PPG introduces graffiti-resistant coatings

09 December 2013

PPG Industries’ industrial coatings business has introduced Duranar GR and Coraflon GR coatings, which feature a clear, graffiti-resistant barrier over the pigmented colour layer of the coating. If the coating is spray-painted or otherwise marred, it can be cleaned by applying Duraprep Prep 400 graffiti remover by PPG. After the solution has been allowed to dwell on the stain for 10-60sec, it can be wiped with a clean cloth or scrubbed with a nylon brush. Most stains can be removed in 10min or less.

When applied on either Duranar GR or Coraflon GR clear coatings, Duraprep Prep 400 field-applied graffiti remover eradicates graffiti as well as paint overspray, pen and marker ink, scuff marks, tape residue, tar and other substances that mar the appearance of buildings. It is believed to be the only graffiti-resistant coating system sold and tested by the same company.

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