Anti-Graffiti Coating

AZ’s Coquitlam Painters are always proud to serve our community, especially when it involves improving its appearance with anti-graffiti coating. When the general contractor called us for this local community project, we were ready to take on a key role! 

Our  Coquitlam painting team was tasked to provide the finishing touches to this beautiful mural in the local park. To protect it from damage and any kind of defacing, we applied a bright green anti graffiti paint over the concrete wall and then followed it up by sealing the finished mural with an anti graffiti coating.

Graffiti may be considered art to some people, but this is only true when it’s painted on canvases. To be honest, there’s really nothing artistic about defacing public property. 

The truth is that graffiti, also known as tagging, is a scourge to many industrial lots, commercial buildings, and other public properties. Some are even more daring, trespassing on private property and tagging residential homes. 

Not only is it illegal to tag or mark someone else’s property, but these products are also extremely hard and sometimes impossible for property owners to remove. You can see evidence of this everywhere, one of the most common examples of this being train cars.

Anti-Graffiti Coating for Public Murals and Other Artwork:

In the case of a public mural, such as in a school or even this park, removing graffiti would be an even more difficult task. Unfortunately, many cleaning solutions that remove graffiti paint may also smudge the mural art underneath.

Luckily, there are anti graffiti paint and coating products to prevent this all together! Anti-graffiti coating is a clear paint that gets applied on a finished surface. 

The coating prohibits any kind of spray paint from sticking. It’s like a protective clear coat for art and other public property that is at risk of being defaced.

As mentioned, spray paints won’t bond to the anti graffiti coating You see, the siloxane ingredients used in anti graffiti paint products are designed to resist acrylic spray paints commonly used for graffiti. 

The chemicals simply won’t bond together, so the paint just remains over the coating. This makes it easy to wipe off without damaging any of the paint underneath the anti-graffiti coating. 

Further, the materials in some anti-graffiti paint products also provide a protective barrier for the surface from moisture and other kinds of damage. For this project, it meant that the paint used in the mural would remain bright, despite weather conditions and color-fading sunlight.

Anti Graffiti Spray Coating

Ensuring that graffiti does not leave a lasting impression on your surfaces can be a challenge, but with the right approach, you can achieve remarkable results. The first step is to select the appropriate anti-graffiti spray for the surface that you want to protect. Once you have established this, it is important to undertake a thorough cleaning of the surface to make sure that it is free from stains, dirt and any other substances that could affect the efficacy of the anti-graffiti coating. Ensure that the surface is completely dry before applying the coating to achieve the best results. Take time to go through the instructions provided by the manufacturer carefully and commit to applying the coating properly to prevent any avoidable mistakes that could leave room for graffiti stains.

Project Challenges | Anti Graffiti Coating

The project entailed a collaborative effort by a team of mural artists and contractors to revamp a local community park. It presented an opportunity for the team to add value to the park by giving it a fresh, new look and also cater to the needs of park visitors. The team utilized cutting-edge anti graffiti green paint on one side of the park’s mural wall, which was not only resistant to spray paint but also designed for exceptional color vibrancy and durability. Such durability was necessary for the mural wall, which serves as a popular rock-climbing wall and would inevitably suffer wear from use. Following the mural wall’s completion, the team applied a thick, robust coating to the entire concrete wall for added durability. Consequently, using this anti graffiti paint ensured that vandals could not vandalize the mural inadvertently, and any attempt to do so would be easily reversed without affecting the artwork’s quality and integrity.

Permanent Anti Graffiti Coating

A permanent coating is a protective layer applied to surfaces to prevent graffiti from adhering to them. Such coatings come in various types, including sacrificial coatings, which can be removed, or permanent coatings. Anti graffiti are particularly effective in high-traffic areas, where repeated removal of graffiti can be costly and time-consuming.

These coatings are typically made from silicone, epoxy, or urethane, and are applied using spray or brush-on methods. Once applied, they form a hard, non-stick, and protective barrier that shields surfaces from graffiti and vandalism. These coatings are also resistant to weathering, UV radiation, and abrasion, making them ideal for outdoor use.

While they may be more expensive than sacrificial coatings, they offer long-term benefits, reducing maintenance costs, and providing a more sustainable solution to graffiti prevention on commercial and industrial properties. Installing these coatings can also help maintain the aesthetic appeal and value of public spaces and private property.
