When Powder Coating Still Isn’t Enough Graffiti Resistance- SEI Industrial Chemicals

Parks & Rec ornamental gates


Many metal painted surfaces are “powder coated” which is typically used to create a hard finish that is tougher than conventional paint. Metal park benches, newspaper stands and painted metal gates are just a few examples. The disappointing thing about a powder coated surface is that it is usually subjected to spray paint graffiti, permanent markers and graffiti stickers (a.k.a. “Slap Tags”) and other forms of graffiti. Once “tagged”, minimal to moderate success at removing graffiti is achieved. Even more frustrating is that, by the nature of design, powder coatings can be very difficult to apply a “top coat” anti-graffiti product over.

The SEI Graffiti Proofer single component non-sacrificial graffiti resistant coating has experienced much success over a myriad of powder coated surfaces like the attached ornamental gates.
