Which clear sealant?

Not all clear sealants are truly transparent when applied, often appearing cloudy instead. However, Adiseal Ultra Clear stands out as the top choice for a waterproof clear sealant. Unlike other products, it delivers exceptional clarity both during application and after drying, ensuring a crystal clear finish. With Adiseal Ultra Clear, you can achieve the desired transparency for your sealing projects.

Clear silicone sealant

Cheaper clear silicone sealants often lack true transparency, appearing almost white instead of clear. However, Adiseal Ultra Clear stands out with its crystal-clear appearance upon application, which remains unchanged even after drying. In the accompanying image, the distinction between a standard clear silicone on the left and the previous formula of Adiseal Ultra Clear on the right is evident.

Test in water

Adiseal Ultra Clear stands out as the top choice due to its exceptional clarity, even when submerged in water. In a rigorous test conducted by our team, Adiseal Ultra Clear emerged as the only product that maintained its transparency both in and above water. To conduct the test, we applied sealants from various manufacturers into clean plastic cups. These cups were then filled halfway with water and covered with a plastic sheet, ensuring consistent conditions for all samples. After several days, the test results revealed the unmatched performance of Adiseal Ultra Clear, as depicted in the image below.

The image clearly illustrates the significant differences in performance among the tested products. While the competitor sealants exhibited a concerning white discoloration upon contact with water, Adiseal stood out as the top performer. Even in challenging conditions, Adiseal maintained its impressive clarity above the waterline, with only a slight cloudiness observed below the water. Notably, the competitor’s claim of being the number 1 sealant was disproven, as their product displayed the poorest performance, turning white both above and below the waterline. Surprisingly, their previous formula fared better than their new formula, which exhibited white discoloration both above and below the waterline. Adiseal’s exceptional performance in the water test solidifies its position as the superior product choice.

How to use a clear sealant

How to use a clear sealant

  1. Surface Preparation

    Ensure the surface is clean, dry, and free from dust, grease, and other contaminants. Use a suitable cleaner if necessary and allow the surface to fully dry before applying the sealant.

  2. Cut the Nozzle

    If using a tube of sealant. The size of the nozzle opening will determine the width of the sealant bead.

  3. Apply the Sealant

    Starting at one end of the desired area, slowly and evenly apply the sealant in a continuous bead. Maintain a consistent pressure on the caulking gun or tube to ensure a smooth and uniform application.

  4. Tooling

    Immediately after applying the sealant, use a sealant tool or a moistened finger to smooth and shape the bead. This helps ensure proper adhesion and creates a neat finish. Remove any excess sealant.

  5. Drying and Curing

    Allow the sealant to dry and cure according to the manufacturer’s instructions. This process may take several hours or longer, depending on the sealant type and environmental conditions.

  6. Clean-Up

    Clean excess sealant from tools, surfaces, and your hands using an appropriate solvent or soapy water before it dries.

Tip: To store Adiseal once opened, leave about 1cm worth of product out of the nozzle and store the tube upright in a cool dry place. Adiseal requires moisture for it to cure. The exposed part out of the nozzle will cure creating a cap. To re-use Adiseal, pull the cured part out or cut the nozzle until the uncured part is reached.
