Lexel vs. Other Clear Sealants: How Clear Is It?

When it comes to caulks and sealants, what does “clear” usually mean?

Lexel is the clearest of them all. Sashco’s all-new Lexel cartridge really shows who is the clearest of them all.

When it comes to caulking, it’s rare for “clear” to actually mean transparent. It’s typical for manufacturers to refer to their caulk as “clear,” but in reality, it means cloudy, a little white, or sickly gray, not really transparent. That’s what people want: a sparkling clean window type of clear that’s easy to see through, not a clear that’s like looking through plastic wrap. Can we get an amen?

What does clear mean on a Lexel® sealant cartridge?

On the NTU scale, pure filtered water is rated 0. Lexel is rated 6. Yep! We mean clear, not nearly clear, or clearish


Why so clear?

A high-quality product should work. It’s frustrating when a toy breaks after one use, tires or appliances wear out too quickly, or “clear” sealants look more like “cloudy with a chance of yellow.” That’s why we’ve staked our reputation on Lexel’s “Crystal Clear” formula, which offers superior adhesion and flexibility that won’t crack or yellow over time and is backed by an industry-leading 5-year mold-free product guarantee.

That's paint under Lexel. Yes, it's that clear. That’s paint UNDER Lexel. Yes, it’s that clear.

By packaging Lexel® in a clear cartridge, Sashco was the first company to establish bold clarity for everyone to see. Others still hid their cloudy “clear” behind white walls of traditional caulking cartridges.

Innovation is alive and well at Sashco

We’re pretty excited to announce that after ten years of development, Sashco just released the all-new Lexel® cartridge. It’s the clearest cartridge available today. Why not? We have nothing to hide. It’s still the same product we introduced in 1986, so it won’t turn cloudy, gray, yellow, or unclear anytime soon. If you absolutely, positively need your clear sealant to be really clear, you need Lexel®.
