Default 5 Star Shine

I've heard on some other forums that there is a new wax out there that is gaining popularity. Its called 5 star shine and uses PTFE molecule to repel dirt and water from the paint surface. Anyone else heard of it? Or know where to get it?

5 star shine website

From technology proven in the aerospace industry comes a paint protection system guaranteed to protect your car's finish for 5 years and keep it incredibly clean. 5 Star Shine's patented two step PPS technology took over a decade to develop and patent (patent # 5,081,171). In fact, 5 Star Shine's PPS technology is the only paint protection system ever awarded a patent by the U.S. Government and used by the US Navy.

You can order on ebay for 50+s&h. The caddy forum didn't positively feed on the product, but I may think about ordering some to do mine and dads truck with. Because both have pristine paint, and we don't want to have to repaint anytime soon.

I've had Ice. This 5 star shine is nothing like Ice. Ice is just a polish that provide maximun shine for about a week.

If you watch the video on the page Hoooo linked to, you'll see that its not a wax, its a molecular compuond that forms a covalent bond with the paint surface and neutrally charges the finish, thus not letting the negatively charged dirt particles magnetically attach themselves to the paint. Its better than anything else out there according to all the consumer ratings and to be issued a patent... well, its definately unique. Id just apply it, an then wax it as needed for additional protection.

the one thing i didnt like was the "never wax your car again" where is the fun in that? i love waxin my truck. and the "remove immediately" part. i wonder what happens if you dont.
i think im gonna get it tho, lol
but im testin it on a different car b4 i attempt it on mine

I just don't want to have to wax the Envoy again.

I'm skeptical about it too. The US navy truly does endorse it though...
