Environment, Health & Safety
Our graffiti coating is easy on the environment.
What a concept.
Hard on graffiti. Easy on the environment.
The G-Shield™ product line is specifically formulated in accordance with current governmental VOC, greenhouse emissions, flammability and toxicity standards.
G-Shield™ coatings have been specifically formulated with the environment in mind. The solvents used to formulate the G-Shield™ coatings meet both the EPA VOC regulations and the CARB emissions regulations.
VOC is negligible for all products.
Toxicity and Flammability
In testing performed by an independent laboratory, it was found that a G-Shield™ coated surface does not support combustion. Additionally, in the event of a fire, no toxic gases are released from the G-Shield™ coating. The full results are below.
