2K WB Urethane Anti-Graffiti from Sherwin-Williams Offers Both Gloss and Satin Finish Options

Easy-to-use waterborne anti-graffiti polyurethane coating offers two finish options and excellent color and finish retention

CLEVELAND (October 10, 2011) – Sherwin-Williams Protective & Marine Coatings introduces 2K Water based Urethane Anti-Graffiti, a low VOC (<100 g/L), super hydrophobic polyurethane coating that provides excellent graffiti resistance and simplifies graffiti removal. This new, easy-to-use coating system is the first in the industry to include tintable gloss and satin versions, attractive for virtually any surface.

Requiring only a dry cloth or environmentally friendly citrus cleaner to remove most types of graffiti, the coating is intended to protect bridges, overpasses and railcars, as well as commercial buildings, schools and transit stations, from being permanently defaced with spray paint or markers. Because the product is water based, applicators need only soap and water to clean up after application.  

“A gloss finish isn’t appealing for every surface, so this product provides aesthetic options while maintaining its intrinsic anti-graffiti properties,” said Dee McNeil, Sherwin-Williams Bridge & Highway Market Development Director. “With superior color and gloss retention, the coating won’t fade or chalk over time. Also, it’s easy to use – the product comes in pre-measured sizes for easy mixing and can be used on virtually any prepared surface.”  

Fast-drying and versatile for maintenance crews to use, it can be applied by brush, roller or airless spray. Additionally, the coating can be shaded to almost any color in-store, providing a wide range of color options.   

Sherwin-Williams’ Anti-Graffiti line was introduced to provide an easy-to-use but yet aesthetic coating with superior protection against defacing. 2K WB Urethane Anti-Graffiti joins Anti-Graffiti Clear Coat in a product line that is available via the coatings industry’s broadest distribution system.
