Sherwin-Williams Protective & Marine Coatings has introduced 2K Water-Based Urethane Anti-Graffiti, a low VOC (<100 g/L), super hydrophobic polyurethane coating designed for graffiti resistance and simpler graffiti removal.
The two-component coating system is the first to include tintable gloss and satin versions, Sherwin-Williams says.

Requiring only a dry cloth or environmentally friendly citrus cleaner to remove most types of graffiti, the coating is intended to protect bridges, overpasses and railcars, as well as commercial buildings, schools and transit stations, from being permanently defaced with spray paint or markers. Clean-up requires only soap and water.
“A gloss finish isn’t appealing for every surface, so this product provides aesthetic options while maintaining its intrinsic anti-graffiti properties,” said Dee McNeil, Sherwin-Williams Bridge & Highway Market Development Director. The coating can be shaded to almost any color in-store.
McNeil said the coating provided “superior” color and gloss retention and would not fade or chalk over time.
The product comes in pre-measured sizes for easy mixing and can be used on virtually any prepared surface, McNeil said.
2K WB can be applied by brush, roller or airless spray and is formulated for fast drying.
Sherwin-Williams says its anti-graffiti line, which also includes Anti-Graffiti Clear Coat, was introduced to provide an easy-to-use aesthetic coating with superior protection against defacing.
