SONAX XTREME ANTIFREEZE & CLEAR VIEW dazzles in a VOX „auto mobil“ and KÜS test
„A low price is not always a good thing, when it comes to antifreeze it pays to choose a superior product,“ advises the editorial staff of the „VOX“ TV channel’s „auto mobil“ series in its 19th January broadcast. They are referring to SONAX XTREME ANTIFREEZE & CLEAR VIEW, which performed best in a comparison test of ready to use mixtures conducted by the experts of „auto mobil“. The SONAX product was compared in practical tests with a brand name winter windscreen cleaner as well as an „auto mobil“ own mixture. The products were tested in cooperation with the vehicle monitoring organisation (KÜS). To this end, the products were tested on three identical vehicles in a cold chamber at temperatures of around minus 20 degrees Celsius. After the vehicle windscreens were sprayed with test dirt from the laboratory, the test objective was to establish with which product would the windscreen washer system provide clear vision fastest. In addition the cleaners were tested for their „handling“ and for their „freeze protection“. The result: SONAX XTREME ANTIFREEZE & CLEAR VIEW cleaned the windscreen in the shortest time and performed best in all categories. In contrast, the tested brand name concentrate of another brand supplier faltered in the freeze protection category – at minus 20 degrees Celsius the product became too viscous to attain an optimum cleaning effect. The DIY mixture made from ethyl alcohol failed miserably.
