Graffiti is a social problem as well as property vandalism.
All the best research indicates that it’s vital to remove graffiti as soon as possible. This serves two purposes – it discourages the perpetrators as their “art” is either not seen at all or for only a short time, and it gives a strong message that people care about their properties and their communities. As Malcolm Gladwell in The Tipping Point demonstrated in New York City, if a community cares about itself the number of crimes committed (including graffiti vandalism) reduces.
All of Coval coatings provide exceptional non-sacrificial anti-graffiti protection.
Coval Anti-Graffiti Coat is best suited for smooth and non-porous surfaces and silicone-free plastic. It’s ideal for signs.
Coval’s Anti-Graffiti Coat, because it is so very easy to clean, is the ideal product to discourage taggers. Coval’s Anti-Graffiti can be cleaned hundreds of times with a variety of mild cleaners. Permanent marker can be removed with water and a sponge. The substrate won’t be damaged by repeated cleaning and the coating will last for many years and multiple cleans. While the graffiti coating itself should be applied by a professional applicator, the cleaning can be done by the property owner or manager.
Coval’s Anti-Graffiti Coat is a revolutionary improvement on anything else on the market. The molecules in Coval’s Anti-Graffiti cross-link to form a covalent bond which creates a barrier between graffiti and the substrate below.
This product is environmentally-friendly and not only does the job, it extends the life of the substrate as well. Using Coval Anti-Graffiti Coat will eliminate the need for costly repainting, repairs and labor-intensive cleaning. So it’s cost-effective as well. You couldn’t really ask for anything more – could you?
Tough, durable, environmentally sound and free of carcinogens
In ASTM Taber Abrasive test D-3363, Coval scored 39.11; on the Rockwell Scale it scored 70-75 and on the Mohs Scale 7-7.5. A diamond is 100 on the Rockwell Scale and 10 on the Mohs. This means the coatings have a high resistance to usual wear and tear. With less than 100g/L VOC it outperforms the most stringent air-quality controls in the US. Coval also measures as being carcinogen free as defined by California Prop 65.
