Trico Products recently introduced the new Teflon SHIELD wiper blade – Engineered by TRICO, the first aftermarket blade line in North America using hybrid beam wiper technology.
 
Available now, the Teflon SHIELD blade offers superior durability and performance through Dual-Shield Technology, which features a wiping element infused with Teflon surface protector and a reinforced high-strength polymer shell. This unique crossover hybrid design helps the Teflon SHIELD blade reduce friction and protect against cracking.
 
“For more than a decade, Trico Products has been the exclusive maker of wiper blades with Teflon coatings technology, and today’s drivers seek the added confidence provided by a blade that supplies better and more consistent visibility despite the weather conditions,” said Kevin O’Dowd, Global Director of Marketing, Corporate Branding and Strategy for Trico Products. “We have changed the game with the Teflon SHIELD blade by using a wiper treated with Teflon surface protector element and an aerodynamic, durable and stylish polymer shell to improve beam blade performance.”
 
The Teflon SHIELD blade is engineered to conform to today’s highly curved windshields with a spring steel-beam structure that supports an infinite number of pressure points across the entire wiping surface. The turbine air foil shell is molded from a high-strength polymer that protects the blade, while its hinged design provides the flexibility needed to maintain optimum contact pressure.
 
“DuPont shares Trico Products’ commitment to an ongoing investment in research and development that continually pushes the envelope in technology,” said Tom Perich, Segment Manager − Teflon Brand Licensing. “The Teflon SHIELD wiper blade uses our most advanced Teflon coatings formula to ensure premium performance, and drivers will clearly see the difference Teflon brand makes.”
 
The Teflon SHIELD blade is now available in 16- to 28-inch lengths, providing coverage for 9mm Hook, 9×4 Hook, and Side Lock Arms. Trico Products also supplies a complete selection of merchandisers to help retailers and service technicians promote the value of advanced wiper technology.
 
For more than 90 years, Trico Products has been one of the world’s largest manufacturers of wiper blade products and systems with major operations in Asia, Australia, North America, South America and the European Union.
