Awesome stuff.

Was originally used by the military to keep soot from weighing down helicopter rotor blades.

The after pics

1 other thing to mention about Rejex, it doesn't create a ton of white residue/dust like wax does. It took me about 15 minutes to remove it after it was applied about a half hour to buff it out in the morning.


Cloudy day so they don't "pop" as much as I would like but here they are:

I was thinking this is just like any other polymer sealants and it is. From their website:

"RejeX is wiped on, allowed to dry to a haze for approximately 20 minutes, wiped off, then allowed to cure for 12 hours.

Curing is required to allow the monomers (polymer building blocks) that make up RejeX to attach to the surface being treated and to polymerize (crosslink) into a crystal-clear, impervious film. It is very important to allow RejeX to cure for 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 film, preventing the RejeX from achieving it's maximum performance and durability."



NXT 2.0 is actually a cleaner/sealant. It works great but does not last just like any other consumer products. You'll want to use the meg prof line vs the consumer line products. I'm no expert but apply a couple thin even coats of RejeX and a couple thin even coats of a carnauba wax (P21S or similar) and you'll get more than the "pop" you are expecting

thanks, i know the differences, i got the pop i was expecting, i was saying that it wasn't popping in the pics because its a cloudy day. I don't use wax on the x because it sits outside 24x7x365 and doesn't last. The vette gets waxed

Regarding the curing, the only part of the X that I leave the rejex on over night is the hood, it seems to last longer when I do that, but it could be just me hoping Lol after the 12 hours I buff the entire car.

Cool man. I was just wondering why you left the residue on overnight.

Just the hood... it seems to last longer, but as I said, it's all perception by me Re-reading the thread, I see how I worded it badly with using remove/buff without much rhyme/reason, I edited it to make it more clear.

Looks sweet.. so you apply it, let it haze, wipe off haze like any other wax, then buff 12 hours later?
