Vandalism and graffiti on signage, architectural cladding and decorative panels remains an expensive issue for high street retail outlets and local authorities.
Dedicated trade supply company NovaDura has developed a robust and cost-effective answer to this problem through a multi-stage process that incorporates a direct-to-substrate method of printing using special patented inks applied to pre-treated aluminium that is then sealed and protected with a durable UV-resistant coating.
The system offers a combination of anti-graffiti protection with a high level of resistance to abrasion and environmental degradation even in coastal locations where there is abrasion due to sand particles and salt. The system will even withstand contact with naked flames.
As a result, exterior signage and associated architectural features can be retained in their original pristine condition for their predicted lifespan whilst eliminating the need for labour intensive and costly alternative methods of maintenance or replacement.
The system has also provided the ideal alternative to expensive vitreous enamel signage used in prestigious high street locations.
NovaDura was rigorously tested and gained multiple approvals at Exova Warrington Fire Research, most notably to enable its use in passenger-carrying trains and on the London Underground network.
An anti-bacterial version that has been tested to ISO 22196 and JIS Z 2801 is also available for application to signage and claddings in the healthcare sector.
