Nevada DOT Approves Seicoat Anti-Graffiti Coatings

March 16, 2010

A line of anti-graffiti coatings from Seicoat Corporation was approved and added to the Qualified Products List by the State of Nevada Department of Transportation (DOT). The products include GPA-200 Graffiti Proofer Anti-Stick and GPA-300 Graffiti Proofer Non-Stick anti-graffiti coatings. The firm responsible for introducing the coatings to Nevada State officials is Seicoat Reno, the first Nevada franchisee for Seicoat Corporation with headquarters in Los Angeles. The GPA-200 coating is durable and causes most paints to simply run off the film, according to the company. The GPA-300 product allows anyone to remove graffiti with a dry cloth or water rinse without the use of any cleaning chemicals. These are the only anti-graffiti coatings approved by the Nevada DOT that are single component. The Graffiti Proofer coatings are sold by or can be applied by registered affiliate entities or certified applicators authorized by the company’s franchising program. Acc­ording to Seicoat, recent growth has been spurred by its offer to remove any and all graffiti, free of charge, for up to three years, if Seicoat is contracted to apply its Graffiti Proofer coatings to the substrates chosen. This offer is making municipalities and other agencies take notice as a way of reducing maintenance budgets. The Graffiti Proofer coatings are clear, UV stable, chemical and abrasion resistant and provide true non-stick surfaces that resist paint, permanent markers, stickers and adhesives. The products incorporate a nanotechnological constituent that both penetrates the surface and builds a durable non-stick and chemically resistant film. Further, the products are non-toxic, environmentally friendly, non-reactive and VOC, AQMD and CARB compliant.
