eBook Tackles Graffiti Solutions


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.)

The articles focus on how and which coatings can be a cost-effective tool for fighting graffiti on commercial and public structures and transportation.

From Costs to Cleanup

The eBook features these articles:

  • "Graffiti Costs and Cleanup: How Coatings Can Help";
  • "New Weapons in the Graffiti Wars";
  • "Greener Gambits in the Anti-Graffiti Game";
  • "Specialty Coatings";
  • "Durability: Rules of the Graffiti Game"; and
  • "Anti-Graffiti Coatings: Taking Aim against Tagging."

The authors include experts from Atlas Material Testing Technology and Bayer MaterialScience.

The volume is sponsored by Coatings for Industry Inc.
