– Anti-Graffiti coaters
Graffiti removal costs businesses exorbitant amounts of money each year. There are many anti-graffiti programmes in place globally, but vandalism is an ongoing challenge. Around the world anti-graffiti coatings are being developed to prevent vandals from damaging property. The coatings prevent graffiti paint from adhering to exteriors. These coatings can be the actual paint, or a transparent layer added to the top of the existing paint or facades of a building. There are several types of anti-graffiti coatings and depending on the extent of the graffiti, each coating has its own advantages and disadvantages.
– SAcRIFICIAL coatings
Sacrificial coatings form a transparent covering that acts as a shield, protecting the wall or surface. The substances used to make sacrificial coatings are usually cost-effective translucent polymers which establish delicate adhesion with the underlying substance or layer to make removal quicker and easier. The entire coating can be sacrificed or removed with the use of a pressure washer if the exterior is vandalised. Reapplication of the coating is then required, hence the term ‘sacrificial coating’. There are pros and cons to using each type of coating, depending on the extent of graffiti paint damage.
– NON-SAcRIFICIAL coatings
Non sacrificial coatings are permanent graffiti resistant coatings that support multiple graffiti removals. These types of graffiti resistant coatings come in various colours as well as transparent clear finish. Depending on the degree of damage, graffiti can easily be removed by using solvent-based cleaners. As well as speeding up the graffiti removal process, non sacrificial coatings have a longer life span.
– Photocatalyst Coatings
Photocatalyst Coatings provides a new type of technology to Australia that already has over 20 years of proven performance in Japan. A photocatalyst is a substance that causes a reaction without being involved itself. The photocatalyst is energised by light causing excitation at the surface. Our photocatalyst product contains water and nano titanium dioxide. Used as an anti graffiti application, these coatings are transparent and are designed for a wide range of surfaces including; concrete, glass, bricks and masonry, ceramics, painted surfaces and solar panels.
