One of the latest innovations from Sika is the introduction of SikaGard-850 AG (Anti-Graffiti), a permanent anti-graffiti and anti-fly poster coating for the protection of concrete, wood, masonry and metal substrates.
SikaGard®-850 AG can be used for treating new and refurbished buildings, bridges and other structures to protect them from vandalism and unauthorised artwork for a permanent solution. Also, once treated, the coating offers 100% prevention of any posters being stuck on the treated surface.
Thanks to the product’s unique characteristics, graffiti can be removed numerous times without damaging the protection layer on the surface of the substrate. No chemical agent is required for the cleaning of graffiti; one can simply use cold high-pressure water (80 to 100 bars) or even a standard hose coupled by rubbing down the surface with a suitable cloth or stiff brush.
After cleaning, there is no need for product maintenance and refresher coats.
SikaGard®-850 AG provides a clear wet-look surface with high gloss retention, brightening and enhancing the colour of the substrate, and preventing dirt pick-up. It is water permeable with low water absorption, and therefore provides excellent weather and ageing resistance against exterior elements such as rain, sun, ultraviolet (UV) and temperature extremes.
Typical areas of application:
• Fair-faced concrete.
• Mineral substrate previously treated with hydrophobic impregnation.
• Metallic surfaces.
• Wooden surfaces.
