WINDSHIELD PRO FAQ’S
How does Permashield™ Windshield Pro work?
Permashield™ Windshield Pro is a sophisticated chemical compound that binds to glass on a molecular level creating a smooth surface that repeals water, ice, snow, dust, and grime. The smooth nature of the sealant also reduces night glare and the distracting halo effect you see around lights at night. The compound also strengthens glass, which can protect it from cracks, chips, scratches, and pits.
Will Permashield™ Windshield Pro void my manufacturer’s warranty?
No. Permashield™ Windshield Pro will enhance the performance and life of your windshield. Your entire warranty will still be valid.
Is Permashield™ Windshield Pro different from other products on the market?
Yes. Other products on the market claim to protect your windshield, but they often wash off or wear off with time. Worse, they may even discolor, blister, or peel as they age, reducing your visibility and driving safety! Permashield™ Windshield Pro is truly a unique product, because it does not wear off, wash off, or warp over time. It will last as long as your windshield, giving you greater clarity every day you drive.

Do I need to continue cleaning my glass after applying the product?
