How to Know the Different Types of Silicone Wiper Blades

November 04 , 2021

There are three main types of silicone car wiper blades , similar to rubber blades .

These windshield wipers are classified according to design or frame construction, and you can quickly identify which type a wiper blade belongs to with a quick glance at the exterior aesthetics of the wiper .

Traditional Silicone Wiper Blades

If you’ve been driving for more than two decades , then the type of wiper blade you’ve been accustomed to is the conventional bracket-type wiper blades .

These wipers have steel frame construction with three or four blade claws that provide the pressure points to tightly attach the blade to the windshield. Also called frame-type wiper blades , they are more efficient in handling mudded windscreens and are perfect for off-road vehicles regularly exposed to heavy dirt that turns to mud during rain .

Despite the old-fashioned style and design, conventional blades remain popular today and are commonly used by most automakers for their standard models .

Hybrid Silicone Wiper Blades

Hybrid wipers combine the best of two worlds with metal brackets to provide sturdier support added with aerodynamic beam cover for an extra layer of protection during bad weathers and from road contaminants during the daily drives.

They are generally more expensive compared to the other types . Just like beam blades , hybrid wipers are common in luxury cars and superior models.

Beam Silicone Wiper Blades

In contrast to the traditional bracket-type wipers , another type is the flat beam blades made of rigid silicone rubber. Since they have no metal claws , beam blades are more flexible and easily adhere to the curvature of the windshield , thereby resulting in more efficient wipes.

Beam-type wipers started in the early 2000s and were first introduced in luxury cars . Since then , luxury brands and most automakers use beam wiper blades for their high-end models due to more expensive costs .

Beam wipers are better at handling all weather conditions , even in snow time during winter.
