The Problem

The paints and inks contained in spray cans penetrate the porosity of the materials, making their subsequent elimination particularly difficult. The indiscriminate use of machinery capable of removing graffiti with a mechanical action often causes alterations or damage to the treated materials, with serious damage from corrosion or abrasion.

At the same time, the increasing number of urban regeneration interventions have created the need to protect street art works in our cities from normal wear and tear and vandalism.

The Solution

For the removal of vandal attacks CIR has formulated specific removers that can dissolve the pigments of the paints used. Thanks to their gel phase they allow you to act on the support gradually and with long contact times,so you can also intervene on paints layered over time.

Subsequently, the surfaces exposed to the risk of contamination must be appropriately protected with specific products capable of preventing the paints from penetrating into the porosity thanks to the formation of a diaphragm between the material and the external environment.
