Clear Seal 5 gal. Semi Clear Acrylic Polymer is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 10.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Ames' Clear Seal is a unique sealant. I needed to repair a patio table that had multiple finishes... Ames' Clear Seal is a unique sealant. I needed to repair a patio table that had multiple finishes – or lack thereof – and materials. It penetrated deeply into the untreated areas that were deteriorated with the harsh winters here and, since application, has provided protection from rain and snow. The polymer sealant also effectively adhered to parts of the table that, although somewhat weathered, still had a finish protectant on them and provided a consistent semi-gloss finish to the entire table. The bonus for any DIYer is the sealant is water based and cleanup is a snap. Clear Seal seemed to work when applied with brush for corners and edges as well as with the roller for the flat surfaces. Loved the fact that it can be used as either the primer base or painted surfaces and the finish remains constant in both areas. I highly recommend this product.

Low vapor water-based sealer with sun-resistant clear coating is perfect for my DIY projects. I tested one and two coats on both pine and walnut with outstanding results. This goes on thicker than other semi-gloss poly- clear sealers I have used, and after two coats, builds up a very thick, durable coating. One coat is fine, but you can see from my photos that 2 coats is a little better. I like that this is water-based, but still provides sun and UV stability. The water-based formulation means not only that my cleanup is much easier, but also that I can work in my garage or basement with no fumes. I know when I use an oil-based sealer, the upstairs part of my house stinks for two days. Definitely worth a little extra money for both the thick sealant and odor-free process!

Using old weathered wood to make picture frames and other wood crafts, I run into parts of a board that has deterioration in the wood fibers. When brushed on the defective wood heavily, the Clear Seal soaked deeply into the wood was firmly stuck on. Once dried, the Clear Seal was firm to the touch and the rest of the project was spray painted. The product can be diluted if need be. Clear Seal is a water-based semi-clear thick plastic sealant and adhesive. It is elastomeric, stretching up to 300% to resist peeling. It dries to a semi-gloss finish.

It's easy to apply and provides an excellent sealer to prevent water penetration and also acts as a rust preventer on metal surfaces. It works well on concrete and the area in the photos show how well it covers and fills holes and cracks. It also works well on block, stucco, stone, wood, metal and siding. It's waterless, nearly odorless and cleans up with water. I definitely recommend the Ames Clear Sealer for the homeowner or painting professional.

Recently I obtained Aimes clear seal (semi clear) acrylic for some projects I have in progress. I'm working on some bare wood lawn furniture and want to keep the bare wood look yet apply protection from the elements. Due to the adverse (ongoing) weather at my Michigan abode, my work is on hold. However I have had an opportunity to test Aimes to get an idea on how my furniture will look after it's finished. So I did a test run on some bare wood for comparison. I didn't want a high gloss or change the look of the wood as with a varnish or polyurethane. I think the Aimes is going to be the perfect applicant as the board I tested kept it's finished color and shade with almost no gloss. After the Aimes was applied and cured I did a water test and it completely repelled the water. This product is unique as it is a water based product and clean up is the same as you would do with a latex paint. Simply rinse your painting gear with water. Also you can apply Aimes with a brush, roller or sprayer. As an added bonus it can be applied to almost any surface including wood, vinyl, plastic and yes even metal. It bonds with any surface providing protection against corrosion, moss growth and wood rot.It can be used as a primer base coat or applied over painted surfaces like a finish coat. It's unique bonding properties resist cracking and splintering since it bonds with fibers yet remains flexible and will expand and contract while maintaining that bond. I highly recommend this product.

I got the Ames Clear Seal to seal some older galvanized sheet metal used on an awning. While the Clear Seal can be used on siding, wood, metal, stone, stucco, bricks and concrete, I had some screw holes and some bends that caused seams in my galvanized metal awning. The clear elastomeric coating was easy to apply via a roller and the gallon quantity was sufficient for my project. All appears to be sealed well, no leaks and it should inhibit rust. A good product.

I found so many uses for this product, not only for craft projects, but for sealing after painting vintage furniture, I am assured it decreases any scratches that might occur, during normal wear and tear. I've also used it to seal the deck , that has been made from pallets. It brings out the wood grain, puddles when wet.a gallon goes a very long ways.
