Tag Team: Graffiti Removal Technology and Anti-Graffiti Coatings

Although some consider it a form of artistic expression, graffiti can cause physical, financial, and even emotional damages to a building, its owners, and its occupants. Join us in this one-hour course as we discuss graffiti removal, such as mechanical, abrasive, and chemical techniques, as well as anti-graffiti coatings. By the end of this course, design professionals will be able to evaluate graffiti removal techniques and anti-graffiti coatings and specify the techniques and products that best fit the project’s needs.

Learning Objectives: 
  1. Discuss graffiti, including general definitions and types, as well as the environmental and emotional damage it can cause to buildings, owners, and occupants
  2. Categorize graffiti removal techniques into mechanical, abrasive, and chemical and discuss common challenges to graffiti removal including environmental concerns
  3. Evaluate anti-graffiti coatings on their performance, sustainability, and safety for installers, occupants, and the environment
  4. Apply knowledge when choosing and specifying graffiti removal techniques to ensure they fit the project’s needs, especially in order to protect community aesthetics
