Nissan Ultra-Ever Dry - No More Car Wash?



Can you tell anything special about the paint finish on the picture above.  Probably not, but it's got a layer of special paint that can repel water and oil like no other.

It's called "Ultra-Ever Dry" according to Nissan who is working hard to make the technology production ready in its technical center in Rolle, Switzerland.  The layer of special coating is applied over the conventional paint finish to make the car super-hydrophobic and oleophobic.

Such a technology can be applied to windshield as well as side and rear glasses to make the car much safe and do away with wipers.  Nissan is testing the new technology on Note.  Nissan's Chief Marketing Manager claims, "The Nissan Note has been carefully engineered to take the stress out of customer driving," and "We are committed to addressing everyday problems out customers face and will always consider testing exciting, cutting edge technology like this incredible coating application."

It seems Nissan is particularly interested in paint technology to make their cars looking shiny and newer standing next to their competitors.  The company has developed another unique paint technology in the past called, "Self-healing paint".

Other auto makers and independent firms have been developing similar water repellent technology for years.  If Nissan manages to bring out this new paint to the market, it will definitely give the company a leading edge in marketing their new vehicles.  It will be interesting to see if Nissan is willing to share (for a fee, of course) the technology with other auto makers.

Remove windshield wipers from vehicles come with multiple benefits for the car owners and manufactures.  First of all, you won't have to replace wiper blades every 1-2 years, and it eliminates the distraction caused by moving wipers.  For auto maker, their vehicle will be more aerodynamic and increasing fuel economy.
