The key to the PIAA Si-Tech’s performance is its frameless design that creates more pressure points across the entire length of the blade for streak-free wiping. Moreover, the design eliminates snow and ice build-up. It is heat and ozone resistant, and its silicone rubber continually reapplies an active silicone coating on the windshield, assuring streak-free, quiet operation.

The wiper design and blade compound ensure even greater visibility by coating the windshield with silicone to promote continuous water beading in inclement weather. Water beads up into droplets at low speeds that are easily removed by ordinary wiping. And at higher speeds, wind pressure pushes the water off the windshield, often without even requiring wiper use. The silicone coating also reduces drag and eliminates annoying and inefficient chattering and squeaking, regardless of the shape of the windshield, to provide greater comfort for both driver and passenger. And the best part: the PIAA Si-Tech Flat Wiper Blades reapply the silicone coating every time the wipers are used.
PIAA wiper blades maintain a sharp, clean edge and offer better resistance to all climates (heat, ozone, ultra-violet) - clearly outperforming the industry standard rubber blade.
