Thread: Rainex on Scope and Binos

  1. #1

    Rainex on Scope and Binos

    Although factory lens coatings and butler creeks on scopes do a good job, on a really cr4p day on the hill the lenses inevitably get wet on scope and binos, I always carry a square of chamois to give the occasional wipe but wondered whether Rainex might be used Works perfectly on car windscreen

    Thoughts?? will it damage the lens coating etc

    Have used Rainex to stop scopes misting for quite a while - makes them easier to clean too.

    Been using it for around a year now, on a D760, S&B and several Nightforces. I've had no adverse effects, the external misting up with NV drives me nuts.

    Been using Rainex for donkey yonks probably about 20+ years never had any problems with my scopes or binos
    A must have in my opinion for wet and also very cold days stops the glass from fogging and the water just beads and runs off

    I've got some of their anti fog stuff. Not sure whether to use it or not as it says don't use on plastics, painted, treated or coated surfaces.
    Mi don't fancy taking any coatings off my S+B scopes

    243 Varmint, I've used this exact one it comes in a black bottle rather than the yellow one above. They both state not to be used on plastics etc, I've had no issues and have used it on all the items I stated above.
    To be honest I feel uneasy about recommending this in case there any issues, but can only say as I've found. As obviously the manufacturers have had an issue with something they have tested on?
