WACKER, a Munich-based chemical group, will be at the 2017 European Coatings Show presenting its new anti-graffiti concentrate SILRES® BS 710. Formulations based on this product yield a protective silicone film that is long-lasting, elastic and easy to clean. Any graffiti can simply be washed off with water.
Stickers, posters or signs that have been pasted onto walls can easily be removed as well. Coating materials made of SILRES® BS 710 are permeable to water vapour and form a permanent bond with concrete, masonry and natural stone without a primer coat. The product contains no organotin compounds or oximes and is a low solvent formulation. The European Coatings Show will be held in Nuremberg, Germany, from April 4 to 6.
The new anti-graffiti concentrate is a one-part silicone rubber formulation that cures to form a silicone elastomer at room temperature and upon exposure to moisture. The difference between SILRES® BS 710 and traditional silicone-based anti-graffiti coating compounds is its unique formulation concept, which completely eliminates the need for tin catalysts and oxime cross-linkers. Coating materials made from SILRES® BS 710 can be sprayed onto surfaces or applied with a roller or brush. A single treatment is generally enough.
