Teflon polish? I think it's a gimmick. Don't bother and spend your money on something that actually works.

Have a look here

YouTube - AGK PTFE NEVER WAX AGAIN --NEVER POLISH YOUR CAR

its supposed to be some sort of new polish that you apply after washing instead of waxing, supposedly lasts a lot longer than wax too

You have to positively charge the surface in order to get Teflon to stick. Just applying like a wax would render it useless. The Teflon won't have any affect on durability at all.

Using the term PTFE in a wax is just a marketting gimmick in my opinion. Adds a touch of hi-tech to the product abit like the term nano.

Noticed recently that "nano-particles" is another marketing term
they've recently started added to car-care products to make them sound
more "scientific".

PTFE can't be applied to a car, the surface needs to be treated to about the melting point of steel, give or take a few degrees.

Nano products are Gtechniq and Nanolex use nano technology and their products actually live up to theit durability claims. Cheaper "nano" products don't work.
