Lexol Vinylex Protectant, 1/2 L. Vinylex gently cleans, conditions, protects and renews vinyl, rubber and plastic without leaving an excessively greasy look or feel. DH-60 Ultraviolet Sunscreen, one of the strongest on the market, protects against fading, cracking or drying caused by age, environmental pollution and the suns ultraviolet rays. Apply with a Lexol Applicator Sponge or soft, 100% cotton cloth, allow to penetrate the vinyl for 10-15 minutes and then buff off the excess with another soft, 100% cotton cloth. Leaves a satin finish without greasiness and does not contain raw silicone oil. The lowest sheen product we have found.

I used this product on my BMW leatherette interior and rubber surfaces onthe exterior. Also works with plastic under the hood too! Used with a lint free micro fiber cloth and brush (for seats) you can get superior results for little money. I also used it detailing my wife's woefully neglected SAAB right before a trade-in estimate and made the card look worth much more than a previous estiamte. This stuff is a must own if you want your car looking great. And one more good thing is that I keep it in my car's trunk all summer and the heat doesn't appear to spoil the Vinylex's effectiveness.

I wish I would've taken before and after pics but I wasn't the least bit optimistic when I started my "project" with this product. We have a convertible that had sat, in inoperable condition, for the better part of two years. It has a cloth top and gets extremely dusty even when the top and windows are up. I used Vinylex on the dash and all vinyl and plastic parts and wow, just wow - the results were so much better than expected and it was so quick. Next project was the convertible boot that affixes to the car while the top is down to give it a finished appearance. I am ashamed to admit that we had left this poor boot hanging in an area that gets rust overspray from a nearby air conditioner, again for two straight years. This thing started out black and after two years of neglect was a mixture of dirt and rust color, with one end being almost solid dirt and the other being almost solid rust. I fully expected to have to discard but thought I'd try the Vinylex - Just In Case. Two applications within minutes of each other restored this thing to like new condition!?! We honestly could not believe it. I now use this for bonded leather furniture, aka vinyl ottomans, in the living room and family room, too, and of course - it works beautifully. In my opinion this is nothing short of a miracle product. I loathe writing reviews (I guess because I usually don't have anything new to offer) but depend on them heavily when making purchases so I felt compelled to share my experience with this Amazing Stuff! =) If you need a vinyl cleaner, try this - you won't be sorry!

Vinylex seems to give a finish about the same as Armor All "Low Gloss". I've used it on vinyl trim, the dashboard and rubber door gaskets. It's not too shiny for my taste and does not leave any significant amount of oily residue, however, I do wipe it with a dry cloth after letting it dry completely.. It does seem to last longer than Armor All. Have no idea about the validity of the UV protection claims.

As others have noted, the spray nozzle is not very good. Spray "droplets" range from a fine mist to large drops, all at the same time. It's much safer to spray it on a piece of cloth.

I am a professional detailer, and have used Lexol products for quite some time. Vinylex is superior, as all Lexol products are.

I've been using this product for years, and it's the best out there. It is low gloss, and a little goes a LONG way. I use this on more than just my car. Basically anything made of plastic that I need to condition and protect, I apply this product to. In my opinion, the other major competitor that "armors everything" doesn't live up to the hype, and in fact can in some cases cause you more headaches than save you. Plus, it's gone up in price quite a bit. Pay a little more and buy a better product. The Lexol leather conditioner is also an excellent product, made by the same company. I will add that I prefer the spray bottles to the wipes for both.

I'd consider myself a novice in the personal car care crowd. When I was ready to sell my 13 year old Honda CRV and I poured through amazon and other website for the best stuff to detail my car, to get the best resale price, and I came across this product. I took the online advice of others and I can't say I'm more pleased. Using this product on my honda made it look only a few years old and brought the plastic and vinyl pieces back to life. On the interior, the dash was super slick but no oily. I even used it on the exterior of the car. The black plastic bumpers had faded to a light gray, but when I applied the vinylex, they went back to black. Anyways, I did get top dollar for my honda using vinylex and other car car products. I hope this review can help others.

I've been looking for a spray on bumper protection for my new Toyota Prius car. I had wanted something that would protect my bumper and vinyl strip from fading as well as from the dust and dirt that comes from driving on dirt roads. Vinylex has a UV protection factor built in the material. It does go on very easy and a little does goes a long way. Only time will tell as of the effectiveness of this spray.

After testing Lexol Vinylex, 303 Aerospace protectant, and Liquid Glass Vinyl, rubber and leather protectant, I've concluded that Vinylex sits right in the middle for protection. On new vinyl it provided 3 months of protection and I find this to be very good. The Liquid Glass however, provides and even better 4 months while the 303 was lagging at 4-6 weeks.

Regarding the silicone oil usage on vinyl's and rubbers. I think it has been well established that virgin long chain silicone oil and any petroleum distillate product is not well suited for vinyl and rubber treatment. Beyond that there is minimal evidence to support the proposed fact that all silicones are bad for vinyl's and rubbers. There are many molecular types of silicone and some of them are designed to penetrate the outer protective layer of the PVC to lubricate the inner substructure. These short chain silicones are good for PVC, not bad. Other silicones only protect the outside layer and never penetrate to the inner layers. From what I've determined the long chain silicone oil in Armorall actually attracts the short chain essential oil molecules already in the inner PVC layers and pulls them out, therefore degrading the entire PVC structure. The silicone blends in Vinylex and Liquid Glass actually enhance and replace the used up essential oils in the inner PVC layers while at the same time providing additional protection for the outside layer. Therefore these particular silicone blends are good for vinyl and rubber.

Since the Liquid Glass is so hard to find I wouldn't hesitate at using Vinylex as the number one.
