This formulation is lower in viscosity than ClearShield Classic, but offers the same great UV-protection, chemical and abrasion resistance as well as dirt pick up resistance. ClearShield Classic Lite can be applied by hand using a roller application or using automated spray equipment.
ClearShield Classic Lite is a water-based liquid laminate that can offer the same protection as film laminates while saving as much as 60% in production costs. To ensure maximum protection our coatings are specifically formulated for a variety of inks and applications such as banners, vehicle graphics, billboards, signage, and truck-side curtains.
Marabu's ClearShield Liquid Coatings are formulated with state of the art UV-inhibitors and HALS (hindered amine light stabilizers) to provide superior protection against damaging UV-rays. Our coatings also offer protection against chemicals, abrasion, and dirt pick up.
ClearShield Classic Lite can be applied by hand with a brush or roll application or by automated spray equipment.
Brush and Roll Application
Using the coating as supplied, brush and roll onto your print using a short-nap roller or a high-density foam roller. In-house, we prefer a 3/16" short-nap roller when applying our coatings in a brush and roll application. Apply two coats, waiting approximately an hour in between coats for the coating to completely dry.
Automated Spray Equipment
Our ClearShield coatings are easy to apply using an HVLP gravity-fed spray gun. We recommend using a 1.3 to 1.6mm tip and a psi of 45-55.
