INDUSTRIAL ANTI-GRAFFITI COATINGS

KTX 05 sacrificial coating

Labels Etykieta powłoki antygraffiti KTX 05
Features Water-based, milky, colourlessly drying, microcrystalline wax product. Coating durability: 7 years.
Application For surface protection against graffiti. The coated surface is protected against spray paints, water-based markers, ink, atmospheric pollution, acid rain and moisture.  Used for protection of absorbent and unabsorbent substrates, both smooth and porous, such as sand-lime bricks, ordinary bricks, plaster, concrete, sandstone, paint coatings, steel, aluminium, plastics, ceramics, wood , as well as sculptures, monuments and thermal insulating systems.
Impact On application, KTX 05 accumulates on capillaries and pores’ walls as a separating layer, which makes the surface impermeable to water and hazardous substances and reduces adhesiveness of paints/pigments. KTX 05 is a hydrophobic preparation, has preservative properties as well as UV filters, thanks to which the colour of the protected surface remains unchanged.

How does the KTX 05 work?
The sample pictures below show the difference in effectiveness between removing graffiti from a surface protected by KTX 05 and from a natural, unprotected material.

The Technical Approval required numerous tests of KTX 05, conducted in accordance with the following standards:

  • PN-EN 1062-3:2008 Paints and varnishes – Coating materials and coating systems for exterior masonry and concrete – Part 3: Determination of liquid water permeability.
  • PN-EN 1542:2000 Products and systems for the protection and repair of concrete structures – Test methods – Measurement of bond strength by pull-off.
  • PN-EN 1767:2008 Products and systems for the protection and repair of concrete structures – Test methods – Infrared analysis.
  • PN-EN ISO 2811-1:2012 Paints and varnishes – Determination of density – Part 1: Pycnometer method.
  • PN-EN ISO 3219:2000 Plastics – Polymers/resins in the liquid state or as emulsions or dispersions – Determination of viscosity using a rotational viscometer with defined shear rate.
  • PN-EN ISO 3251:2008 Paints, varnishes and plastics – Determination of non-volatile-matter content.
  • PN-EN ISO 7783:2012 Paints and varnishes – Determination of water-vapour transmission properties – Cup method.
  • PN-EN ISO 9001:2009 Quality management systems – Requirements.
  • ASTM D6578 Standard Practice for Determination of Graffiti Resistance.

The following test procedure were used in the approval process:

  • Test procedure of the Road and Bridge Research Institute: PB/TM-1/13 Assessment of protective coating (or lining) condition after freeze resistance testing.

The following reports of construction product tests were used in the approval procedure:

  • Tests by the Road and Bridge Research Institute, Report of the Road and Bridge Research Institute 2016.
