Hey all

I have perspex windows on my boat am just wondering if people have used rainx to repel salt water from them or is there a marine water repellent that is used cheers

Vuplex is far better in my opinion

Available from most good marine dealers in a blue and orange spray can.  It is extensively used in the aviation industry for small aircraft windows which are Perspex. Lasts much longer than rainx

I have tried Vuplex and all the other name brand types out there and have found good old mr sheen to perform as well if not better than all the others and at a fraction of the cost . Started off using it on my clears and now use it on Perspex windscreen as well

If you want the best Enduroshield

BUT screen cleaning and preparation essential before applying.  Commercially applied is far superior
