ClearShield®: clear liquid laminate for non-water-sensitive ink/media combinations

ClearShield® is your first choice for all non-water-sensitive applications. We created ClearShield® using state-of-the-art resins and ultraviolet inhibitors that protect the substrate, ink, and the clear coating itself. These non-yellowing clear coatings have excellent exterior durability and are highly flexible.

Use ClearShield® on most substrates, including waterproof canvas, vinyl, banners, fiberglass, wood, metal, plastic, and paper. You can apply it over solvent-based inks and most water-based paint systems. ClearShield® is available in several versions. This chart gives you information about each product.
