Anti Graffiti paint

“Permashield premium,” by Monopole, a locally manufactured, zero VOC, Water based, FDA approved, anti graffiti is the best that I have found available on the market to day.  And that’s amazing as I usually find that the good stuff is always manufactured some where else, like Europe and hard to get.

 I have been experimenting with the different Monopole products now for about a year and have subjected them to some rigorous testing. The Perma Shield premium is the top of the line coating Anti graffiti coating that has been approved as the only produt to use by several different orginizations.

There are two types of anti Graffiti coatings; one is referred to as sacrificial meaning it comes off easily and so when you have been tagged you easily wash off the tag job and a layer of paint which is designed to come off easily. As you might imagine you have to then re-coat the wall with the sacrificial paint. The paint is inexpensive but your labor may not be.

  The other type of anti Graffiti coating is so hard that the spray paint doesn’t stick. And that’s a hard finish! When our 15 year old, intellectually challenged Einstein has nothing better to do than express himself on the side of your building. You simply wash it off.

 So the next question become how long does it last?

 On a wall that was properly prepped primed and coated I have seen the Perma Shield last for 200 scrubbings. I have seen other brands begin to break down in less than 5 scrubbings, despite there PR and advertising. (Names with held to hide the guilty, and spare me from law suits)

 This is also the only product that the LA school district has approved for its walls

 This product is FDA approve for use in food coating area as well.

 I’m going to be running a new category on Anti Graffiti coatings and would like to have commentary from customers and users alike on this matter.

 As you might imagine I sell this product and would be happy to come out and see your application and or help you with your needs.

 I would like to have some more testimonials with pictures of people using this product and or any other product that works well as an anti Graffiti coating.

As and independent paint and coatings sales Rep I have to know what it is that I’m selling to people and businesses Shameful to say I have had a lot of salesmen miss inform me about there products so long ago I began doing my own testing to see what really worked and what didn’t. Coatings, any coating whether on industrial steel or on fin furniture do two things, they protect what ever it is they are covering and they add an aesthetic. Lacquers are primarily aesthetic.  Anti Graffiti coatings are for protection.
