ClearGuard

CLEAR MOLD & MOISTURE RESISTANT COATING* | INTERIOR / EXTERIOR Long-Term Protection & Clear Coverage

ClearGuard is a clear satin protective coating for the long-lasting protection of most construction materials in high-humidity areas. It applies white, but once cured forms a durable and clear satin finish that is mold and water-resistant. ClearGuard is breathable to prevent against wet and dry rot and allows for drying if saturated in the future.

*Treated Articles Exemption – This product contains an EPA registered antimicrobial to protect the coating from non-public health fungi and odor causing bacteria. No public health claims are being made.

Size Availability: 5 Gallon Pail
Shelf Life: 12-24 Months

Application

ClearGuard is formulated as a ready-to-use coating. It can be applied with a brush, roller or airless sprayer to obtain an even finish. Do not apply past the point of run-off. A cross-hatching technique is the best way to ensure sufficient wet/dry film thickness and complete coverage. Consult the Enviroguard New Construction Warranty and Enviroguard Existing Construction Warranty documents for details.

Uses

All structural surfaces especially in unconditioned and moisture prone areas such as attics, basements and crawl spaces and for post-remediation specifications.

Surfaces

ClearGuard is used to protect most construction materials including treated and untreated lumber, OSB, particle board, masonry surfaces, concrete, brick, wallboard, composite construction materials and metals. Other surfaces include sheathing, trusses, framing, joists, plates, pillars, posts, beams and walls.

Features/Benefits

  • Breathable to prevent dry or wet rot conditions
  • 
Acts as a moisture barrier to prevent moisture content increases
  • Forms a tough, resistant barrier to harsh environments and contaminants
  • Abrasion- resistant and scrubbable
  • Tintable

Safety

Consult SDS for details

Coverage Rate

For best results, apply at 160 ft2 per gallon (800 ft2 per pail = 10 wet mils) based upon location, surface texture, porosity, age and application method. Does not include loss from over-spray or over-use.

CONSCIENTIOUS PROTECTION

SafeGuard is protected by the isothiazalone antimicrobial molecule that won the 1996 Presidential Green Chemistry Challenge Award for Designing Safer Chemistries. Its leach resistance ensures a long service life. It’s non-persistence in the environment prevents liability.

Compatable with Oxypar and Botanical products.

A BARRIER TO THE ENVIRONMENT

By placing a physical antimicrobial-protected barrier between the structure and the environment, both moisture and contaminant control is certain.

BREATHABILITY MATTERS

While SafeGuard is moisture resistant to the environment, it does allow water vapor to pass between the environment and the structural surfaces. So if moisture content is high, SafeGuard helps prevent against wet rot and conversely, it prevents dry rot.
