As far as I can tell, it's rock-solid once it cures. Downside is it'll prevent you from applying anything water-based on top of it (like further inks, or watercolor paints), though I'll bet enamels, oils, or lacquers would stick to it just fine (though I haven't tested). Also if you dab too much on in one spot and don't start spreading/buffing it immediately, it will soak through the paper, causing "grease spot" areas where the paper is more translucent (though maybe this could be an advantage in some applications, like sealing gouache paints, for example). So don't dab it around in different places before starting buffing: work locally.
As others have said, it works best if left to "cure" overnight. For best results it's also important to buff it down very thoroughly when applying: if there's still and streaks or finger/brush mark type texture, keep going. The goal is not to create a layer on top that seals like a coat of paint, but rather to impregnate the ink and paper. When it's freshly applied, the paper will feel greasy to the touch, but once it's had enough time to cure, the paper will feel dry and slightly smoother than before; sort of halfway between regular paper and magazine paper.
Also make sure the ink (and paper) is fully dry before applying. It won't smear the ink, but if the ink is still damp, you may get some colored "lint" from moisture-loosened paper fibers spread around on the paper (and permanently sealed in place).
If you're looking for something to seal inks so you can paint over them with watercolors, this won't help you. Only solution there I think is to switch to an ink that's waterproof. I'm just using it to "bulletproof" inks that look great, but are too fragile for my comfort.
I also use it before I set a vintage label, photo or other paper good with diamond glaze, triple glaze, sun and moon glaze, modge podge and royal coat glazes.
The trick is sealing the edges!
Be sure to buff after it sets an hour or so with a soft cloth and don't use too much :)
