It can be confusing trying to decipher how to be an environmentally conscious company and a good corporate citizen when addressing graffiti problems that surround your environment. There are a myriad of anti-graffiti coatings that range from only lasting for one graffiti removal (sacrificial coating) to surviving several graffiti removals (semi-sacrificial) to protecting a surface for many graffiti abatements (non-sacrificial).
When evaluating anti-graffiti coatings consider this, SEI Industrial Chemicals Graffiti Proofer is made in Southern California under the strict rules of the SCAQMD which are arguably the toughest standards in the nation. But when you really drill down to the entire lifecycle of graffiti and how it is dealt with, the Graffiti Proofer GPA-300 environmental footprint is stellar. Sure you may locate a zero VOC product, but if it is a 2 component product, then you expose your personnel to mixing chemicals and many use caustic chemicals as the catalyst.
Why is the Graffiti Proofer the greenest? Because when the permanent non-sacrificial coating is properly applied, it can withstand many graffiti removals for many years. But what really separates it from the pack is that no chemicals are required to perform graffiti removals, thus not exposing maintenance people to harsh chemicals nor increasing the carbon footprint each time a removal is performed. Also, no trips to the paint store to paint over graffiti which once again exposes people to chemicals and increases the environmental impact of your structure.

Graffiti Proofer is a non-sacrificial coating that can be rolled, brushed or sprayed on to numerous surface types. Once the Graffiti Proofer is properly applied to the substrate, protection is in place for years and will withstand numerous graffiti removals without having to use harsh chemicals or damaging the stucco.
