I was coincidentally watching a video of a car's paint being restored and this was the final product they used after polishing.

I googled the stuff and it apparently does a great job. It really depends on the person. There are pros and cons of the product compared to wax. It seems like if you know what you're doing the pros definitely out weight the cons.

Never heard of this brand, how does it compare to the established products like
CarPro CQuartz, Optimum Opti-coat, etc.

There's a lot of products out their that claim to be ceramic coatings. If you check Amazon, there's several china brands that are like $10. I'd be tempted to try one out on my wife's older car.

I never looked into this but is it pretty much like an improved version of sealant?

I've seen a lot of people put ceramic coat over poor paint, results are nasty. Ceramic coat is thin hard layer that's used AFTER a good paint correction. A lot of people just think their run of the mill vehicle will look glossy after a coat of ceramic which is not true.

I've ceramic coated my wheels with Gyeon Q2 rim, it's super easy. Basically buff on buff off, and they provide you with the cloth in the kit. I used less than half the bottle (2 coats face, 1 coat barrel) and more than a year later brake dust hoses right off.

New set of rims is even better because you don't have to wash and claybar the wheels first

I ordered it online from Detailer's Domain, looks like they don't carry any Gyeon products anymore though.

Looks like Amazon Canada is sold out, but there is still stock on Amazon US if you're ok with picking up in Pt Roberts

I've used 9H stuff on my ML. works well so far. I got it from amazon and it came from turkey... I bought some from China as well but they were so cheap I didn't use them yet.
