The protected surface will be water and graffiti resistant after 2 hours and dry after 4 hours. Ultimate protective effect will be achieved after 72 hours.
Transparent, mostly invisible dependent on type of surface. UV resistant. Weather, water and graffiti resistant. NOTE: Some building materials can darken or become shiny.
SHIELD MAX® is an invisible water-carried all-weather long-term protection, formulated for most types of surfaces.
Provides extra strong protection against spray paint and marker or felt tip pens. Protects against airborne pollution and moisture for a minimum of 5 years. Permeable and allows protected surfaces to breath. Correctly applied, life expectancy against graffiti is approximately 5 years. Prevents graffiti from penetrating into substrate. A sacrificial protection coating will always need to be re-applied after every removal process to re-protect the surface.
Preparation: Clean off both graffiti and other contamination, such as traffic dirt, wax, oil and paint residue, etc. from substrate. Mask and protect windows in a suitable manner. Ideal temperature for external application should be between 50 F-95 F. Minimum temperature is 47 F. Relative humidity must not exceed 95%.
Exterior Protection: Shake or stir product well prior to use. SHIELD MAX can be applied with an airless sprayer, hand trigger sprayer, pump sprayer or roller. The protection is applied 2-3 times. NOTE: Allow some intermediate drying. SHIELD MAX can be applied to a damp, not wet, surface. Runs and/or excessive application can easily be washed off with water, following completion of work.
Interior Protection: Painted substrate can be protected using a squeegee, brush, roller or with low pressure spray in combination with a squeegee. The protection is applied three times.
EXTERIOR REMOVAL INSTRUCTIONS
Method 1 - Normal Substrate: Remove graffiti with high pressure hot water at 1000-2000 PSI and 190 F. In difficult case GRAFFITI SOLUTIONS Graffiti Removers are used in a conventional manner. Re-protect cleaned area.
Method 2 - Sensitive Substrate: Apply SHADOW MAX® with a low pressure sprayer. Allow a few minutes for the remover to act and then rinse off with hot water at 800-1200 PSI and 190 F. The method is most suitable when substrate is brittle.
INTERIOR REMOVAL INSTRUCTIONS
Painted Substrate: Dampen the area with SHADOW MAX® and wipe off the graffiti with cloth. If possible, use high pressure hot water and wet vac machines.
Porous Substrate: Rinse off with hot water and wet vac. When removing graffiti, the protective coating is also normally removed. Re-protect 2-3 times with SHIELD MAX.
