All substrates can become subject to a graffiti attack. Cleaning graffiti directly from the original surface can be difficult or even harmful to the substrate. The alternative is to apply a transparent anti-graffiti coat onto the surface, such a barrier coat is easier to clean and even offers protection against UV, dirt build-up, carbonation and wear. Based on this concept, Rust-Oleum introduces the GraffitiShield range - A condensed assortment of functional anti-graffiti products for various substrates and conditions that are easy to use and easy to clean. In other words, saving time, money and worry.
Once the packaging has been opened, the product remains effective for approx. 30 minutes. Leaving the product for longer before applying could be detrimental to the product's sheen.

Can the surface once protected with this anti-graffiti coating, be overpainted easily?
Answer from Rawlins’ Technical Team:
In order to ensure good adhesion of any subsequent coatings, Rust-Oleum advise thorough degreasing using a solution of Rust-Oleum Mathys ND14 Cleaner Degreaser, followed by abrading/sanding to provide a suitable physical key prior to paint application.
