Clear Sealant: Waterproof Transparent Adiseal Better Than Silicone
Adiseal ultra clear sealant is a transparent waterproof sealant that can seal instantly in dry or wet conditions. It can be used to seal a variety of items and is equally great as an exterior clear outdoor sealant as well as for indoor use. Adiseal outperforms clear silicone and mastics in many different sealing applications.
What is the best clear sealant?
Not all sealants or mastics 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 like clear silicone or mastic, Adiseal delivers exceptional clarity both during application and after drying, ensuring a crystal clear finish.
Clear silicone sealant
Cheaper clear silicone and mastics can appear almost white instead of truly clear. In contrast, Adiseal Ultra Clear maintains a crystal-clear appearance both when applied and after drying.
Test in water
Adiseal Ultra Clear is the top choice, staying exceptionally clear even when submerged in water. In a rigorous test, it was the only product to remain transparent both in and above water. We placed sealants and mastics from various manufacturers in clean plastic cups, filled them halfway with water, and covered them with plastic sheets for consistent conditions. The test results, shown below, highlight Adiseal Ultra Clear’s unmatched performance.

How to use a clear sealant
How to use a clear sealant
- 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.
- Cut the Nozzle
If using a tube of sealant. The size of the nozzle opening will determine the width of the sealant bead.
- 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.
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.
- 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.
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.
