DIY applications are endless. X-Seal’s Liquid Miracle can be used in a multitude of instances where you need to seal, strengthen, stick or encapsulate.
Due to its low viscosity, Liquid Miracle is able to completely soak the surfaces to be glued together, thus displacing any trapped air. This attribute allows Liquid Miracle’s unparalleled adhesion to most substrates. Air is often trapped when using thick, sticky glues, resulting in a weaker bond. Liquid Miracle Acrylic C120 is an effective self-penetrating glue:
My ceramic bird table smashed to the ground and I painstakingly pieced it together, a section at a time before applying the Seek-n-Seal Acrylic C120 sealant, by drip feeding with a pipette, being careful not to touch the friable assembly.
Once cured, I added a further section of broken pieces and again applied the sealant until the rebuild was complete. Within 24 hours, the reassembled bird table received its first coat of white enamel paint and is once again back in business feeding the wildlife.

Our Antique Rocking horse Circa 1920s is made up of carved wooden blocks that had become loose; and one detached. The horse was stripped of paint. Without dismantling and securing the loose block in place, the structure was drip fed with Seek-n-Seal at the interface of the blocks. The application continued until such time that saturation had been achieved.
The horse is now back in circulation, being enjoyed by my grandchildren.

Five years ago a plumber fitted up a new sink in my bathroom but failed to bed it in with sealant. It was only after some time that the problem revealed itself when dampness was noted on the ceiling below. Rather than dismantling the whole unit, I drip fed Seek-n-Seal Acrylic C120 around the fitting and it has remained sealed ever since. The application took just 5 minutes.
It’s often easier to reassemble a broken object dry and then to drip feed Liquid Miracle directly onto the joints between the parts. It’s important to ensure that full saturation of the sealant is achieved.
Liquid Miracle is an excellent treatment for loose joints. It can be drip fed into the interface between the two objects. Where access is limited, drill a 4mm hole in a descreet position and inject Liquid Miracle using hypodermic syringe. Ensure the joint is flooded.
As with most applications, using Liquid Miracle has the considerable advantage of being able to apply the sealant without dismantling the target, making it simple to seal things like boat or caravan windows and deck fittings. Initial jointing compounds eventually dry and crack, losing their sealing ability. Liquid Miracle Acrylic C120 fills these cracks, creating a permanent watertight barrier, ensuring the interface remains sealed. Unlike mastics that need removing before resealing, Liquid Miracle impregnation can be re-applied as many times as may be found necessary.
This is simple and straight forward, achieved by spraying Liquid Miracle Acrylic C120 from above, allowing a curtain of sealant to flow over the surface in order to achieve saturation of the substrate.
As an alternative to whipping, bind the rope with insulation tape either side of the point at which the rope is to be cut. Wrap the cutting area with insulating tape and cut through. Immediately drip-feed the ends with Liquid Miracle.
Pack the screw hole with cotton wool padding and drip-feed with Liquid Miracle. Once cured, drill as required.
Liquid Miracle impregnant will readily wet out glass fibre and other composite materials. Because of the rapid speed of application together with the short cure time of the impregnant, structures can be produced in minutes rather than hours.
