H2GO & Heated Windscreen

Quick query folks, I've been using H2GO for a while now and rate it highly

Recently I've noticed that there seems to be little to no longevity on the Mrs's Mini, the only thing I can think of is the use of the heated screen in the colder weather is dropping off the performance?

Anyone seen this before?

Cheers

John

I dont think heated screen has anything to do with it...Every car has vents that blow on the glass and it doesnt affect anything.

What I think is causing the drop in longevity are the use of wipers. Ask your Mrs if she uses the wipers any less than she did before the coating. If she sais NO than you have an answer (mechanical degredation from the use of wipers). You should also note that cars are different in shape and different airflow may perhaps affect durability.

I noticed this on my mother-in-laws car. 2 layers of H2go can last up to 5 month on my car whereas it cant last more than a month on hers. She excessively uses wipers (and screen wash), I dont.

Hope it helps.

No, in error the first generation spray bottle worked inefficiently in that it spayed more products out that has lasted some considerable time. I rate this product so ready for another application.

It does not seem too challenging to apply , just cleaned plus clayed.

Good luck John Tht.

As others have alluded to. I have used it in conjunction with the heated screen and found no issues with it. Applied the Gtechniq smart screen and again haven't encountered any issues.

Has she been squirting it with de-icer or what about the screen wash. They'll both damage it pretty quickly

Thanks folks, found it weird myself too, think its probably her use of wipers more than me

I normally prep every now and again with some IPA but generally I can get away with top-ups every now and again.

I still think its probably one of the better windscreen coatings about based on its performance and ease of use

Cheers

I've found the only thing that reduces longevity quickly is road salt in my experience.
