Graffiti Protection of Stainless Steel

Lamp PostS Brighton (England)

Situated on the Brighton sea front, less than 50 metres away from the shore, lamp post number 5 suffered from tea staining, corrosion, browning, pitting, graffiti and stickers. Graffiti and stickers were removed firstly and stainless steel was deep cleaned prior to coating and protecting. This was part of a long term test which started in February 2009 for The Brighton and Hove County Council, with a view to see how the coatings coped in harsh environments, exposed to oxidisation and graffiti.

The pictures below show the cleaning, preparing & coating process.

Prior to the application of EPC7460A stainless steel protective coating, the ERW-AL preparation fluid was applied to ensure perfect adhesion.

After the initial coat dried, additional coats of EPC7460A were applied (total of 3 coats). Stainless steel now protected from all the elements.

Easy sticker removal

When the surface was originally cleaned and prepared, the sticker removal caused a lengthy process to be employed. A hot air gun, plastic scrapper and solvent were used to remove the stickers without damaging or marking the surface of the stainless steel. On a future return, more fly stickers had been applied. But as the pictures below show, their removal from the protected surface was now a simple process. The sticker lifted easily off the coated surface, leaving only a dirty out line, which was easily removed with a wipe over.
