I have used the Enamogrip Clear by Superior Products International II for the past 10+ years now and although it certainly isn't the cheapest on the market it so far has been the most effective I have come across. After 10 years I see applications that look like they were done yesterday as it is also UV stable. We have coated over concrete, drywall, steel substrates and wood. One application in particular is on the outside brick wall of a police station. They wanted to set an example of an area often hit hard by graffiti by taking preventative action. With the coating in place it is much easier to remove the graffiti. Another recent application is on some First Nation wood carvings which have been subject to paintball attacks. The coating prevents the paint from entering the pores of the wood substrate allowing for minimal maintenance.
