Why Trust ACE Labs for Your Wiper Blade Testing?

Initial wipe testing and durability testing give retailers and consumers confidence in the wiper blades they choose. Ace Laboratories is the only accredited lab in Ohio that captures the entire wiper blade testing process on video — and can then share the footage with clients who request it to verify the grade we assign. 

Our depth of experience and breadth of rubber testing capabilities can help meet your goal, whether it’s gaining shelf space in a national retailer, evaluating a newly developed windshield treatment, improving the design of your wiper blades or trying out new blade coatings.
