How Anti-Graffiti Solutions Could Help With Our Cultural Heritage

 

When we are talking about materials of cultural heritage, we have to mention several dangerous sources that can endanger the integrity (structural and theoretical alike) of those particular pieces. The decay can come from various sources, including but not limited to natural corrosion and of course, graffiti as well.The usually young perpetrators aren’t really thinking about the value of the piece they unknowingly (in many cases) destroy, they just want to show their art (or sometimes “art”) to the world.

That is really their only desire and they won’t really stop unless they are incarcerated, which always stirs up the rather polarizing question of whether those young men deserve jail time for their “creativity” or not. That decision is not an easy one, but thankfully we have tools that could allow us to render those “taggings” totally irrelevant in the near future.

Special protection is needed

In order to protect those beautiful pieces of history, we have to make numerous precautionary steps. Using various products like an anti graffiti film layer is just one of the many solutions. A system like that is usually effective because it won’t allow the paint to actually penetrate into the surface itself. The paint will be stopped on the outer layer before it could actually dry and pose a much bigger threat.

Applying the product to a wall is easy

If you have a business and you want to protect its walls from people who would choose them as the target of their upcoming graffiti, you have a relatively easy job. Provided that the wall is straight enough and in relatively good shape, applying a product like that won’t necessarily be the hardest thing you have ever done. With a statue or another piece of cultural heritage like an old building for example, that process will become much, much harder.Imagine a porous, scraggy surface where you want to apply something that should preferably stick to it. If the base is not good enough for this, chances are that the application itself won’t hold. At the moment, there is actually no really effective product on the market that was tailor-made for the protection of cultural heritage sites. That doesn’t mean the current ones cannot be effective, but they weren’t necessary created to fulfill the extra demands of a quality piece like that.

It is already available for limited use

The anti graffiti film layer is available for domestic problems, where the surface is still high quality and applying the product isn’t necessarily a problem.
