Graffiti Removal costs a staggering amount of money each year in the United States and it directly or indirectly affects everybody. Anti Graffiti Coatings were developed in an effort to protect clients who are prone to Graffiti attacks, making removal of the graffiti possible in some instances without the use of pressure or power washing equipment.
There have been a number of different coatings developed over the years for the different types of substrates to be treated. However Anti Graffiti Coatings can be categorized into 2 main types. Sacrificial and Non sacrificial or Permanent Coatings.
Sacrificial Anti Graffiti Coatings
A Sacrificial Coating is a clear often completely invisible coating that forms a barrier for Graffiti. They are designed to removed along with the graffiti once power washed, hence the name “Sacrificial Coating”. Once the coating is removed along with the Graffiti, you would simply re-apply the coating to the area of attack each time.
The materials that are used in Sacrificial Coatings are usually inexpensive, clear polymers such as acrylates, bio polymers & waxes. The advantages of these coatings are that they will not alter the look of a building which is particular good for historical buildings and they are inexpensive whilst offer good protecting from Graffiti so that aggressive methods of Graffiti Removal are not necessary.
Non-Sacrificial Anti Graffiti Coatings
Non-Sacrificial or Permanent Anti Graffiti Coatings are generally more expensive and much more durable coatings. They are designed to be applied just one time and durable enough to handle multiple removals or many years of service life before they would need to be re-applied. They often will only require a simple solvent and some elbow grease to remove the Graffiti whilst preserving the both the coating and the surface which the coating has been applied to.
The materials used in the manufacture of these types of coatings include polyurethane, fluoridated hydrocarbons or siloxanes. The disadvantage of these types of coatings is the costs. They can be much more expensive than the simple sacrificial coatings, they can also be more difficult to apply and they generally are more visible than Sacrificial Coatings and form more of a surface film when applied which alters the appear of the surface to which it is applied. This can be undesirable especially on historic buildings.
Non-Sacrificial Coatings can be colored which make them ideal for painted surfaces. Call us today for a free appraisal or for more information.
