Wax-based anti-graffiti coating
Fields of application
Graffiti Shield is a water-based wax emulsion that functions as an anti-graffiti coating and can be used on most surfaces including brick, concrete, granite, sandstone, limestone, plaster etc.
– Protects against spray paint, paintbrush and marker graffiti
– Prevents occurrence of hard to clean “graffiti shadows”
– Low melting point
– UV resistant
– Estimated lifetime of approx. 5-10 years
– Certified in accordance with the Swedish Transport Administration’s AMA structure 10
Start by cleaning the surface thoroughly to remove dirt, algae, traffic film, wax and any paint remnants from old graffiti.
Allow the surface to dry so that it is dry or slightly damp but not wet.
NB! New concrete must harden for a minimum of 28 days before the anti-graffiti coating is applied. When applying anti-graffiti coating to newly painted surfaces, allow the paint to dry for approx. 1 – 4 weeks before application takes place.
Shake the product well before use! Apply the product using an airless or low-pressure spray gun or roll it on with a roller. If the product runs, even it out with a paintbrush.
The coating should be applied in 2-3 layers and the first layer must be dry before the next layer is applied (usually 30 minutes – 2 hours).
NB! 3 applications are required if 10-year protection is desired! The treated surface must have a minimum temperature of approx. 5°C. Drying time is 1-4 hours depending on the temperature.
The anti-graffiti coating is water-repellent after approx. 2 hours and hardening is complete after approx. 72 hours.
After treatment, it is easier to remove graffiti or other undesired residues with a pressure washer (70-150 bar) and hot water (approx. 65°C). Adjust pressure to the facade.
2-3 new layers of the product are then applied to the cleaned surface, which is subsequently protected against graffiti again.
NB! The surface may appear darker and glossier after treatment.
Before you begin – Always evaluate the product on each surface to be treated, for suitability and results before overall application. It is important to include previous repairs and repairs in the test area. Different materials / surface compositions can result in absorption and / or appearance differences. Also test the application speed, pattern and technology needed to obtain a smooth surface.
The product is used in concentrated form.
