Liquid Coatings

Clearcoatings / Liquid Laminates

Clear coatings, also called liquid laminates, are an inexpensive way to protect billboards, prints, fine art, signs, banners, awnings and other products. Liquid laminates are cost-effective, easy to apply, and do not require extensive equipment. The cost ranges from 3-20 cents per square foot.

Marabu liquid laminates feature the most current innovations in ultraviolet light absorbers and light stabilizers that offer protection for many products. Use liquid laminates for:

  • digital inkjet output
  • printed and airbrushed products
  • traditional signage and graphic art applications

Our clear coatings, ClearShield®, ClearJet®, and MaraShield, are premium grade, high-performance products. We created them specially to:

  • protect inks from ultraviolet exposure
  • protect inks from abrasion and marring
  • provide resistance to chemicals and water

ClearShield laminates can be used with all types of vehicle and fleet graphics. It can be used over pressure sensitive cast and calendared materials, heavy tarpaulins and flex vinyl. The product provides excellent UV resistance as well as abrasion and chemical resistance yet it is flexible enough to go over any rivet or bend you may encounter while installing the graphic.
