Clear Coats Join Anti-Graffiti System

PPG Industries has introduced two new anti-graffiti clear coatings that are designed to be used in a system with the company's proprietary cleaner.

The system allows most stains to be removed in 10 minutes or less, according to PPG.

The new Duranar GR and Coraflon GR coatings provide a clear, graffiti-resistant barrier over the pigmented color layer of the coating.

If the coating is spray-painted or marred, it can be cleaned by applying the company's Duraprep Prep 400 graffiti remover. After the solution sits on the stain for 10 to 60 seconds, it can be wiped with a clean cloth or scrubbed with a nylon brush.

When applied over either Duranar GR or Coraflon GR, Duraprep Prep 400 can remove graffiti, overspray and other substances from buildings, according to PPG.

When applied on either Duranar GR or Coraflon GR, Duraprep Prep 400 can also remove paint overspray, pen and marker ink, lipstick, scuff marks, tape residue, bugs, tar and many other substances that mar the appearance of commercial buildings, according to PPG.

PPG says it believes the anti-graffiti system is the only one sold and tested by the same company.

$25B Problem

Graffiti costs U.S. commercial building owners $25 billion per year, according to Scott Moffatt, PPG's marketing director for coil and extrusion coatings. The new coatings add a graffiti-resistant product to the well-established Duranar and Coraflon fluoropolymer lines, from PPG's industrial coatings business.

“The added ability to use these coatings as part of a graffiti-resistant system will make them even more valuable and versatile,” said Moffatt.

Duranar GR coatings are available in a variety of low and medium glosses; Coraflon GR coatings are for high-gloss applications.

Can't find product data or MSDS...is this a single component?, two components?, .......hard to get an idea about the product with so litte information available, specially when health concerns for the applicator and the public are at the front end of my government agency.......

I am puzzled by the statement "PPG says it believes the anti-graffiti system is the only one sold and tested by the same company." - I know at least two other manufacturers who perform inhouse testing on the antigraffiti that they sell.

We have asked PPG to respond to these questions and comments.


Comment from Scott Moffatt, (11/21/2013, 4:05 PM)

The clear coats are factory applied, high bake systems used on coil coating lines and spray applied aluminum extrusion coating lines for the building market. The Duraprep anti-graffiti remover can be purchased through PPG stores nationwide. The comment we made "the anti-graffiti system is the only one sold and tested by the same company" was stated because we sell both products, the factory applied clears and the aftermarket graffiti remover. We have the capability of understanding both products and making them work together to remove graffiti.
