    Visor "Treatment"

    What's everyone use/recommend for a visor treatment as far as something to help water bead. A guy at work recommended something called "Novex" but I can't find anything like it.

    Rain-X is the only product I use. Nothing fancy just buy a gallon jug of the windshield washer fluid moisten a washcloth and wipe your visor inside and out for a few minutes. use a dry cloth to wipe down when finished. It works by removing micro particles from the surface of the lens and fills small scratches and nicks. These are the things the water clings too.

    From the Rain-X site's FAQ:

    Is Rain‑X® Original Glass Treatment safe to use on plastics, motorcycle windshields, and ATVs?
    No. This product is intended for automotive glass applications.
    Considering it's pretty much denatured alcohol with some other additives, I'd be very cautious about using it on anything that's not glass. It would be a really bad day to get hit by something on your shield and have it shatter because the Rain-X weakened it. YMMV, but I personally wouldn't risk it.

    There's at least one report of a paintballer using it on his goggles, and having it weaken them to the point that an impact shattered them, and he lost (the use of) his eye.

    Cat Crap may do what you're looking for, but AFAIK it's mostly for anti-fog. Would be something to try though.
    This stuff is made specifically for this purpose.

    That is NOT the same product as the windshield washer fluid. I believe it has been stated on here to use the windshield washer fluid. I have never used the original treatment but have been using the windshield washer fluid for at least a decade "even on my eye glasses with poly lenses" with zero detrimental effects.
