I was speaking with my dealer yesterday and he's really hot on a product called Rejex (http://www.corrosionx.com/rejex.html)for boat waxing. He reports that once applied, water spots can be removed with just wiping with a dry cloth.

Anybody have experience with Rejex (http://www.corrosionx.com/rejex.html)?

Don't know anything about the product but did their marketing really think a name sounding like REJECT was the best name for the product?:confused:

I have used it on my boat and trucks for about three years. It gives one the the best shines I have ever seen, good deep rich color. You can use it on glass for easier cleaning. As far as wiping off water spots with a dry towel, well lets say that won't work in Texas with our high in mineral content water. A damp towel does remove water spots pretty easily. It needs to be applied when temps are below 85 and it needs to stay that way for 12 hours. I am getting ready to haul the jeep out to moab tomarrow so it and the front of my truck just got a fresh coat.

I've never seen it. Can you buy it at the local auto parts store??

They say you can buy it at Tru-Valu hardware stores. I note that it's about $12 online for a 16 oz bottle, but shipping is about $8. I'm going to stop at my local Tru-Valu and have them order some if they dont' have it - I'd rather pay 6.5% sales tax.

Is there any Teflon or polymer additive in this?

"RejeX is not meant to be used on porous surfaces, highly oxidized painted surfaces, or to fill fine scratches."

Isnt gelcoat porous?

Rejex works good on car rims to keep brake dust off, but it washes off easily and needs to be reapplied fairly regularly. I don't think it's gonna be any better than a good marine wax for this purpose and I'd be real careful about whether its okay to put this on gelcoat before you did so.

Im no expert, but everything Ive read suggests it is. Are there different gelcoat formulations that may differ in regards to porosity?

I thought the reason gelcoat oxidized was because it is porous. Babe's website claims it is: http://www.babesboats.com/techGelcoat.php

It's porous to the same degree that acrylic paint is porous, or any other polymer surface - that is to say there are pores, which is where oxidation of these polymer surface starts, but it's not porous in the sense that it will leak. I think we'd agree that most boat hull are waterproof. The reason we wax our boat hulls is a) UV protection and b) fill those pores in the gel coat to prevent blistering. Basically, the same reasons we wax our cars because of the (admittedly) porous finish.
