I was told of this stuff by another club and they said its really good and after putting it on, basic washes look just waxed everytime. I have never heard of it but seems to be a sealer of sorts.

It's not all that different from NuFinish, really, but Rejex fans hate to hear that. There's really nothing all that special or unusual or different about it. It is a synthetic sealant rather than a typical carnauba wax, so it will last longer than carnauba waxes do.

That said, when it comes to finish care you get out of it what you put into it. I've used waxes costing in excess of $1000 for 8 ounces and, unless the paint was beautifully prepared beforehand, even that won't do anything really fantastic for the paint.

As a matter of fact, once you've done all the prep work to a very high standard (and most people don't have a clue what's really involved in that) then it almost doesn't matter what wax you finish off with since the prep is what really makes the finish. Yes, different waxes can impart slightly different looks to the paint, but it's a very personal preference sort of thing. And the difference in appearance can be very subtle so unless you've got a really good eye it may make very little difference to you. It's sort of like high end audio, wine tasting, etc.

Thanks for the input. I have never been a fan of something semi-permanet in the paint (i know its the clear coat not the paint though). After more research this stuff looks scary to me. It was made for boats, planes and big trucks to protect from soot, hard water lines, etc..It bonds to the paint and requires sanding to fully remove it?

Im fine with waxing mine a few times each year. After getting the paint smooth and shiny beforehand. Just broke out the Meguiars G110 yesterday that i got last year. With this thing, its kinda fun to detail the cars now Very Happy

I've heard of it & bought some - it's like NuFinish, as Mike said - I'm now using Dupont Teflon car wax - lasts the longest and shit (bird) doesn't stick to it.

If that's working for you and you like it, stick with it. But it's not quite what you think it is. Teflon, as such, only works when it's been baked and bonded to a surface - that is straight from Dupont themselves. There is nothing in that product that is even remotely similar to the Teflon on a frying pan. The "non stick" properties you're seeing are indeed polymer created but there are a whole bunch of polymer products on the market that will do this.

But like I said, if you're liking it and using it regularly, there's no real reason to stop doing so. I'd rather everyone find something they like and use it regularly than do nothing to help protect their paint, or at least keep it looking as good as possible.
