When converting TIME to CHAR(n) or VARCHAR(n), then n must be equal to or greater than the length of the TIME value as represented by a character string literal.

IF the target data type is … AND n is … THEN …
CHAR(n) greater than the length of the TIME value as represented by a character string literal trailing pad characters are added to pad the representation
too small a string truncation error is returned
VARCHAR(n) greater than the length of the TIME value as represented by a character string literal no blank padding is added to the character representation
too small a string truncation error is returned

TIME to CLOB conversion is not supported.

You cannot convert a TIME value to a character string when the server character set is GRAPHIC.
