Wiper technology evolves with the Silecio Hblade

The Silencio HBladeValeo, one of the leading automotive component suppliers for the independent aftermarket, has launched its Silencio® HBlade®, an innovative new wiper blade combining elements of both conventional and Flat Blade technology.

The Silencio® HBlade®, with its distinctive design, is becoming a particularly popular choice for vehicle manufacturers whose models are based on Asian and Japanese platforms, although this new technology is also becoming present with European manufacturers.

The Silencio® HBlade® has the bow structure of a conventional blade, combined with a covering structure similar to the look of a Flat Blade and is made using high-quality rubber blade with a specific coating to provide a smooth and silent wipe.  The spoiler that covers the entire length of the blade creates an anti-wind-lift shape, reducing air resistance to enhance the technology’s overall aerodynamic performance.

This specific design is now available in 4 Silencio® Performance kits that cover 24 different vehicle models (for Mazda 6, Toyota Auris, Vauxhall Insignia andPeugeot 4007, for example). The Silencio HBlade® range will be extended with the latest vehicles that are equipped with HBlade® technology in OE during 2013.

The HBlade® completes the Silencio® portfolio of OE technologies, meaning you can now offer a like for like replacement across all technologies – conventional, Flat Blade and hybrid blade.
