Clear Guard Black is a zero VOC tinted acrylic laquer that darkens and protects metal in one step. The black is slightly transparent, and the shine is matte to resemble a natural metal finish. Clear Guard Black is a ready to spray formula so there is no need to thin. However, you can mix Clear Guard Black with Clear Guard or Clear Guard EF before spraying to increase transparency. Allow 1 hour to cure between coats and at least 48 hours to dry before applying a sealer.
Clear Guard Black produces excellent results on most metals, including copper, brass, bronze, steel, aluminum, stainless, and zinc/galvanized. For additional protection or to adjust the sheen of the finish, layer with additional coats of Satin or Matte Clear Guard or Clear Guard EF. If the installation will be outdoors or in a wet environment, we recommend Ever Clear or Hydro Clear to protect the finish.
Clear Guard Black is available in 12oz. spray cans and 32oz., 1 gallon, and 5 gallon containers. One gallon will typically cover 250 sq. ft.
