    Not a whole lot.. just a little something to protect fresh paint.

    You are going to want to follow it up with a wax for best protection.

    Re: #80 protection

    Remember the 5 step method.
    1. Wash
    2. Remove Above Surface Contaminants
    3. Paint Clean/Polish
    4. Protection (Wax)
    5. Maintain

    #80 is only step 3
    It's a paint cleaner/polish that offers no protection.

    That's why you need to follow it with a wax in step 4

    M80 contains a body shop safe synthetic polymer.

    Well, it will help prevent some water spots/etching if you wash and re-apply often. It wont wash off like a polish would, but we're not talking a full coat of wax to protect from the elements.

    Perhaps it should be asked what it is you are thinking of working on?

    No wax/sealant on fresh paint!

    M80 IS safe, however, on fresh paint.

    After M80, I used M81, Hand Polish as a final step. It's safe both for body shop and fresh paint. It's not nearly as durable as a wax/sealant, but that's not an option on fresh paint.
    See the big picture, enjoy the details
