Discover the benefits of Valeo Silencio, The AquaBlade™

As the worldwide no.1 in wiper systems, Valeo brings to the Aftermarket its latest O.E. innovation : The AquaBlade™.

Valeo’s new patented wiper technology delivers wiper fluid directly onto the windshield via the wiper blades, rather than via nozzles mounted on the hood.

The windshield is wiped instantly and uniformly, regardless of vehicle speed, allowing for constant and perfect visibility.

Front-facing cameras, which are now more and more common on car windshields, also benefit from an improved field of vision.

Aquablade™ technology by Valeo

Video

AquaBlade™ innovative wiping system for maximized visibility.

The system is made up of a sensor, software and a wiper blade featuring channels that distribute fluid through holes located along its entire length.
Since there are no nozzles, the driver’s visibility is no longer obstructed by jets of cleaning fluid sprayed across a large surface of the windshield, and cleaning quality is preserved at all vehicle and wind speeds.


The AquaBlade, a PACE Awarded Technology, is so precise that it halves the amount of fluid used, reducing the average weight of the system by 2kg, and CO2 emissions.
