Older exterior plastic trims that have started to look tired and faded can be difficult to rescue. Why? Because age-related weathering strips out oils and damages trim materials permanently. Traditional trim dressings only mask such problems, as opposed to fixing them. The trick then, is to choose a product that will not only mask the signs of age, but that will also last for as long as possible, reducing the need for routine care. Nanolex Trim Rejuvenator uses nanotechnology to deliver an expected lifespan of more than three months per application (up to six is not out of the question with this product). It also does a great job of darkening down fading and masking other signs of age, and imparts an as-new satin finish that will not run or streak when it gets wet.
Nanolex Trim Rejuvenator is a highly reactive nanotechnology coating that restores and protects exterior plastic trims. Developed in Germany, it uses a solvent-based carrier solution to lay down a hydrophobic (water-hating) micro-film that instantly bonds to bare plastic surfaces at the molecular level. This micro-film not only rejuvenates the colour and lustre of weathered plastics, but also causes them to repel water vigorously. This not only results in impressive beading, but also encourages a degree of self-cleaning (akin to the Lotus Effect in nature). Furthermore, due to the strength of the chemical bond it forms, the coating is also highly resistant to detergents and pressure washing, giving it a typical life expectancy of three to six months per application.
Nanolex Trim Rejuvenator should be applied in a cool, dry, well-ventilated space out of direct sunlight. To protect your skin, we recommend wearing PB Nitrile Gloves during the application process. To achieve the quoted durability and performance benefits associated with Nanolex Trim Rejuvenator, it is necessary to properly clean the surfaces to be treated in advance. To do this, wash and dry them first and then immediately before applying the sealant use Nanolex EX to remove any lingering traces of residual grease and grime (put simply, the cleaner the trims are before the coating is applied, the longer the protective micro-film will last).
Before applying the coating, shake the bottle vigorously to ensure that the contents are fully mixed. Next, lightly wet a Nanolex Cotton Applicator Pad with product and wipe it evenly on to the surfaces to be treated, using light pressure and overlapping strokes. The resulting film should be left to dry for no longer than a minute before being buffed off with a Nanolex Microfibre Buffing Towel, so we recommend treating small sections at a time. Under normal conditions the coating will cure fully within a few minutes of application, so it can be exposed to the elements straight away (although it is wise to avoid washing the car for 72 hours following application).
