The Si-Coat # 529 (colored) and the # 531(Clear) are a permanent (non-sacrificial) single coat anti-graffiti protective coating suitable for use over metal, concrete, brick, stone, wood, fiberglass and pre-existing coatings. The # 529 can be applied directly to cover most existing graffiti and protect against future attacks. The # 531 Clear works extremely well to cover surfaces not already damaged with graffiti or where the existing color is to be maintained. The clear coating may display a ‘wet look' once applied and cured.
By allowing internal moisture to diffuse out and exterior water to be repelled, the coating also helps to protect the substrate from weather damage. Both coatings are ideally suited to be applied to fresh concrete as a sealer, which will save in time, labor and material costs.
Both products are a single component, room temperature vulcanizing (RTV), moisture cure polysiloxane chemistry that provides excellent durability and long term performance. Preparation work prior to application usually requires only a power washing of the surface area to be treated, let dry and then apply the coating. It is as easy as 1, 2, 3. No sandblasting is required. Application temperature must be 5 degrees C or higher and the coating will provide full protection after 6 to 8 hours of being applied.
Due to the hydrophobicity of both products, graffiti tagging can easily be removed with plain cold water and a low pressure (1200 PSI) power washer. The anti-graffiti coatings are guaranteed for 5 years and will take multiple washings without any damage to the protective coating.
The CSL coatings have been tested to all the necessary ASTM requirements, QUV testing and have passed and meet all required specifications. (Copies of those test results are available upon request.)
