An EV anti-graffiti coating is a coating that prevents graffiti paint from bonding to surfaces.
Cleaning graffiti off buildings costs billions of dollars annually. Many cities have started anti-graffiti programs but vandalism is still a problem.
Companies across the globe are attempting to develop coatings to prevent vandals from defacing public and private property.
The coatings being developed can be the paint itself, or a clear coat added on top of existing paint or building facades. Depending on the substrate and the severity of graffiti, different coatings give different benefits and disadvantages.
Anti-graffiti coatings can be invisible to the naked eye. There are two different categories of anti-graffiti coatings. The first, sacrificial coatings, are applied to a surface and then removed when graffiti is applied.
The surface underneath will be left clean and a new sacrificial coating can be applied. The other type of coating are permanent coatings that prevent graffiti from adhering to a surface in the first place.
Newer coatings are made of charged polymeric materials that form a gel on the surface of the building or substrate.
The use of anti-graffiti barrier coatings to protect graffiti-prone historic buildings, monuments, and other culturally-sensitive surfaces may seem to be an easy solution to a persistent problem.
Research suggests that the application of such coatings can cause physical or aesthetic changes or otherwise damage historic substrates.
The Global EV Anti-graffiti coating market accounted for $XX Billion in 2022 and is anticipated to reach $XX Billion by 2030, registering a CAGR of XX% from 2023 to 2030.
New Additive Provides Improved Graffiti Resistance and an Easy-To-Clean Surface
Highly functionalized surface additives can provide industrial coatings and printing inks with a durable, lubricant surface that is easy to clean.
Siloxane-based additives play a major role in the performance of many of these high-performance formulations. The use of organo-modified polysiloxanes in surface additives is growing beyond the typical applications in wetting agents and defoamers.
Due to their unique interfacial activity, modified siloxanes are invaluable ingredients that promote smooth film surfaces by improving leveling and minimizing craters.
This also results in functional surface properties such as slip or easy-to-clean effects. Details of the chemistry and resulting performance attributes of a new, highly compatible, organo-modified, highly functional siloxane-based ETC additive (OHSA) are present.
