Autogloss Rinse Protection

Quick question, does Autogloss Rinse actually 'protect' the cars paintwork to a certain degree? I'm not trying to compare it to HD Wax or Aqua Wax in terms of durability, but would I be right in saying that Autogloss Rinse applied after a weekly wash would have some protective benefit/properties?

Autoglym said in that thread that it's not designed to replace traditional forms of LSPs, which I understand. But my question is more about whether the product actually does protect the paintwork to some extent... Autoglym's website does actually say under their key benefits that it 'protects paintwork'. I'm trying to find out to what degree

It does protect the paintwork to a certain extent. It does leave a hydrophobic film on the paintwork. That removal of standing water on the vehicle is a benefit. The degree or protection is minimal. The product will not withstand a wash with a pH neutral shampoo. It isn't designed to do that, so it doesn't have to. We're not going to claim it is durable etc if it isn't.

If you are looking a spray on LSP check out Rapid Aqua Wax / Express Wax. It takes marginally more work to apply, but the durability is there and it is longer lasting too.
