SEI Industrial Chemicals Anti-Graffiti coating on 24,000 sq ft concrete sound walls

24,450 sq ft of precast concrete sound walls


The City of Sparks, a neighboring city to Reno, NV, utilized SEI Chemical’s anti-graffiti coating technology to protect 24,450FT2 of precast concrete sound walls in September, 2012. The project consisted of (4) individual walls, which would all receive an oxidizing stain treatment before being protected with (1) coat of SEI Sealer Prime followed by (1) coat of GPA-300 Graffiti Proofer®.

Josh Thompson, Civil Engineer for Atkins Global, headed up the project design. The City of Sparks requested Mr. Thompson spec the Graffiti Proofer as the anti-graffiti coating of choice for this project. As a sole-source specification could not be permitted, Mr. Thompson included the following:

Anti-Graffiti Coating shall be Seicoat Graffiti Proofer GPA-300 per NDOT QPL requirements, or approved equal. Alternate submittals will not be considered without meeting the following minimum requirements:

• Graffiti removal by wiping with a dry cloth or with light pressure washing. No release or
cleaning agents required.
• Non-sacrificial, non-yellowing and clear
• Allows expansion and contraction
• Meets the performance requirements of ASTM D6578, Level 10
• Included on Nevada Department of Transportation’s current Qualified Products List

All alternate product submissions ultimately fell short of the requirements and were not approved. The application of the Graffiti Proofer to the Vista sound walls provides the City of Sparks with the largest surface area, in Nevada, which allows graffiti to be removed without using chemicals.

Permanent Graffiti Resistant Coating on Wood, Concrete and Stucco Surfaces- SEI Industrial Chemicals

There are many anti-graffiti coatings available in the marketplace, but once you weed out the sacrificial coatings (lasting only one or a couple of removals) and those that can only adhere to metal or painted substrates, then the field gets less crowded.
If you were to continue with your “wish list” for long-term graffiti protection by adding that the product needs to be low VOC, clear in color, only one component so you do have to mix chemicals together and versatile enough to adhere to many surface types… you’d be gravitating toward SEI Industrial Chemicals Graffiti Proofer.
Just for fun, you should add that the product have excellent non-stick characteristics so those pesky graffiti stickers (a.k.a. “slap tags”) don’t adhere to your surface. While you are at it, why not add to the list that the product should allow you to remove graffiti spray paint, graffiti permanent maker, bubble gum, lipstick and many other types of graffiti by simply wiping it off with a damp towel or using a low pressure wash with no chemicals.
No, this is not fiction! SEI Industrial Chemicals has provided the Graffiti Proofer to many municipalities, property owners/managers, contractors and professionals for years to cover valuable assets like- split face block and cement block sound walls, stucco buildings, brick walls, metal signs and bridges, vinyl wrapped utility boxes, metal painted doors, wood fences, water tanks, fountains, rocks, plastic fire alarm pull covers, newsstands, murals and many more surfaces.
