How to protect painted surfaces from graffiti

Our first golden rule of graffiti protection is - The best coating for paint is paint. 

Although it’s possible to remove larger graffiti from a painted surface, it is often far quicker and easier to simply color match and paint over. Smaller graffiti can be easily removed with our Sensitive Surface Graffiti Remover or Graffiti ‘Safewipes’, without the need for specialized protective coatings. Some inks, dyes, boot polish and especially red spray cans can occasionally stain/burn into paintwork. These types of stains can be removed with Feltpen Fadeout
