Nothing Sticks but the Shine is the slogan. Good one but what about the product. I have used it a number of times and after sealing my ute with SealX last year I have now covered it with Rejex and it stays cleaner...but back to this car. It is a 2008 Holden Barina. It lives outside and there was nothing left of the wax. Subject matter below:
I had hoped to add video but will have to find a way to do this better.....seems free video programs limit you to one video which does not lend itself to before and after...so here is a pictorial...
I hope you can see that it has a coating on it...the RejeX goes on very easily.
It works on wind screens as well.
Spread it on with a clean cloth and it dries quickly
Put the bottle of Rejex on the roof to a point where it would hold...
Applied the Rejex and wiped it off then did the same
Did the same again near the back ...the reflection of the garage door gives a reference
Mind the thumb in the shot
Below...I think it is fair to say that it provides a good shine..
Without too much of a long winded story here is what you need to know:
- Rejex is very easy to put on.
- It is exceptionally easy to take off. The difference in application between wax and RejeX is easily half the time.
- Rejex goes on the wind screen, windows and acts as a water repellent
- I purposely spread it on a bit of black plastic trim and it wipes off without any work.
All of this adds up to a very fast application
- Rejex provides a great shine/lustre
- Rejex protects the paint from UV rays
- Rejex lasts
- Since it is so slippery it means that cleaning after it has been applied is very easy.
- It is not susceptible to the nonsense swirls that come from wax applications as the effort needed is minimal. Use a clean cloth and very low pressure.
Conclusion. Costs a bit more than wax. Does more than wax. The cost is easily offset by the time saving in applying. It keeps the car clean. ......If I were a rental car operator, motorhome rental company or bus company I would only use Rejex. The savings in manpower for an application is enough. The ongoing saving in manpower to clean the vehicle afterward is also enough but the savings in resale value by having a vehicle that has been protected from UV, Bird Dropping, sap etc is the biggest a great value. Best value however is my daughter's car will be protected.
RejeX has recently been awarded the GSA National Stock Number 8030-01-593-8208 for use on all NATO destroyers and cruisers armed with the AEGIS defense system.
When applied, the RejeX monomers (polymer building blocks) attach to the surface being treated and polymerize (cross-link) into a crystal-clear, flexible, chemically resistant film. It is very important to allow RejeX to cure for 8-12 hours after the haze has been wiped off. If the coating is exposed to contamination such as oil, fuel, soot, water, cleaners, etc. before it has cured, the contaminants may interfere with the structural integrity of the film, affecting its visual characteristics and release properties.
RejeX can be used over existing wax, however, the duration of protection will be reduced as the softer underlying wax degrades comparatively quickly. Waxes can be applied over RejeX, however many of the benefits of RejeX will be negated and the wax finish will not last very long due to adhesion limitations. It should also be noted that many waxes and all polishes contain abrasives, which can strip the thin RejeX film.
