Ecolab Introduces First Complete Surface



ST. PAUL, Minn. -- The Ecolab Vehicle Care Division has just introduced Rain-X Online Protectant, the carwash industry's first complete surface protectant, designed to deliver increased shine, water repellency and more durable protection to a vehicle's glass, chrome, trim and paint, Businesswire reported.

Rain-X Online Protectant features Ecolab's most advanced polymer and protectant technology, including a special polymer formulation engineered to create a water repellant layer that chemically bonds to all exterior vehicle surfaces, then cures to the surfaces to provide better water beading and sheeting, longer lasting results and a safer driving experience.

According to Dr. Altony Miralles, principal chemist at Ecolab, Rain-X Online Protectant's effect can be measured by the increased contact angle of water droplets on the vehicle's surface.

"Increasing the contact angle means that the water beads up completely and sheets off easily to produce a dryer car," Miralles said. "And because it bonds and cures to the surface, the protection and performance last longer."

Designed to work on multiple vehicle surfaces, including glass, paint, trim and chrome, Rain-X Online Protectant's bright yellow color, berry fragrance and medium foam profile will add to a positive customer carwash experience.

"What's most exciting about this launch," said Ecolab Vehicle Care Director of Marketing, John Mark Reimann, "is the public's recognition of the Rain-X brand. Combined with the product's high shine, water repelling properties and multi-surface performance, we're confident that Rain-X Online Protectant will help carwash operators pull new customers into their carwash and keep them coming back."
