Anyone heard of this expensive stuff? Supposed to be jaw dropping gorgeous on a good paint job and protects the paint for a long time $$$$$

I Googled this product. Sounds very good, and very pricey. I have been using One Grand Blitz Carnauba Wax for the past several years & I am happy with it.

At the end of the day, most of us would not see any difference in gloss or durability between a $1600 tin of some exotic brand of wax, or that of a $10 bottle of 3M's synthetic liquid wax, except the 3M product seems to last longer.

Vastly more marketing than performance.

I just tried this product "Permanon" yesterday. You spray it on, then spray it off with fresh water. We'll see what the outcome is like long term.

I feel like sending them an email. Send me a tin of their product, I will prep the whole car equally (wash, clay,etc.), tape down the middle with painter's tap. Their product on the right, a randomly selected mass market, over the counter product on my other right. If they can't correctly guess whic side is their product I get a year's supply of their expensive product for free.

p.s.
At those prices durability better off the charts.... and should cook me an omelet after punching my old wax in the face.

I've gone back to McGuiars Mirror Glaze. Its not a wax, but boy it sure makes the car look wet for a long time, well, a few weeks at least.
