Application Conditions

Use outdoors or in a well ventilated area such as an open garage.  Apply when temperature is between 50°F (10°C) and 90°F (32°C) and humidity is below 65% to ensure proper drying.  Do not apply to surfaces, when heated, exceed 200°F (93°C).  Do not apply to galvanized steel.  Avoid spraying in very windy and dusty conditions. Cover surrounding area to protect from spray mist.



Surface Preparation

Remove all dirt, grease, oil, salt and chemical contaminants by washing the surface with soap and water.  Rinse with fresh water and allow to thoroughly dry.  Remove loose paint and rust with a wire brush or sandpaper. Previously coated surfaces must be sound and in good condition.  Lightly sand glossy surfaces.



Application 

Shake can vigorously for one minute after the mixing ball begins to rattle.  If mixing ball fails to rattle DO NOT STRIKE CAN. Contact Rust-Oleum.  Shake often during use.  Hold can 10-16" from the surface and spray in a steady back-and-forth motion, slightly overlapping each stroke.  Keep the can the same distance from the surface. Keep the can in motion while spraying.  Apply 2 or more light coats a few minutes apart. For best results, apply multiple light coats versus applying one heavy coat.  Crystal Clear Enamel can be used outdoors.  Do not apply over Stops Rust Bright Coat Finish or Aluminum finish.  Do not use near open flame.

questions Anna on 19/05/2019
Question: 

Can I use RustOleam crystal clear sealant to seal paint on my spice jar lids? Is it safe to use this way? Thanks

Answer: 

Yes it can be used for this type of application as long as the paint is well cured. If the paint is not fully hardened the Crystal Clear may react and cause it to wrinkle. You can do a test first, build up a few light coats rather than 1 heavy coat as this is also more likely to cause a reaction with the paint.

questions Bianca on 08/02/2019
Question: 

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

Answer: 

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
Question: 

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

Answer: 

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
Question: 

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

Answer: 

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?
Answer: 

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
Question: 

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

Answer: 

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
Question: 

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?

Answer: 

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.
