Cortec launches spray can graffiti remover
Abandoned barrack exterior covered with graffiti
Manufacturer of corrosion protection solutions Cortec Corporation has unveiled its new tool for graffiti removal, the EcoAir Graffiti Remover.
EcoAir Graffiti Remover enhanced with nano VpCI technology is a semi-viscous liquid used to remove graffiti, inks, and paints from metal, concrete, and wood. The liquid contains a corrosion inhibiting compound to prevent flash rusting and discolouration of metal surfaces after graffiti removal.
The property owner or maintenance worker can carry a can of EcoAir Graffiti Remover to the site of vandalism and spray it in an even layer over the graffiti in order to clean the markings off the surface. Bag-on-valve EcoAir spray can technology allows the graffiti remover to be sprayed 6-8 inches (15-20 cm) from the surface, making it easier to apply in difficult to reach areas.
According to Coretc, EcoAir Graffiti Remover has a smooth flowing gel that helps achieve complete coverage for vertical surfaces or surfaces of varying geometry. After the product is sprayed on the surface and allowed to penetrate graffiti or unwanted markings for 3 to 30 minutes (depending on the strength of the graffiti), the surface can be scraped clean while rinsing with water.
EcoAir Graffiti Remover has a relatively low level of toxicity and does not rely on some of the typical chemicals used for stripping such as methylene chloride, chlorinated solvents, methanol, toluene, and acetone, the company says.
It has a low odour and is free of ketones, chromates, and phenols. Because it is packaged in an environmentally-friendly EcoAir bag-on-valve spray can, it dispenses the product by compressed air without the use of CFC or HCFC propellants that would affect the ozone layer. The steel can is recyclable.
