Cleaning graffiti from the exterior of buildings, walls, pavements and from the inside of public areas, stations, tunnels, schools and much more costs millions of pounds every year. It’s unlikely that graffiti will stop any time soon, but Rawlins Paints can help prevent any damage with our range of anti-graffiti coatings, paints and products.
Anti-graffiti coatings are preventative paints that work to stop inks, aerosols and other markings bonding to the surface. Sometimes referred to as anti-vandal paints, these anti-graffiti products can be used internally and externally on a wide range of different surfaces, including previously painted surfaces, bare surfaces, smooth surfaces like metal and plastic, porous surfaces like brick and stonework.
We know the finish is just as important as the anti-graffiti properties of the paint, coating or lacquer, so we have various primers that will prevent the surface from ending up darker or having a ‘wet look’ after painting. We also stock adhesion primers for tricky surfaces and nano-technology coatings for when you only want to apply a very thin film of coating.
Our anti-graffiti products complement our range of anti-climb and anti-vandal products, which all work together to protect and maintain the surface of any building, wall, floor or any other substrate that needs protecting.
We carry various anti-graffiti primers and sealers, including our transparent sealer for porous surfaces, such as brick walls. It should be used before you apply our Clear Graffiti Coating to make sure the finish won’t be dark or wet-looking. The system will ensure that the appearance of the surface isn’t altered when you’ve completed the project.
For smooth, dense materials, such as metals and powder-coated surfaces, we recommend our Clear Adhesion Primer. Use this before applying our Clear Graffiti Coating and its light corrosion-inhibiting properties will make sure the coatings bond together to do their job well. Use as a spray anti-graffiti primer or stick with a brush or if you prefer for a rust-free, graffiti free surface. It can be applied to galvanised steel, tiles and glass as well.
Graffiti Magic also offers a Non-Darkening Sealer and an Adhesion Promoter, both of which work in a similar way. Coo-Var Anti-Graffiti Sealer Coat is also a clear sealer for porous surfaces, designed to be used in conjunction with Coo-Var Graffiti & Flyposting Protection Paint, which is a technologically advanced clear coating that gives long term protection against damage caused by graffiti and posters.
Graffiti Magic Clear Anti-Graffiti Coating can be used on exterior surfaces that are vulnerable to the threat of vandalism, including concrete walls, render, timber, metal cladding and most previously painted surfaces. Guaranteed to make the surfaces easy to clean and with amazing longevity, Graffiti Magic is a fast-drying anti-graffiti paint that comes in either a matt or gloss finish.
In the same category, we also stock Mathys Pegagraff Hydro, which can be used to protect a range of bare or previously painted substrates. The clear anti-graffiti glaze can be used on floors, walls and any other surface that may be under attack from graffiti, and can be easily cleaned afterwards.
Rust-Oleum GraffitiShield Hydro works well on natural stone, all porous mineral surfaces, brickwork and concrete. Waterproof and UV resistance, it is virtually invisible and gives a permanent anti-graffiti coating that can stand up to repeated cleaning. As it’s so resistant to solvents and chemicals it will stay intact even after graffiti has been cleaned off. We recommend using Rust-Oleum GraffitiShield Cleaner with Hydro.
We also stock the perfect tool to apply Rust-Oleum GraffitiShield Hydro and Rust-Oleum GraffitiSheld Wax – the GraffitiShield Spray Pump. Also by Rust-Oleum, the spray pump allows you to apply the anti-graffiti spray paint quickly and cleanly, with minimal wastage.
Blackfriar Professional Anti-Graffiti Lacquer is a clear anti-graffiti coating for external surfaces and can be used on wood, brick, concrete and stone. Once applied, it will allow for easy removal of graffiti, whether it’s permanent marker, conventional paint or aerosol.
We stock Coo-Var’s specific Anti-Graffiti Kit, which contains everything you need to protect surfaces from graffiti. An easy to use kit with full instructions on how to prepare, mix and apply the coating to provide a long lasting graffiti-protective finish. Ideal for small projects inside or outside, it will cover an area of 14-18 square metres with one coat and cuts out all the hassle of searching for individual products.
Graffiti Magic Gum Magic is a coating specifically developed to stop chewing gum from sticking, and also prevents water and liquid penetrating the surface. Starting off as a yellow liquid, it ends as a transparent finish leaving the surface unchanged, yet leaving protection that will last many years. It’s for use on exterior walls, stone, paving, patios, pedestrian areas and car parks and can also be used on stone flooring, floor tiles and more.
Graffiti Magic Poster Magic, on the other hand, is formulated to protect surfaces from fly posters and graffiti. Posters just can’t stick for long to surfaces treated with this product, and if they do they can be removed quickly and easily without having to use a scraper, solvent or water. Specifically designed to be used on street furniture that is prone to fly posters, such as traffic lights, lamp posts, benches, junction boxes and street lighting. It can be used on a lot of surfaces but if you’re not sure, make sure you check with our Technical Team before purchase.
