Hard to know exactly what is meant by "clear coat safe". It certainly is safe in the regard that it will not damage your clear coat when use correctly. But as with a lot of products, if used incorrectly, they can cause damage.

Because I'm in the middle of remodelling a house, I'll use this analogy ... a heat gun used to remove old paint from wood work could be labeled as "wood safe". If, however, you use it incorrectly, damage can surely be done! You'll burn the house down.

Agreed ... the filling of finer scratches is done with your wax or sealant, I might add.
