Keeping buildings free from graffiti is a challenging task that has to be done efficiently and quickly. Therefore Protectosil® products have been developed. Additionally, Protectosil ANTIGRAFFITI® is water-based and almost VOC-free.
Paints, markers and coatings can be easily removed with our Protectosil ANTIGRAFFITI® systems. They cannot penetrate into the pores of the building structure so that tags simply run off the surface and the sprayer becomes frustrated. Protectosil ANTIGRAFFITI® is UV- and weathering resistant and authorized by BASt (German Federal Highway Research Institute). Paintings and signatures cannot adhere to the surface even during their application. The product is ready to use and has to be applied on the clean surface. The invisible protective system protects against UV radiation and atmospheric influences, so that the water-vapor permeability of the substrate is retained. The building structure remains breathable.
Protectosil ANTIGRAFFITI® SP complements the product Protectosil ANTIGRAFFITI® as a spreadable, semi-permanent graffiti protection system.
