CLEARSHIELD ® Canvas Guard
Waterproof canvas applications (highly flexible)

Clearshiled Type C ClearShield Canvas Guard is a waterbased liquid laminate for the Fine Art and Giclee industries.

ClearShield Canvas Guard is the ideal protection coating for Giclee canvas applications. It's flexibile, so the clear coating won't crack on stretched canvas. ClearShield laminate is formulated to work on micro porous and porous ink jet receptive layers. It reduces or eliminates pinholes normally encountered when applying Liquid Laminates to inkjet coated canvas. Canvas Guard is formulated to be used over water-resistant canvas printed with pigmented inks. ClearShield can be applied with almost all techniques, including most automated equipment. Satin is best applied by spray or liquid lamination equipment.

For gel coated and other water sensitive canvas and dye-based inks use ClearJet Fine Art liquid coatings.

How To Apply

We recommend using either a high-density foam roller or a 3/16" short-nap roller. Saturate the roller with ClearShield Canvas Guard and then allow the access coating to fall back into the tray. The coating should not be dripping off the roller. Apply one thin coat, moving from one side of the canvas to the other. It is not necessary to have a wet, saturated film across the entire surface. Allow the first thin coat to dry to the touch. This should take about 30 minutes to an hour. Apply a second thin to medium coat in the same manner as the first: from side to side.
