X-Graf®thermoset powder coatings
The anti-graffiti thermoset powder solution
Graffiti and other attacks with paint are initially considered to be mere nuisances. However, repeated cleanings of popular targets can result in considerable long-term damage to the substrate and exorbitant cleaning or reconstruction costs year after year.
X-GRAF® is a patented thermoset powder coating solution used to produce surface finishes which, when the proper cleaning technology is used, are nearly immune to all types of graffiti.
The polyurethane-based coating has been designed to withstand numerous clean-ups, and its appearance will be virtually unaltered, even after use of a chemical cleaner.
The increased toughness of X-GRAF® also offers a high level of scratch and abrasion resistance making it an ideal coating for any article subject to graffiti damage.
- Easy-to-clean properties to protect surfaces from the permanent effects of spray paint and markers.
- Good weatherability for outdoor use.
