Types of Anti-Graffiti Coatings
Is there such a thing as graffiti prevention? Yes, there is. Anti-graffiti coatings prevent spray paint (aerosol paint) from sticking to surfaces which can save business owners a lot of money in re-painting costs.
Here are some common types of anti-graffiti coatings:
- Sacrificial Coatings – These coatings form a clear, protective barrier over the surface that can easily be removed by using a high-pressure washer.
- Semi-Sacrificial Coatings – Sometimes called “safety shields” acts as a penetrating sealer that protects the surface pores. This type of coating can be removed with a combination of solvents and pressure-washing.
- Permanent Coatings – These coatings create a protective surface that aerosol paints cannot bond to. In most cases, all that is needed to remove paint from a vandalized surface is a basic solvent (toluene).
