In September 2006, we received official approval from Deutsche Bahn for the application of the G-Shield™ anti-graffiti coating to the exterior and interior of their trains to stop increasing graffiti damage. Since then, numerous regional and high speed trains have been coated with G-Shield™.
The German national railway searches for relief from graffiti vandalism
A serious graffiti problem in 2005 cost Deutsche Bahn $77 million to repair affected trains from graffiti damage. The need for resistance against such vandalism was addressed by the treatment of the train interior and exterior with G-Shield™ anti-graffiti coating.
The G-Shield™ solution for graffiti protection
Deutsche Bahn found G-Shield™ to be extremely economical; just one gallon can coat 2000-3000 square feet. Bright and matte versions were used for different degrees of gloss.
The innovative chemistry behind G-Shield™ repels graffiti and soil
The high performance of G-Shield, for the removal of graffiti and heavy soiling, is based on two effects: first, the low surface energy of the coatings, which repels any kind of graffiti, markers, or ink. The second is the highly cross-linked network that is formed during curing, which prevents graffiti from penetrating into the layer. Combined, G-Shield™ protects the paint and lacquer underneath.
*G-Shield™ is sold under the tradename Tutoprom® in Europe.
