RainX vs Nufinish on windshield
 
Lexus IS350 (Wife) RainX vs Toyota Tundra (Me). NuFinish

Wipers cleaned on both with denatured alcohol. Both garaged. Similar mileage and weather/car washes (weekly).

Wipers making noise and things starting to stick on Lexus. Iíll let you know when Tundra wipers start acting up.

Started Jan 15th.

Is the NuFinish their wax or do they make a windshield treatment now?

I'll use RainX sometimes, It's ok..

But works for me is Chemical Guys Jet Seal.
I use it on my paint and glass.
Lasts longer than RainX.

They still just make the sealant. It seems to work great on headlights and windshields. Strange isnít it?

Sure is! Any other brand car wax causing windows to fog in my experience.

I just use the rain-x washer solvent. Seems to work for me.

Same here. I buy the orange flavor "anti-freezing" & use it year 'round.

The only time I get wiper chatter is when pine sap hits the glass, have to razor that off.

I've found little difference between waxing ht windshield with Carnuba wax vs Rain X. I like the wax a little better because once you buff it, there is no haze to evaporate.

I quit using RainX for the chatter reason. After a few minutes of having the wipers on, they would start to skip across the window. Ive just been making a quick pass with Powerlock across the windshield and side windows. No more chatter, and using Bosch Icons

Iím still on the oem wipers, but Iíve been looking at Bosch.
Carnuba wore off to quickly for me on the Lexus. NuFinish must be petroleum based on something.. itís still going strong.

EXACTLY....

I use it in everything I've got. I even shoot some on the window when its raining hard to make it repel better.....

Last set I bought were Bosch. They worked so much better....

The OEM wipers have gone to crap the last couple of years. So have Valeo....

I use Aquapel. It lasts for at least a year. No chatter, and it does an awesome job of repelling water! The only time I really need to use my wipers is when the rain is really light, like a mist. When it rains hard, the water just flies off the windshield.:thumbsup:

That Nufinish isnt a wax but a polymer sealant. If it works nicely, it might be the winner since it is the only one that is reasonably priced, and you can get it anywhere. The other sealants mentioned on this thread are around $35 for 16 oz. Thats pretty pricey if you are only wanting to treat your windshield.

Tierhog 03-06-2018 11:51 AM

Yep. It goes on headlights too!
