Paint Teflon coat for Black x5

I am not sure how good is a paint sealant and which is a good one. Need help and some estimates on these for my black x5. If any one can explain how it helps to protect the paint. Thanks in advance.

FWIW:

"A 1989 article in Professional Carwashing & Detailing Magazine "The truth about Teflon" quotes a G.R. Ansul of Dupont's Car Care products, Speciality Products Division. "The addition of a Teflon" flouropolymer resin does nothing to enhance the properties in car waxes, and we have not seen data from other people that supports this position. " Ansul also notes that, "unless Teflon is applied at 700 degrees F., it is not a viable ingredient, and is 100 percent useless in protecting the paint's finish, (Source: Grisantin, Stephen, " The Truth About Teflon"'
