REJEX WAS NAMED FOR ITS ABILITY TO "REJECT" UV DAMAGE, BUG SPLATS, BIRD POOP, JET EXHAUST AND OTHER COMMON CONTAMINANTS. READ THE CHILLING ACCOUNT OF HOW ONE PILOT CREDITS REJEX FOR REPELLING SOMETHING FAR MORE SERIOUS: ICE!
On October 29, 2011, I made one of my usual departures from Waukegan Airport in Chicago, Illinois. I planned on climbing to 13,000 feet to get on top of a storm cell. En route, I entered the cell at 10,000 feet knowing there would be some ice the cell. Even though I knew my plane would probably pick up a little ice before getting on top, I figured I could safely transition a few thousand feet of altitude inside the cell.
Not the case! I got out on top with more ice than my aircraft could handle!! As soon as I broke free of the cell, my airspeed had dropped to a point where my autopilot disengaged. If that wasn't problem enough, the engine stopped running due to my air intake being clogged with snow, ice and freezing rain. At that point, the aircraft started losing altitude, and I went right back into the freezing rain and snow. Within 30 seconds, I lost total control of the airplane, and it went into a spin. No control input I tried had any effect. Knowing I was heading for the bottom of Lake Michigan, my thoughts were of my wife and how it was gonna feel when I hit.
Then at 7,000 feet, the engine restarted somehow, but I knew I probably still had too much ice on my aircraft. All the sudden, I regained control and was able to engage the autopilot again. Looking out my left side window, while I could still see some ice on the inboard leading edge of the wing, I was stunned to see the rest of the wing was completely clean and free of ice! I used my cell phone to take the attached photographs.
I am 100% convinced that if I didn't have a fresh coat of your RejeX on my wing, I wouldn't be here today telling you this story!
I'm a commercial instrument rated pilot with 2100 hours.
IF YOU'RE IMPRESSED BY "SO SLICK, BUGS WON'T STICK", TRY A DEER!
It's been so dry and nice here in Minnesota, I drove the Vette up to visit family today ... about a 2 hour drive each way.
I start her up this morning, and not 1/2 mile from home out of nowhere a deer is in the middle of the road. I slam on the brakes and just clip him with the front passenger side (headlight and quarter panel..) I yell "Oh F****" and see him doing a Dukes of Hazard butt slide across the front corner, fall down, get up, then run off.
I stop and look, and there's no damage – a little fur stuck in the headlight surround, a little poo (just a light smear), but that's it. Probably the best spot to have a deer hit for sure for structural integrity at least!
I had my brother in law, wife and another friend I visited look to make sure I wasn't missing anything, but they all said it looked shiny and new.. lol
RejeX even rejects animals... sweet!
"One thing everyone has failed to mention is, REJEX has about the highest UV Protection on the market. We have used it on our 96' Buick Park Ave. White of course since day one. The car after 127K still looks brand new. We also started using it on the 07' Arctic White Vette, no doubt has the best shine of any product out there."
"Rejex works great. I have two old 8 cylinder Detroit Diesels and I just rarely if ever get any soot at all on my transom; if and when I do get a trace it comes right off with a hose."
"I use RejeX on all the other cars since they stay out 24/7, and nothing seems to penetrate the RejeX, including bird droppings."

"I am 100% convinced that if I didn't have a fresh coat of your RejeX on my wing, I wouldn't be here today telling you this story!"
"After a month of building up road crud, the side of the [car] treated with RejeX came clean with one swipe of the sponge..."
"On paint in good condition, it eliminates the need for waxes, and one application will last up to 12 months."
"This is pretty cool stuff and I highly recommend it. I'm always amazed when one of the smaller companies trumps the big guys, and this is a classic example. I have no idea how they did it, but Corrosion Technologies has come up with a winner!"
"What makes RejeX stand out from other polishes is not just its ability to keep the boat cleaner longer, but the fact that it works on just about every non-porous surface."
"We were impressed with this product's ability to keep bug splats and exhaust stains from sticking to paint."
"It seals against most stains, requiring just a splash-down with little or no rubbing. A solution like this is worth the retail price."
"Lasts longer than any wax job."
