Trico® Exact Fit™ replacement blades make it easy to restore your vehicle to original factory quality. Made from the finest quality natural rubber and high-strength steel, they offer long-lasting performance. The American Optometric Association reports that 90 percent of your driving decisions are based on visibility. TRICO® wants drivers to know just how critical it is to change wiper blades regularly.
Wiper blades have a tough day, even when it’s not raining. They sit on a hot windshield, out in the sun with its degrading UV radiation. They have to wipe off not only water, but also road grit, corrosive washer fluid and salt water from road salt. While the natural rubber from which blades are made provides the most flexible and resilient edge for wiping across glass, it eventually dries out and deteriorates. The rubber can become warped by heat or made brittle by cold. Modern windshields are curved, forcing the blade arm to articulate every swipe. A worn-out blade not only loses its sharp, rain-squeegeeing edge, it gets hard and won’t sweep the glass properly. Conventional blades have multiple joints between the superstructure and the wiping element that can corrode and freeze, further restricting mobility, and leaving you with streaks.
The most sure-fire cure is a blade replacement, and it’s the simplest one, too. TRICO® blades are easy to install and fit your arms in exactly the same fashion as the OEM blades.
A collision on a rainy night in 1917 between a National Roadster and a bicycle (which fortunately didn’t injure either the cyclist or the Roadster) spawned an industry. Soon, the Tri-Continental Corporation introduced the first commercial windshield wiper. TRICO®, now a subsidiary of cooling system giant Stant, is one of the world’s leading manufacturers of windshield wiper blades, wiper systems and refills, with a large portion of both the aftermarket and OEM business.
