Cleaning graffiti from walls, pavements and from the inside of public areas, stations, tunnels, schools and much more costs millions of pounds every year. It’s unlikely that graffiti will stop any time soon, but we can help prevent any damage by applying an anti-graffiti coating..
Anti-graffiti coatings are preventative paints that work to stop inks, aerosols and other markings bonding to the surface. Sometimes referred to as anti-vandal paints, these anti-graffiti products can be used internally and externally on a wide range of different surfaces, including previously painted surfaces, bare surfaces, smooth surfaces like metal and plastic, porous surfaces like brick and stonework.
There are two common types of paint used today. The first and most commonly used are water-based paints such as latex and acrylic paint, and the second are oil-based paints. The paint of choice will depend on the substrate to be painted upon and the desired end result. However, all paints effectively have the same basic structure.
Whilst the initial cost to supply and apply the paint can seem quite expensive trying to remove any graffiti from an non-coated surface will certainly prove more expensive and time consuming in the long term.
