Got Maps?

If you use maps, you will find that this product will extend the life of them tremendously. I have used Map Seal often over the last 15 years and still have maps after ten years that have been folded and refolded and are still usable. Application can be a little tricky but worth the effort. Pinning the map to a large piece of cardboard can help reduce wrinkling and the fact that they are water-proofed is a real plus. I prefer a good map to a GPS and while motorcycle touring I don't have to worry about a map not lasting for an entire trip. (Coast to Coast).Here are a couple of pics of a map, circa 1997-98, treated both sides, and used often

I don't own a map-capable GPS

I don't use a GPS, prefer paper maps. I had used this product years ago on topo maps and looked for it for some recently acquired maps. I plan on tracing a nearby river and bought 8 maps. Instructions state one bottle will coat both sides of 6-8 topos but I'm having a hard time spreading the liquid thin enough to cover that many. I'll probably be able to coat 5-6 with one bottle. Good thing I ordered 2 bottles!

Good stuff when you need it

I had used a similar product years ago and now had more topo maps to treat. It takes a while to apply and dry but was exactly what I wanted. The foam brush that comes with it is a nice touch; it's just narrow to use when you have a full-size map to treat. Patience required but worth it. Apply it in strong light so you can see where you've spread it.

Aquaseal Waterproofing

The new USGS quad sheets I treated with Aquaseal are "printed on demand" using a process different from previously produced maps I am most familiar with. Very minor bleeding of map ink was noted on the newer style maps but doesn't happen on older maps. Bleeding may have been caused by my daubing up puddled Aquaseal product from map surface. Recommendation: apply with a wider sponge brush and work quickly.

Works very well. Maps are great!

Great product. Seals any paper product with a plastic coating which works well and looks very good. I have charts for the boat I coated from 25 years ago which are still in great condition. Helps reduce wear and tear also. Maps last much longer.

I used this on an inexpensive paper map to check it out & it passed with flying colors(wish my camp spray waterproofed as well on clothing). You must follow directions,brush in well,be patient & your maps will last in the rain.

Simple to apply & use. Should leave at least 10 minutes between the 2 coats on one side of a map, and the full 30 minutes between sides.

stuff works!

This stuff will make a paper map last a long time.

Great for those maps you can't get in plastic.

Negative Reviews:


Product does not work as described and you would be better off having the maps laminated. I was left with aeronautical sectionals that were wrinkled as the solution dried and it caused some ink to run makeing it illegible.

Worked As Advertised!

I soaked a map with this product of the Pinhoti Trail / Mt. Cheaha because it was a basic paper. I knew it would get wet from my perspiration during those typical HOT / HUMID days on the trail. It worked...I kept checking and checking and checking to see if there were any wet spots on it since I carry the map in my cargo pockets for quick access. Success! no wet spots...
