General Performance Questions
What makes a RejeX protected vehicle easier to clean?
RejeX leaves a film coating that’s so non-porous and slick most contaminants can’t penetrate or adhere to it. Certainly the acids in bug splats, bird droppings, tree sap, exhaust deposits, brake dust and other contaminants commonly encountered in normal driving conditions won’t penetrate RejeX. While these contaminants will still get on your car, since they can't stick, cleaning them off is much easier.

Will RejeX help clean my vehicle?
RejeX is not a cleaner. It is important to get your vehicle as clean as possible prior to applying the product. RejeX leaves a durable protective barrier, but it will seal in stains just as effectively as it seals them out.

How long does RejeX last?
Longevity varies depending on various environmental factors, including:

• If RejeX was applied properly per instructions (i.e. a clean, cool surface, etc.)?
• How long was RejeX allowed to cure before the vehicle was returned to service
• Where the vehicle is stored: garaged, hangered, or stored outside
• Frequency of washing and kind (if any) of detergent is used
• The kind of contaminants the vehicle is regularly exposed to

Typically, RejeX lasts between 6 and 9 months, although we have numerous reports from customers who say it lasted well over a year. High abrasion areas, like leading edges of airplane wings, may require more frequent application – perhaps every 3-6 months.

Does RejeX contain UV inhibitors?
RejeX provides better protection against UV deterioration and fading that any wax-type product we're aware of. RejeX is a tough, impermeable polymer film, so even though it does not contain specific UV inhibitor ingredients, just by its more durable nature it’s going to outlast and out-protect wax-ype protective coatings. Waxes have a very limited life span, and as they degrade they lose their ability to protect from environmental damage. That’s why most wax-type products must add UV inhibitors. RejeX seals paint behind a polymer film barrier, which effectively retards the oxidation process. Two coats of RejeX will effectively block 100% of harmful UV.
Recent UV testing on RejeX by two major protective film and vinyl graphic manufacurers showed that RejeX's UV protection qualities are so good, it can increase the life of protective films and vinyl graphics by as much as 50%.

Will RejeX ever "yellow"?
No. This will NEVER (and chemically, can never) happen if cured properly. A rumor about RejeX "yellowing" has been circulated on some of the car forums. We have no idea how it started and can only assume it was by someone with an agenda who couldn't come up with anything negative
to say about the product. The fact is, RejeX will go on diamond clear and remain diamond clear until the eventual day it is removed.

Why can’t RejeX be used on porous, oxidized paint?
RejeX contains no cleaning agents or micro-abrasives, which are contained in most paste waxes and all polishes. RejeX was formulated in this manner in order to be completely safe to use on airplane windshields. As such, it's also completely safe to use on glass, Plexiglas, Eisenglass (the clear vinyl windows used on boat canvas and some convertibles) and all clear coat finishes.

Without these polishing micro-abrasives, RejeX will not compound/polish off oxidized paint. Therefore, it is important to first use a polish to remove the old, weathered paint before applying RejeX. Using RejeX as directed will prevent further weathering of your vehicle's finish.

Are there any special storage considerations?
RejeX uses moisture from the air as the catalyst for it to form a polymer. As such, it is important to store RejeX is a cool, dry place to prevent it from spoiling prematurely. Exposure to high heat (such as storing the product in a hot garage or airplane hanger during the summer) can cause the product to spoil. If stored properly, RejeX has a shelf life of approximately two years.

Application Questions
How much RejeX is needed to treat various sized vehicles?
The RejeX coating is very thin (approximately 1 micron), so a little goes a very long way. A 16 oz. bottle should cover:

• A typical single-engine airplane tip to tail
• A 35’ boat or RV
• 3 regular SUVs or large sedans
• 4 economy or sports cars

The label states that RejeX needs to cure "out of the elements" for twelve hours. For larger vehicles like commercial trucks, RVs and boats that are stored outdoors, how can that be accomplished?
By “out of the elements” we mean to avoid direct sunlight that could heat the application surface excessively. Also, don’t apply RejeX when there’s a probability of imminent rain. It’s important to select a good day and apply RejeX in an area where the vehicle is not likely to get stains on it (tree sap, bird droppings, etc.) until RejeX has had a chance to cure.

What happens if my vehicle gets wet before the 12-hour curing interval is complete?
Moisture absorbed from the air is the catalyst that causes RejeX to polymerize (turn into a polymer). The longer it cures – up to about 12 hours – the more durable the finish. Usually if RejeX gets any curing time at all (even an hour or two), it’s going to outlast most waxes. If the product gets a little wet while it’s curing (e.g. a light sprinkle or morning dew), there’s usually not a problem. Try to avoid heavy rain and lawn sprinklers until RejeX has had at least several hours of curing time.

Can you use RejeX over wax?
While RejeX will certainly work over wax and give you the benefits of enhanced gloss, superior protection for your paint and rejection of stains, it’s better to put RejeX right on top of the paint. Waxes are typically much softer and less durable than RejeX. When RejeX is put on top of wax – even though RejeX will protect and extend the life of the wax – eventually the wax will degrade. When that occurs, the RejeX protection will wash off with the old wax (since in this case RejeX is bonded to the wax rather than directly to the paint). To get full longevity out of the product, use RejeX instead of wax.

Is there any benefit to applying a second coat of RejeX?
Yes, there are some benefits to multiple coats. A second coat will add luster, provide more UV protection and the vehicle will be protected longer. For problem areas like diesel soot on the transom of large boat and black streaks common on RVs and boats that are stored outside, a second application of RejeX is sometimes needed to reject these stains. For the added benefit, it is important to allow RejeX to cure fully between coats.

Does RejeX need to be removed prior to painting? If so, how do I remove RejeX?
Paint doesn't adhere well (or at all as the case may be) to RejeX, and as such will need to be removed if you want to repaint, touch-up rock dings, etc. RejeX will also need to be removed prior to applying protective automotive bras (they won't stick either). The good news is that regular paint prep (sanding or polishing) removes RejeX. I personally use the Finesse-It and Perfect-It polishes by 3M, but any high quality, professional-grade polish (one that contains/leaves no wax residue) should suffice.
RejeX was designed specifically to withstand harsh chemicals (like aircraft exhaust, road salts, acids, etc.), so cleaner chemicals -- even strong solvents -- won't have much, if any, effect. Pretty much any chemical that's aggressive enough to strip RejeX will also strip your paint.

Aviation
Should I just put RejeX on the leading edges of my airplane, or should I treat the whole thing?
Many people start using RejeX on the leading edges of aircraft to make bug removal easier. However, once they see the deep, lustrous finish RejeX leaves, and once they see how much easier it is to apply than waxes, they often go ahead and do the whole vehicle. RejeX is easier to apply than waxes, lasts much longer, makes your airplane easier to clean and provides superior protection. When you factor in the cost of applying wax several times compared to a single RejeX application and the time saved in keeping your vehicles clean, RejeX is also an outstanding value. Why would anyone ever go back to wax?

Is RejeX safe to use on aircraft windshields?
Yes, it's completely safe. In fact, we specifically excluded all polishing compounds and solids from the product so it would be safe and beneficial for aircraft windshields.

Is RejeX safe to use on de-icing boots?
First, we should probably state that Goodyear manufactures a product that they recommend for maintaining their de-ice boots. However, over the years we’ve talked to many pilots who have de-ice boots and hate cleaning bugs off them. So obviously there’s an issue that RejeX can help resolve.

RejeX is safe to use on de-ice boots, but whether you want to use it or not really depends on what shape the boots are in. If the boots are in good shape, the feedback we've received is that RejeX works very well. As boots age, they weather and tend to get porous. On weathered rubber, RejeX “puddles” in the pores and leaves an unattractive white haze. It’s unsightly, but it won't impair the proper functioning of the boots.

How can I tell if my de-icing boots are in good enough condition to use RejeX?
Start applying RejeX to the boots in an inconspicuous spot. If excessive black rubber residue comes off on your application rag, STOP. If the RejeX applies cleanly, you’re in good shape and the RejeX will protect the boots and make them easier to maintain.

Automotive
Will RejeX keep hard water stains and mineral deposits off my car?
Mineral deposits and water spots will be greatly reduced and generally can be wiped right off.

How about brake dust on wheels?
RejeX won't keep brake dust from accumulating over time, but it does make wheels much easier to clean. Usually a good high pressure spray of water is sufficient to knock off brake dust. Plus RejeX leaves a wicked shine on both chrome and alloy wheels.

Marine/Boating
Will RejeX keep hard water stains and mineral deposits off my boat?
Mineral deposits and water spots will be greatly reduced and generally can be wiped right off.

Will RejeX keep diesel exhaust soot off my boat?
It won't keep soot from accumulating over time, but it makes the deposits much lighter and easier to clean. For problem areas like diesel soot, a second application of RejeX is sometimes needed to reject these stains.

Will RejeX keep the black streaks off my boat?
It won't keep them off, but it makes the deposits much lighter and easier to clean. For problem areas like black streaks, a second application of RejeX is sometimes needed to reject these stains.

RV
Is RejeX effective against Love Bugs?
Yes. In fact, RejeX is the only thing we've ever found that's proven effective against these critters.

Is RejeX safe on vinyl graphics? I see it contains petroleum distillates.
Yes, RejeX is completely safe. In fact, testing on RejeX by two major protective film and vinyl graphic manufacurers showed that RejeX's protection qualities are so good, it can increase the life of protective films and vinyl graphics by as much as 50%.

Will RejeX keep the black streaks off my RV?
It won't keep them off, but it makes the deposits much lighter and easier to clean. For problem areas like black streaks, a second application of RejeX is sometimes needed to reject these stains.

Should I just put RejeX on the front of my RV, or should I treat the whole vehicle?
Many people start using RejeX on the front of their RVs to make bug removal easier. However, once they see the deep, lustrous finish RejeX leaves, and once they see how much easier it is to apply than waxes, they often go ahead and do the whole vehicle. RejeX is easier to apply than waxes, lasts much longer, makes vehicles easier to clean and provides superior protection. When you factor in the cost of applying wax several times compared to a single RejeX application and the time saved in keeping your vehicles clean, RejeX is also an outstanding value. Why would anyone ever go back to wax?

Can RejeX be used on the Paint Protection Clear Film products?
Yes. Protective films are very good for protecting paint from road debris and small rocks that can chip paint, but bugs and other road grime are still difficult to clean off these films. What's more, UV and the acids in contaminants such as bug splats will yellow protective films over time. Not only does RejeX makes the cleanup process much easier, it will help prevent protective films from yellowing.
In fact, recent UV testing on RejeX by two major protective film and vinyl graphic manufacurers showed that RejeX's UV protection qualities are so good, it can increase the life of protective films and vinyl graphics by as much as 50%.

If you'd like to put a protective film 'bra' on your vehicle, RejeX will need to be removed first, as these films do not stick to RejeX.
