Magic Pen fills it seals it protects it and makes it disappear.

it blends invisibly with car paintwork

in other words it won't look like you have "written" anything as it will look (almost) just like it did before the scratch unless you look closely (i.e. virtually invisible) so that's why it's"magic" as the scratch disappears! That's what they claim anyway!

agree  Katalin Horváth McClure: Yeah, in other words, it is translucent.//It is precisely see-through. Look up other explanations, not just the youtube. "Clear" means see-through, like water. This pen only helps with light scratches, not with deep ones when the undercoat is exposed.

  -> Many thanks! Yes, I know, but "translucent" wouldn't work as selling point for me so I'd avoid it. "The only way to repair damaged paint is with more paint" see consumer report: https://www.consumerreports.org/car-repair/car-scratch-repai...
