Windscreen cleaner test station
Test bench for a clear view
A clear view contributes to road safety. A windscreen cleaner must therefore be able to reliably remove dirt, lubricant films and rubber abrasion of the wipers. At the same time, it should care for the wiper blades and keep them smooth. Caramba therefore regularly tests its own windscreen cleaners in parallel with competitor products.
A windscreen with wiper and washing system is installed in the standardised test system with refrigerating chamber. The windscreen is prepared with test dirt – a stubborn mix of hot wax, silicone, soot and oil.
A camera records the cleaning process from the driver’s perspective and the effect is analysed electronically. In addition, Caramba tests the paint and plastic compatibility of the cleaner. The active ingredients for the care of the wiper blades and nozzles are also tested.
