The latest tools and technologies to fight the multibillion-dollar epidemic of graffiti defacing U.S. buildings and infrastructure are the topic of a free new resource by Durability + Design Magazine.

Selecting and Specifying Anti-Graffiti Coatings is a 37-page compilation of expert-written articles on attacking graffiti, a problem that strains budgets and spreads blight nationwide. (The Michigan Department of Transportation spends $500,000 a year on graffiti cleanup in Detroit alone, one expert reports.)
