This practice covers a basic method for evaluating the performance of anti-graffiti products on mineral building substrates by a series of increasingly abrasive cleaning methods. The anti-graffiti materials are applied to a series of concrete, masonry and natural stone specimens for evaluation. Graffiti resistance is based on how a defined set of markings are removed by a designated set of cleaning techniques.
This practice also defines a procedure to evaluate graffiti removal after re-marking with subsequent re-cleaning. It does not address the re-treatment of substrates after a material is no longer graffiti resistant.
