As a result of scientific research based on many years of testing our own and other companies' anti-graffiti coatings, we drew the conclusion that the most versatile agent which meets clients' expectations should present the following properties:
surface protection just a few hours after application,
durability up to 100 washings,
environment-friendliness - does not require application of specialist chemicals based on solvents, acids etc.,
safety during graffiti removal - application of solvents, acids etc. hazardous to respiratory system, skin and eyes is not necessary,
safety in haulage- does not require compliance with restrictive regulations regarding haulage of hazardous substances,
anti-poster effect - tapes and glues for posters do not stick to protected surface.
Keeping these assumptions in mind, we have developed an exceptional KTX 07 coating, thanks to which the graffiti is removed by means of clean water or water with addition of dishwashing liquid! KTX 07 anti-graffiti coating has the IBDiM approval, i.e. a national document, which authorizes application of KTX 07, on e.g. engineering objects or in underground railway systems. Obtaining the approval for KTX 07 required meeting a number of standards:
