Description of graffiti removal from roller shutters


(The text is an interpretation of video material)
Graffiti have become a problem No. 1 for both Russia and the rest of the world. Probably, everyone faced such a demonstration of vandalism. Unfortunately, these inscriptions affect the aesthetic image and historical architecture of our city.
MENDELEEV Ltd., research and production company, has developed a line of materials to address this problem. Today we are going to demonstrate how to remove graffiti from roller shutters in a fast, cost-effective and safe manner. The base is grooved metal plates covered with a thin layer of powder paint.
Air temperature today is -4° C.
Approximately half a year has passed after this graffiti was made.

  1. Step We use Old Paint Remover No. 281 to remove graffiti from the roller shutters. The composition does not provoke corrosion as is does not contain neither acids nor alkalis. Spray the remover evenly to a graffiti element, trying not to overrun the picture in order to reduce the consumption rate of Old Paint Remover No. 281.
  2. Step After application, the active solvents of remover disrupt adhesion between a paint coating of roller shutters and a layer of graffiti. Exposure time is several minutes. We see that paint starts growing, or “blistering”.
  3. Step Remove emolliated layer with a rag. It is more convenient to flush the disrupted layer under pressure (using K?rcher-type high-pressure cleaners). Pay attention that metal roller shutters painted with a thin layer of powder paint are not damaged.

Old Paint Remover No. 281 has numerous applications. For example, it can be used to remove adhesive coat left by scotch or advertising posters on different surfaces. Our compound can be used in schools, colleges, local authorities, parks, entertaining centers, shopping malls and other places that face graffiti problems.
Thank you for your attention, we will glad to help you! Let’s make our city clean together!
