The first is Timonox Graffiti Remover, a fast acting, environmentally-friendly spray solution that will effectively remove unsightly graffiti from walls and ceilings wherever Timonox Anti-Graffiti Flame Retardant Glaze has been used as a protective top coat. Crown Trade’s high performance glaze with its non-sacrificial eggshell finish is used extensively in communal areas of multi-occupancy premises, applied over Timonox Vinyl Matt to maintain the fire retardancy of the paint system.
When vandals strike and leave their ‘artwork’ and ‘tags’ on glazed surfaces the graffiti can be quickly and easily removed by applying the Graffiti Remover to the defaced area, leaving for one or two minutes and wiping clean with a damp cloth. The spray provides a non-toxic, non-hazardous way to remove graffiti created with aerosols, paints, crayons and marker pens. It can be used time and time again even in areas where there are recurring defacement problems, without compromising the fire protection of the underlying flame retardant coating system. Timonox Graffiti Remover may also be used on a number of other graffiti defaced surfaces such as glass, brick, plastics but a test area is recommended first.
Graffiti is just one of the many problems that can be eliminated with the second new product, Crown Trade Timonox Bonding Primer. This is a 2010-compliant, low VOC water-based primer that will effectively prepare new and old surfaces such as plaster cement, concrete and old paintwork for decorative Timonox coatings to be applied. It provides a high level of obliteration and will permanently hold back awkward residual stains such as smoke, old watermarks and many types of graffiti, preventing bleed into the new finish coat. Applied by brush, roller or spray and delivering a spreading rate of up to 12m2 the new primer is easily applied. It has such a high level of adhesion that it can even be used to prepare surfaces which have previously been protected with Timonox Anti-Graffiti Flame Retardant Glaze for further redecoration.
