Expand Your Knowledge: The History of Wiper Blades
Wiper blades are manufactured by companies worldwide, most using some variation of the same process. The first use of rubber for tires is believed to have occurred in 100 B.C., with later use of it for wiper sticks possibly occurring during the first century A.D..
The first wiper blades were made of wood and leather and were meant to be attached to a broomstick. The first aluminium blades were made in the 1930s, although they weren't patented until the late 1940s.
The first wiper rods were made of wood and leather and attached to a broomstick. By 1865, James Starley had patented the first mechanical means of wiping rain from carriage windows. The device was called the "windshield wiper." It was essentially a form of squeegee that would be attached to the arm of an oil lamp--and was available just in time for consumers to enjoy them during America's Gilded Age (1865–1910).
