Published on 2013-01-29. Author : SpecialChem

Even though it can be seen as a form of street art, for many communities graffiti vandalism is a huge problem, causing significant visual and financial damage as well as time consuming efforts of removal.

Cortec® launches the best anti-graffiti application available on the market - MCI® Wall Defense, a clear, silicone elastomer based anti-graffiti coating that can be applied to exterior concrete, masonry or metal surfaces.

MCI® Wall Defense is designed to be used over various types of surfaces that are coated or uncoated. Any tagging can be immediately removed by rinsing off with a cold water pressure cleaning. It is as simple as that!

This permanent coating does not need to be reapplied after graffiti removal like alternative sacrificial systems. When it comes to protecting the nation's roadways, bridges, railcars, and other publicly or privately owned spaces from painted vandalism, Cortec's MCI® Wall Defense is the absolute best choice on the market, combining patented MCI (Migrating Corrosion Inhibitor) technology, superior effectiveness and simple and economical application.

Typical applications include: DOT, schools and universities, port authorities, transit authorities, transportation - railcars, parking decks, urban commercial properties and many more.

MCI® Wall Defense can be recoated over itself, while other coatings, tagging, or graffiti will not stick. MCI® Wall Defense resistance starts to work 24 hours after coating. Substrates protected are concrete, masonry, metal and wood.
