Anti-Graffiti Coating


Dealing with reoccurring graffiti can get expensive. Not to mention the toll repetitive removals takes on your property's surface, which actually cause the graffiti to become harder to remove over time. In situations like this, My Graffiti Removal Guy recommends having all graffiti prone areas treated with an anti-graffiti coating. Anti-graffiti coatings work by creating a protective barrier that paint cannot adhere to. Generally there are only two types of anti-graffiti coatings, permanent and sacrificial.

Permanent coatings can degrade causing the surface to turn cloudy.

Permanent coatings are typically made of a polyurethane base. Permanent coatings allow graffiti to be removed with soap and water in some cases. For tougher spots you may need to use some type of paint solvent and/or a scrub brush to remove graffiti. These coatings are often more expensive than sacrificial coatings, although they perform around the same for the first few years. After repetitive cleaning, continued exposure to UV and other environmental factors permanent coatings can turn cloudy, peel and/or crack. When these sort of coatings degrade and you need to have it removed , you'll see why they say "it's permanent."

 

 Sacrificial coatings are typically made of a clear polymer such as wax. Sacrificial coatings will allow graffiti to be removed as well as the coating without the risk of damage to the building's surface. Graffiti and/or the coating can be easily removed using hot pressurized water.
