Graffiti treatments

March 6th, 2019 | Sealers

What is the best treatment for my application?

When protecting a porous surface from potential graffiti attacks, it should be noted at the start that “penetrating sealer anti-graffiti treatments” are much more limited than their “coating, film-forming” counterparts. However, the benefits of the penetrating sealer options are:

  1. Invisible protection
  2. The substrate remains vapour permeable
  3. Protection lasts substantially longer

The unique characteristics of each of the Actichem graffiti resistant sealers, is outlined clearly below:

Graffiti Seal (AP173)
  • Specifically designed for dense, small pore stone and concrete
  • Ideal for granite, dense marble, and smooth concrete
  • Provides long term, uv stable protection against graffiti
  • Provides long term protection against grime and weathering.
Graffiti Repel (AP174)
  • Specifically for softer and open pore stone
  • Ideal for sandstone, bluestone, limestone
  • Provides long term, uv stable protection against graffiti
  • Provides long term protection against grime and weathering.
Intense (AP178)
  • Suitable for use on both dense and open pore stones
  • On dense granite, Intense can be thinned with Xylene 1:1 for easier application and enhanced penetration
  • Enhances and darkens the stone features
  • Provides outstanding protection against graffiti
  • Provides long term protection against grime and weathering.
