Valspar Develops Graffiti-resistant System to Protect Coil and Extrusion Building Products

Valspar announces that it has developed an ASTM-compliant graffiti-resistant system, which has been tested and approved for all Valspar Coil and Extrusion building products. With communities around the world affected by defacement, graffiti resistance and removal solutions are needed more than ever. Valspar has aligned with Graffiti Removal Services (GRS) to create a sustainable, cost-effective system.

“We undertook this project to ensure that our customers’—and everyone throughout the value chain—performance and restoration needs are met for the life of our products,” says Jeff Alexander vice president of sales for Valspar. “As incidences of graffiti continue to rise across the country, municipalities are adopting policies that require rapid graffiti removal—the Valspar Graffiti Resistant system will allow our customers to meet those requirements with the products they already know and trust.”

The robust properties of Valspar’s coatings combined with the innovative cleaning system provided by GRS means that this solution not only applies to future projects, but to existing installations with Valspar coatings. GRS’s non-toxic products use a brush-on, wipe-off application with no dwell time to quickly and effectively remove graffiti without damaging the underlying Valspar coating. The water-soluble, biodegradable cleaning system is easy to use and gives maintenance professionals a powerful tool in the fight against graffiti.

“The combination of our high-performance coatings and Graffiti Removal Services’ tested and approved environmentally safe cleaning system can help save building owners significant costs of repainting or replacing panels,” Alexander continues. “We are pleased to work with Graffiti Removal Services to offer our customers a fast and cost-effective removal solution.”
