I bought some Rejex recently and had a chance to finally use it. Mainly bought it to see if it "works" at keeping brake dust and dirt off of the wheels (or if it washes off easily).

Here are a couple pics.....before and after.

Rear wheel (the fronts were way worse)

Both wheels washed, before Rejex.

Brake dust?  Results?

I use Meguire's NXT (identical to Rejex) and love it.  I just wipe down the wheels and the dirt and dust just wipes right off!

Meguiar's NXT is nothing like Rejex. Rejex has to be put on within certain temperature range and kept out of the elements for about twelve hours or longer in order for it to cure and bond to the surface. The surface also has to be totally cleaned of any dirt and wax before use. Once it's on, it works for months between applications. Good stuff.

NXT......synthetic polymer protection

Rejex.....synthetic polymer coating

Sounds the same to me. This has been debated many times over on the rennlist board. Very similar products (my apologies for the "exact" comment).

The idea, development, use, results are similar. I have used both and there is no difference. I can buy NXT locally, REJEX you need to mail order.

Rejex applied to the inside and outside of wheels...

Finished result, along with Griot's tire dressing.

Where do you buy either one (or both)? I am doing a brake fluid flush and will have the wheels off next week anyway.

By the way, love the way your car levitates in the pictures with no seen supports, would love to do that mod too, or is it just "The Force"?

Cheers

NXT you can buy at Auto Zone, Pep Boys, etc. (log onto the Maguire's website for authorized resellers).

Rejex you have to buy online from a distributor. If I am not mistaken Eric (bumperplugs) sells it.

Dell,

I have to concur with wardhog. I have both Rejex and NXT. NXt is brilliant but IMHO it doesn't come even close with Rejex. NXT however does bring up a deep shine on dark colours but it doesn't have the dust and grime inhibiting protection that Rejex gives. As an example, try using NXT on your windows and you will be sorry....so don't try it ;)

But I always use Rejex on my windows. I have a bottle of NXT on my shelf but only use it for my wife's car now ;)

Good explanation Berny. Thanks for that. However, I have not noticed any difference in the dust inhibitng. Seemed pretty equal to me. The protection maybe difference on windows and as well for long term application.

Never tried the windows, I'll give it a shot. What does it do anyway for the windows?

I just tried Rejex this week and I'm impressed.

I thought it would be hard to get off but it wasn't.

Put a second coat on tonight.

The test now will be durability. How long is that deep shine gonna' last?

Hi Scouser...

I have to say that I disagree with you. NXT and Rejex...side by side on my car and NXT is absolutely dazzeling!!!. Rejex has been around for years NXT is relatively new. IMHO NXT makes Rejex look like Ajax...again, just my opinion.

THX for the input.  I'm really happy with the NXT Jim.  I think it looks fantastic.  I am a big fan of the Maguire's line of products.

I have used McQuires products on my cars for the last 10 years. I think they are probably the only company that really spends the cash developing new products.

The NXT line is just outstanding. In fact, I tossed out the last of my Rejex about 3 weeks ago and I use the NXT line of product on all my cars.

As far as I can tell, NXT outshines, out lasts and out performs Rejex and P21. I think the thing with Rejex is that it has some long time followers in the Porsche world and new products are assumed to be inferior because they work quicker, are easier to use and so on. I think there is this attachment to 'hard work'...i.e., it takes a few hours to get Rejex down right, but NXT on a fully prepared surface takes 45 minutes or less.

The technology is in the bottle...at least that's what my polymer chemist/bio-chemist wife tells me--long chain polymer molecules whatever the heck they are!.

That is hilarious!

Well, I'm not sure how funny it is to a chemist. She is dead serious about chemistry. Everything to her and her family of chemists and chemical engineers is chemistry this and chemistry that.

My first date with her I took her to a Sushi restaurant down in Palo Alto where we used to live. I ordered everything to impress her. All the sushi and sashimi was brought out and set on the table. she said "what is it?". I said, "it's fish". She said, "I know its fish, but it doesn't looked cooked"!...I spent the rest of the evening listening to the chemical compositional factors of toxins and food borne pathogens. I haven't touched sushi since.

Jim...it was your reaction ("whatever the heck they are") to it not her interpretation. I am sure she was totally serious.

And what in the world were you thinking taking a chemist to a sushi bar? YOu were just asking for problems. You should have just cooked dinner for her. Wait scratch that. Unless you have a Kelm in your house, not sure if you would have got the temp hot enough to kill eveything evil off. You can't win in this one.

Well, Dell, I remember the night quite vividly and I certainly wasn't thinking with my brain that evening. :rolleyes:
