Resene Uracryl GraffitiShieldUnsightly graffiti is a nightmare for property managers in graffiti prone areas. Worst of all, not only does it look bad and cost money to fix, but the longer you leave it the more likely it will attract more graffiti.

Traditionally anti-graffiti protective coatings have been full of solvents. Keen to provide a lower VOC option, Resene has developed Resene Uracryl GraffitiShield, a high performance waterborne two pack urethane designed to provide a clear protective finish as a defence against graffiti. Once cured, if graffiti does occur, it can be removed using Resene Graffiti Cleaner without the need to repaint the area. Ideal for use on businesses, homes and buildings that are prone to graffiti.

Resene Graffiti Cleaner is formulated for effective and easy removal of graffiti and is very effective against common materials used for graffiti, such as spray paint, inks, crayons and lipsticks.

Graffiti is often called a gateway crime – left unaddressed, taggers often progress to more serious crimes, so it pays to have an anti-graffiti plan in place to tackle any graffiti promptly otherwise the problem will likely escalate.

See Resene Data Sheet RA58 for more information on Resene Uracryl GraffitiShield.

When developing a design for graffiti prone areas also consider:

  • Planting shrubs or a tree against walls and fences exposed to tagging or plant climbing shrubs or hedges. Species with prickles provide additional protection.
  • Painting fences and walls standard colours because unpainted fences act as magnets to taggers.
  • Installing security nightlights in possible graffiti prone areas. Lights with motion sensors are a popular choice as they only activate when a person approaches.
