I have not used this product, but had briefly looked into similar offerings before restoring my gel coat. These products are a little like applying a clear varnish over the top of the gel coat. So you are not removing oxidation, but rather putting a glossy coating over the top of it. My impression is that they work OK at first but can be a pain over time as they are difficult to remove when they begin to fail, which will happen. Plus, since you are not buffing, scratches will remain and if anything will become more obvious due to the gloss.

Consensus was to stick with buffing/polishing and wax for maintenance.

Yes, I used a similar product many years ago on an old boat with faded gelcote. It really does bring back a decent shine, but it is a chemical reaction. It has to be redone every year because eventually the brush marks will appear. The best solution is to either buff or wet sand then buff.
