Yes it is! I coated my paint, wheels, glass and the same on my motorcycle. The stuff is truly incredible. There is definitely a bit of a learning curve but my car was the first thing I coated and I only had to fix one spot that cured to quickly from the shop light I had a bit to close to the plastic rear bumper cover. Coating is by far the best thing on the market. Or Car Pro's Reload sealant is a close second.

If anyone has any questions about waterless message me and I will get you sorted out and point you in the right direction if you're looking for anything.

Just FYI, my car has been coated with Car Pro's Cquartz coating now for almost a year and I have almost used only waterless wash exclusively for about 11 months and my paint is still incredible. I do have a few small light scratches but I have zero swirl marks. Waterless is seriously magic. Switching from the foam gun/three bucket method to waterless was a huge culture shock but I would never switch back. At least out here in Kalifornistan

Overkill, I ordered:

Chemical Guys Ecosmart waterless carwash
Optimum No Rinse Wash and Shine
Aero Cosmetics Waterless Carwash

Will try each to see which one of these (Amazon purchases because shipping is crazy $$$ but Amazon prime is free in AK) works best

Just remember that with waterless wash products you want to use a product like Car Pro's Eraser or even just alcohol to wipe the truck down and remove the leftover reside from the waterless wash before you apply waxes, sealants or coatings to make sure the product has the best adhesion to the paint thus giving you the longest lifespan of the product.
