Nanolex Trim Rejuvenator

Nanolex Trim Rejuvenator

What is it?
A trim dressing/sealant for non and lightly faded trim and plastic.

What makes it stand out compared to other trim dressings?
As its a dressing and sealant in one, much like Gtechniq C4 and CarPro Cquartz DLUX, one application should last significantly longer than regular spray on and gel dressings.

I tested it on my engine cover, and did a small comparison with 2 other dressings, but will let the pictures talk for them self.
The top right part of the engine cover is left untreated, so you can see the effect better.

And a close up, the camera had a hard time capturing the difference in the darkness of the plastic.

My thoughts about it:
When i first saw the small bottle, i thought that i would use it all on my engine cover, but in fact i only used 10-12 drops.
The plastic really darkened instantly, without being to shiny, and best of all its completely non sticky.

First of i cleaned the engine cover with APC and then did a quick wipe over with IPA, to insure a good bonding.
I applied it using a cotton pad, but i found out it actually soaked up alot of the product, and tried a suede cloth instead, and the product went on alot easier and a few drops should be enough to do a trim list. After i did half the engine cover i buffed it off, but i dont think it even would be needed on textured trim at all.
The 2 other products i compared it against was CarPro Cquartz DLUX and PERL(Diluted 1-3), where the first is a sealant and the second is a dressing.
Nanolex Trim, darkened the plastic the most, and added a tiny bit
shine to the plastic, looks just like the cover did from new, where the DLUX and PERL didnt darken it so much.
Dlux and PERL both needed buffing after application, and DLUX is a bit to shiny to my likings, and PERL feels sticky.

Plusses:
Cheap, compared to other Trim Sealants
Really easy to apply.
A little goes a long way.
Has a subtle sweet smell, but nothing you would ever notice because of the tiny amount used.

Minuses:
Not suited for those who want a shiney look to their trim.

I really like it, might even degrade my Perl for tyres only and Dlux for wheels.
It just ticks all the boxes I wanted from a trim dressing.

Same for me, all the cars we deliver at work looks like they have had 10 bottles of Megs Endurance poured in the engine compartment, and I hate it :-D even the fan belt looks shiny.

Yep, i did some additinal tests with it on some badly faded plastics, and will do a update later about how it lasts and such.

Thanks for the useful review Morten =D>
May be one to try if it gives that 'back to new' look rather than a 'just been cleaned' look

It certainly does bring the plastic back to New look, the untreated part of the engine cover was just cleaned.
