Valeo unveils Universal Flat Wiper Blades


Valeo, one of the global automotive technology suppliers, has launched Universal Flat Wiper Blades for the Indian market. This advanced wiper technology will be manufactured at Valeo’s Vallam site located near Chennai.

Valeo is a world leader in wiper systems and this product is part of its Universal Flat Blade platform that has a large portfolio of meticulously engineered wiping system products to improve visibility at high speeds and increase road safety.

The product is fast becoming the standard to fit in new vehicles in India, as it is the trend now in Europe, America and China. The blade, which is lightweight in design and with lower drag force to reduce motor torque, imparts uniform pressure all over the windshield and maintains good contact even at high speed limits of over 160 km per hour.

The wiper blade’s design allows it to increase the wiping durability and optimised cleaning at lower noise levels. It is custom-made to endure unique Indian conditions, such as high heat and humidity, as well as severe snowfall during winter.

In addition, the product features a uniquely designed connector for fixing the blade to ensure highest safety. Valeo’s innovative design provides robust and sleek style to the blade in line with the current market trends and meets all needs of the end user.

With installed capacity to manufacture 400,000 units per year at its Vallam plant, Valeo will initially focus on supplying to the original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) and then move to catering to the Indian aftermarket later.

These lightweight solutions are designed not only for increased comfort and safety, but also for reducing CO2 emissions.
