There really are two approaches
- Spraying fresh paint onto the car
- Applying some type of product to the existing paint by pouring it out of a bottle or can and spreading it by hand or machine.
Spraying fresh paint is the more complicated and costly approach.
As for applying something on top of the paint this you can certainly do but as for actually creating a layer of product like you think of as it relates to a layer of fresh paint then keep in mind that most car waxes and paint sealants are going to be applied and then wiped off and what you leave behind is a very thin, microscopic layer of protection. It's not going to be like a "layer" like placing a layer of Saran Wrap over the paint where you have a physical layer of "something" on the surface.
Klasse SG if applied thick will create a layer but it won't be clear, so for most people that won't make them happy as you won't be able to see the color of the paint underneath and you'll have to scrape it off. Experiment with about a dime size of product on something smooth, flat and solid and you'll see what I mean.
Optimum Polymer Technologies has an actual polymer paint sealant that does impart a real layer of polymers that are clear and from my testing it's a very durable coating but you can only have it applied by a Professional Detailer that has obtained the product legally from Optimum Polymer Technologies, you cannot purchase it as an enthusiast and apply it yourself.
