    Same as this "Scam":



    Wipe it On, Scratch is Gone!

    "Surface scratches on cars, bikes, boats and appliances instantly disappear...with no sanding or painting.
    Just wipe the spot with this miracle solution, and scratches are gone!
    Contains B. F. Goodrich Carbopol&#174; resin.<<<(Same as Scratch-dini, I'll add)
    Safe on all colors, paints and finishes".

    If one dares to believe, that is.

    Just looked this up.... and it mentions BFGoodrich carbopol.
    Also looked up carbopol and came across this...

    "Carbopol® rheology modifiers are proven exceptional thickeners, suspending agents and stabilizers"

    Carbopol® Polymers - Personal Care - The Lubrizol Corporation

    Not sure if carbopol and carbopol rheology modifiers are the same but if it is, I am assuming this could act as a filler?

    Perhaps someone with a more chemical back ground can chime in.

    I'm honestly interested in this. Would like feedback on this and those clearcoat touch up pens if anyone has used them before.

    I guess the question is, can the clear from those pens be sanded/compounded. Otherwise they look terrible.

    I guess I should not have used the inflammatory word of "scam." Just seemed too good to be true

    If it seems too good to be true, then it probably is.
    I'd like to see those scratches that were repaired under some halogen lights.

    The key may be they refer to them repeatedly as "surface scratches". It looks like this is just another compound to remove the scratches. We do this every day when we do paint correction. If the scratch is through the clearcoat, I don't see any way they can polish that out.
