TK Products offer two kinds of financially and physically manageable solutions to chronic graffiti problems. Wherever community residents land on the spectrum of graffiti—“fools’ faces” vs “environmental art of the future”—public planners, managers and contractors agree that graffiti-removal adds another heavy layer of labor-, money- and time-draining maintenance to already-overburdened facility upkeep. TK Products give two kinds of low-VOC protection against chronic graffiti problems: a surface coating for masonry block and other porous concretes, and a penetrating repellent for harder, denser concrete surfaces and structures. Both product lines reduce the visual assault on those spending time in parking facilities, transportation hubs, public plazas and recreation areas, while also helping to preserve the physical integrity of large, heavily-used essential community structures and spaces.
TK BLOCK AND GRAFFITI GUARD VOC 5220 is a clear silicone elastomer, designed to protect porous concrete surfaces from both harsh weather damage and graffiti vandalism. One or more spray-, roller- or brush-coats seal up surface porosity, reducing graffiti adhesion and making it easy to remove with clear water and compatible cleaners.
TK-PERMACLEAN VOC ANTI-GRAFFITI COATING repels graffiti head-on with a specialized blend of aliphatic urethane resins. Designed to protect harder, denser surfaces, it qualifies as a permanent, non-sacrificial coating. A related primer reduces yellowing or darkening capacities.
Look at TK solutions when your department spends more time discussing overpasses and sound barriers than the roads they shelter; building-walls than the schools, parks and playgrounds they overlook; and the structures where public transportation stops more than where you can go. Graffiti artists may have all the time in the world, but you and your residents don’t. When graffiti loses, your whole community wins.
