Default Flight Shield Ceramic Coating?

Has anyone here heard of this product/process? I have some friends back in the Chicago area who have seen cars that have had this process applied to them, and they are suitably impressed. One guy they know had been applying this on aircraft for some time, and he has now struck out on his own doing it on cars, and he is booked up for a couple months.

Almost sounds like the stuff called "Polyglycoat" that was sold heavily in the 70's-80's.

I got a place I get some wax and they do window tinting and detailing. I was there last week and they do a process called cilajet which is a ceramic coating. I think it starts at 900 and goes up to $1,200. The guy said it is really tough, easy to keep your car, clean bugs fall right off. Amazing product and will last a long time. They had three cars in the showroom and they really did have a nice shine to them

What happens if the car needs paint work?
Is there a way to take the stuff off so paint will stick?

This process is out there in many forms/products. Don't see the need on a rarely used, restored musclecar. Daily drivers, outside in bad weather may benefit

From what my friends have told me, the stuff only lasts about 2 years before its effectiveness wears off, so I would think this is not a permanent coating that could cause problems in case of paint work being required. One of my friends who is enthusiastic about the product owns a paint & body repair business, so I don't think he would be promoting the product if it could potentially cause him problems down the road.

BTW, great memory on the 'polyglycoat', Rick.....that's a term I had forgotten all about!
