Getting rid of graffiti can be quite a difficult and annoying task, especially if you don't have the right tools for it (if you need them, you can take a look at our special cleaning and application tools) and the surface is very porous, or if it's smooth but delicate and you're afraid of damaging it.
Why use Mavro International’s anti-graffiti paint coatings
Our Anti graffiti paints (anti vandal paints), which are actually anti graffiti coatings, prepare the surface for the next attack. After the dirty deed is done, removing graffiti is going to be easy and fast because the layer that the anti graffiti paint left on the surface prevents the graffiti paint from sticking that well, your wall will be clean in no time.
What types of anti graffiti coatings do we offer?
Anti graffiti coatings are broadly divided into permanent, semi-permanent, temporary or sacrificial anti graffiti coating and nanotechnology-based anti graffiti coatings.
Semi-permanent anti-graffiti coatings or: sacrificial anti graffiti coatings
Semi-permanent anti-graffiti coatings are an excellent choice for several reasons. While they protect the surface against paint burn-in, they also protect it against dirt adhesion, algae and lichen growth and exhaust pollution deposits. Having said all this, it is interesting to note that such semi-permanent anti-graffiti coatings do not 'seal' the surface, which is particularly important in the context of mineral surfaces, as such these protective coatings allow brick or natural stone masonry to be vapour permeable, i.e. to breathe. Since these kinds of anti-graffiti coatings are wax-based, they are easily removed using warm water and a high-pressure cleaner, and any dirt, graffiti or other paint along with them. It is because of this principle that they are called sacrificial anti graffiti coatings. If you need more information about this kind of graffiti protection, please do not hesitate contacting us.
Permanent anti-graffiti coatings
A temporary anti-graffiti coating must be reapplied to the surface, after the graffiti has been removed. It is called sacrificial anti graffiti coatings precisely because we “sacrifice” the coating in order to remove the pollution and/or graffiti. This is not the case with permanent anti-graffiti coatings. Permanent coatings against graffiti can withstand repeated cleaning, but this requires the use of appropriate chemical graffiti removers, as this is the only way to ensure that, after cleaning, the surface will still be protected from graffiti for a long time. permanent anti graffiti coatings also need a primer to be applied beforehand. The upside is, of course, that a permanent anti-graffiti coating will last a long time and will endure many cleanings before it needs to be reapplied.
Nano coatings anti-graffiti
Nano anti-graffiti coatings represent some of the most advanced solutions in the field of anti-graffiti protection. Nano-based coatings penetrate even into the microscopic pores of the substrate and prevent the adhesion of paint and dirt. And cleaning a surface treated with a nano anti-graffiti coating is so much easier.
Is there anti-graffiti paint or graffiti proof paint?
There is. Modern technology and a masterful product development department allows us to “turn” coatings against graffiti into graffiti proof paint, referred to by some also as anti vandal paint. Mavro International offers anti-graffiti paint available in all RAL colours. So you can cover the surface with your favourite anti-graffiti paint and protect it from graffiti, but also from pollution, water and dirt. An anti graffiti paint is basically a protective coating that also has colour. Graffiti resistant paint has gained notoriety in the last years because it is practical to paint your surface the way you wanted it to look while at the same time protecting it against vandalism and pollution.
Does anti graffiti paint work on smooth surfaces too?
Of course! You can use Mavro International's anti graffiti coatings on almost all surfaces. If you are looking for an anti graffiti coating for plastic you could use one of our permanent coatings. There are also semi permanent options that work well on plastic steel and other smooth surfaces. Please write to us if you are in doubt.
Check out our range of anti graffiti paint, permanent anti graffiti coatings and sacrificial coatings that work on almost all porous materials (like natural stone, concrete and masonry) and non porous materials (like plastic, metal and glass), but also on solid core plates, wood and similar substrates. We also offer anti-graffiti products which can be used on sensitive surfaces (GRAFFITIGUARD LITE) and even products that can be applied while it is freezing (GRAFFITIGUARD ICE) Let us know by mail if you need any more information
