Graffiti treatments

March 6th, 2019 | Stone & Tile

What is the best graffiti treatment for my application?

When it comes to safeguarding porous surfaces from potential graffiti damage, the choice of the right treatment is critical. Understanding the differences between “penetrating sealer anti-graffiti treatments” and “coating, film-forming” solutions is the first step in making an informed decision. However, the benefits of the penetrating sealer options are:

While the “penetrating sealer” options may have limitations compared to their film-forming counterparts, they offer distinct advantages:

    1. Invisible Protection: One of the primary benefits is the nearly invisible shield they create on the surface. This means protection without altering the visual appearance of the substrate.
    2. Vapour Permeability: Unlike film-forming treatments, these sealers allow the surface to breathe, maintaining its vapour permeability even after application.
    3. Longevity: These sealers provide prolonged protection, withstanding graffiti attacks and weathering for an extended period.
