To hide imperfections, create a short term gloss factor, that is about it.

<i>GLAZE: A glaze usually denotes a superfine friction type of cleaning agent, usually with essential emollients and lubricating oils and may even contain some mild chemical cleaners. Glazes will usually remove mild swirl marks, scratches, refresh the paint with oils and smooth out the finish.</i>

Once again I have to ask, how can you add oils to a plastic??
The information is very outdated. This information was for the old nitrocellous lacquers, you can not feed oils to a polyurethane enamel clearcoat.
You put them on top, you can create an optical allusion, but you can not "feed oils into plastic substrates in order to nurish them."
If you do not understand what today's paints are there is a lot of information from PPG and others on the website www.autoint.com under the Tech Tips section and the Magazine Articles section.<ul><li><a href="http://www.autoint.com">http://www.autoint.com</a</li></ul>

...you might want to talk to Larry @ Car Care Specialties regarding this info.

Larry might want to call me. I am the one that gives the seminars to the International Carwash and Detailers Association, trains Ford, Chrysler, Mazda, Hyundai and other manufacturers field service people on these issues.
Manufacturers many of their private label car care chemicals, etc.
If he really wants to know and is up on the industry, he knows or has heard of me.

according to what you're saying, it seems like 3m imperial hand glaze will not do anything but temporarily cover up some of the imperfections. is this true?
also, since you seem to understand how these layers interact: can i seal in a glaze with a wax?
