1 gallon will cover up to approx. 200-250 sq ft.
ABOUT PRESERVATION SOLUTION (MURALSHIELD)
MuralShield™ is designed for the conservation of fine art acrylic murals. It offers UV protection, consolidation, and weatherproofing. The film is flexible and completely clear, producing a luster to glossy finish. The coating is available for $85.00 (plus tax and HAZMAT shipping) per gallon and covers 200-250 sq ft.
MuralShield™ is a hazardous chemical so plenty of caution should be used when applying it. Respirators, long sleeve gloves, and a splash-proof guard should be used when working with Preservation Solution. It is highly flammable and should be kept far from potential ignition sources.
MuralShield™ is best sprayed with an airless compressor. When one is not available, a HVLP syphon gravity feed airbrush can be used (70-90psi). Preservation Solution can also be brushed on with a solvent-rated synthetic bristle brush or natural hair brush.
MuralShield™ works as a protective and isolation layer. It is a conservation grade coating and will not protect acrylic murals from graffiti or vandalism alone. Apply two-three generous coatings of Preservation Solution, allow to dry thoroughly for 15-20 minutes, and then apply two generous coatings of World’s Best Graffiti Coating (WBGC). Preservation Solution is applied only once upon completing a new work or restoration.
MuralShield™ should not be applied under high humidity conditions or when the wall is moist.
How to Protect Yourself when Applying Preservation Solution
You must use solvent rated masks that are cartridge based rebreathers. You can find them at most hardware or paint stores. They are commonly know as paint-stripping rated masks. To protect your hands and arms, use neoprene or nitrile gloves (thick nitrile works best). For extra protection, use Liquid Gloves or a similar product, available at Blick Art Supplies and most hardware stores. Utilize either work clothes or a disposable protective suit, also available at most hardware stores, when applying our coatings to avoid garment damage or accidental spillage.
After applying MuralShield™ you must spray two or three coats of World’s Best Graffiti Coating in order to fully protect mural from vandalism and/or the elements.
1 gallon will cover up to approx. 200-150 sq ft.
Once applied, vandalism can be quickly and easily removed using a hot water pressure washer alone, or by using our removers. The Coating is then re-applied to the affected area before leaving.
World’s Best Graffiti Coating is also ideal for delicate historic building surfaces which have incurred previous damage.
The Coating flexes with the ambient temperature and is durable and UV stable. The end result is a long lasting invisible protective barrier which behaves like a ‘living’ skin reinventing itself (almost daily) in the sun, rain and wind. One critical advantage of this, is that no water vapors are ever trapped, and consequently walls ‘breathe’ normally, with moisture allowed to pass during these times.
After 30 years of experience with ‘coatings’, we realized that this product was the most versatile, durable, and easily removed coating available – being far and above any other ‘try hard’ products in the building industry.
World’s Best Graffiti Coating contains zero VOCs and is biodegradable, non toxic and virtually odorless, making it a pleasure to apply. Coverage is approximately 200 sq ft per gallon on porous surfaces (including 2 coats) or approx. 800 sq ft per gallon on hard impervious surfaces, where only one coat is required.
