage due to external contaminants like ozone, road debris such as salt and grime, as well as chemicals and waxes.
The curved, “bracketless” design of beam blades applies more uniform pressure across the entire length of the blade ensuring a clean, consistent wipe. The exclusive Bosch ICON tension spring arcing technology creates a fit that is custom-contoured to the curvature of each side of the windshield.
The Bosch ICON with ClearMax 365 program consists of 29 part numbers providing 96 percent coverage of U.S. vehicles in operation, including top lock narrow and side lock narrow OE applications for Volkswagen, BMW and Mercedes-Benz.
