questions Bianca on 08/02/2019

Is Rust-Oleum Crystal Clear compatible with graffiti acrylic paints? With any acrylic paints? If not, which clear coat can you recommend? Thanks.


Rust-Oleum Crystal Clear has some strong solvents in which could attack some types of paint coatings, so we would recommend a test area first to ensure suitability.

questions Kath on 11/11/2018

Could this be used ontop of painted ceramic tiles in the bathroom?


Rust-Oleum Crystal Clear has very strong solvents in as do most aerosols and the product is quite likely to attack a freshly applied paint coating. If the paint has been on the tiles for a month or so it might be OK but we can’t guarantee it. A test area would be advisable.

Provided the tiles are not in a shower enclosure, another option would be Blackfriar Quick Drying Varnish, this would be less likely to react and will be easier to work with.

questions Alex on 09/03/2018

Do you have a clear coat (not high gloss) for use on heat shield behind wood stove


Rust-Oleum Crystal Clear is based on acrylic resins which soften and go tacky when warm, we wouldn’t recommend its use for this application. The maximum temperature it could go to before it starts to go soft would be something like 40-50°C.

questions Simon on 08/05/2016
Question: Will Rustoleum Crystal Clear be suitable to use on a surface painted with one of your custom mixed Combicolour aerosols?

No, but you could use Rust-Oleum Hard Hat 2500 Transparent Protection instead. Allow the Rust-Oleum Custom Filled Aerosols to dry for at least 48 hours before application of the clear protective coating.

questions Susan Edwards on 02/10/2015

Can I use Rust-Oleum Crystal Clear on chrome to stop it rusting?


Yes, but you must make sure the surface is thoroughly cleaned and lightly abraded to provide a key first.

questions Jenny Ogg on 15/05/2015

Seem to be able to get Rustoleum Crystal Clear Enamel in USA but cant find it in UK. Is Rust-Oleum Crystal Clear the same? Looking to coat hand made coasters with a heat resistant spray - is this heat resistant at all?


Rust-Oleum Crystal Clear is the UK equivalent of the American product you have seen and will withstand temperatures up to 100°C (dry heat). It's ideal for providing a clear protective coat to many different surfaces and should be perfect for your coasters.
