Rainex coating on visors?

Recommended Posts


May be a bit of a stupid question but i'm new to the biking world. One thing i've noticed is the lack of visibility in the rain when the visor gets coated in water. I've got the misting thing sorted with a pinlock insert (possibly the best £15 bit of platic you can buy :) ) but wanted to know if Rainex or any similar coating can be put on a visor?

Any tips or suggestions would be appreciated.

Hi Mate

If you use rainex make sure you use the "Plastic Safe" stuff.... The glass only one will make a total mess of your visor.

To get rain off the outside though the best thing you can do is turn your head left to right on a regular basis... The wind will blow the rain off.

Drop into Newbies and say hello mate!!! :D :D

I use Nixwax Visor Proof, however once I've finished it, I will be looking for something that does the job a little better.


Rain·X website

"Can it be used on transparent plastics?

Generally no. The increasing variety of various coatings applied to plastics makes it impossible to pre-test for compatibility under all conditions, and users should satisfy themselves by treating an area outside the normal area of vision. Please note that constant, repetitive use should be avoided due to the possible formation of stress cracking, especially on clear, curved sections."


Sad as the stuff is absolutely fantastic.

Techo, Akey - Do you know how these products compare with the Nixwax Visor Proof?

I've always found that a light coat of fairy liquid works well on the inside, and furniture polish on the outside.. maybe i'm showing my age, but there is something to old housewifes tales...
