    You're probably thinking of some kind of Teflon wax. If so, useless.

    Agreed. Teflon cannot actually bond to automotive paint if applied at less than 600 degrees.

    Is it possible to do so? A buddy of mine has a friend in Taiwan who claims to do something like this (apply a Teflon product at high heat) but I'm not sure if it's :bsflag:

    His friend is more than likely full of shit. I don't think applying 600-degree wax to paint will yield good results. Besides, why go through all that hassle when there's outstanding waxes that you can apply at regular temperatures. :confused:

    So they say.....

    Sorry, but Teflon is still a gimmick ingredient. Even if it can bond, I doubt it would do anything to enhance the wax. Seriously, don't you think Meguiars or 3M would be selling a Teflon product if it actually worked?
