ToughGuard paint protection.. ???? Has anyone tried this product..??

I was wondering if anyone has tried "ToughGuard" and if so, how long it lasts?? The manufacturer claims it will last 5 years.
Cheers

Does it claim to have Teflon? Teflon needs to be baked on at a temperature that would cause your paint to melt.

There aren't really any shortcuts to make your sealant 5 years under normal usage, so I would just find some synthetic to use every six months or so. Sorry!

I am an applicator in New Zealand and have been doing Toughguard nano paint protection for two years. I have learned a lot about the product. I am a panelbeater and also have painted many cars when I was on the floor in a workshop.
I have found the the resin polish 2 pack application works well. Of cause the car need a good cut and polish first as any markes will remain and be trapped under the application.
