CCW Clear Penetrating Sealer is a significant innovation in sealer technology. The proprietary “no-tarp, no-tape” format is not hazardous to plastic, glass, metal and plants, doing away with time-consuming and expensive jobsite prep time. The water-based concentrate is packaged in 1- and 20-liter containers that are easy to transport and store.

Steve Velten, senior research chemist at Carlise Coatings & Waterproofing, elucidated that Clear Penetrating Sealer is a reactive, water-dissolvable nanotechnology akin to the lotus leaf, which is nature’s only self-cleansing organism. When water falls on the lotus leaf, hair-like, nanoscale structures cause the water drop to roll off, collecting dirt as it goes, creating what researchers have termed the “lotus effect”. He added that Carlise Coatings & Waterproofing has come up with a similar formula for the Clear Penetrating Sealer.

Clear Penetrating Sealer has many attributes and advantages such as:

  • Suitable for various substrates, thus removing confusing product choices
  • 20% increase in coverage rates when compared to competitors’ products
  • Allows interior dampness to vanish without causing any deterioration to the sealer
  • Complies with VOC stipulations (<350 g/L)
  • Can be used even in occupied areas due to very low level of odor
  • Causes minimum mildew, atmospheric stains and efflorescence
  • UV stable and does not alter the original surface appearance as it is non-staining and transparent
