It’s bad enough when signs get “tagged” with graffiti. The sign’s appearance is diminished, and often the graffiti is a word or message that is chosen to get a reaction. The sign owner has no choice except to try and remove the graffiti, which often damages the sign paint as well as removing the graffiti. That can result in a very costly sign replacement.
Ideally, there would be a protective coating that would:
-be easy to apply
-not change the sign’s appearance
-be resistant to water, oil and UV
-allow graffiti to be removed using an environmentally safe cleaner and little physical effort.
Those characteristics, and a few more, are all found in Coval’s Anti-Graffiti Coating, which is specifically formulated for signs.
Coval’s Anti-Graffiti Coating, distributed by Nano Layer Technologies, is a quartz application that is optically clear and molecularly bonded to the sign.
When Anti-Graffiti Coating quartz is applied to a sign, rather than a polymer or silicon based product, the sign is protected by an application that:
-shields the paint on the sign from the graffiti paint
-adheres to the substrate without damaging it
-is non-sacrificial when removing graffiti
-improves scratch resistance (quartz is harder than granite)
-is hydrophobic (water resistant), oleophobic (oil resistant) and UV resistant
-is environmentally safe (fewer than 100 g/L VOCs)
-is cleaned with Coval’s Step 3 Graffiti Remover, a mild cleaner
The spray paint and magic marker were removed from the area protected by Coval’s Anti-Graffiti Coat, and removed with Step 3 Graffiti Remover, but the sign paint was not damaged. And because it is a coating of quartz that has molecularly bonded to the substrate, the coating was not damaged, either. It’s still there, protecting the sign for years to come.
