Questions about graffiti removal on clinker?

How to properly remove graffiti on clinker?

Without intensive graffiti removal on facades and other surfaces, our cities and communities would no longer be recognizable today. To effectively counteract this problem, not only the legislator, but also the cleaning industry has come up with quite a few ideas. There are many ways to clean but efficiency and environmental friendliness are two very important aspects to consider in this segment. The Tornado ACS cleaning system offers you these two components perfectly combined in one cleaning machine.

Will the joints between the clinkers also be clean

With conventional methods, this is quite difficult. Graffiti adheres poorly to a well-fired clinker brick. You can achieve good results with almost any method. Only the joint will not be clean. Vacuum blasting is different. The joint is perfectly cleaned by the minimally abrasive blasting process. The clinker wall and the joints look like new again.

The unique vacuum blasting technology enables clean and environmentally friendly work. By using renewable raw materials, such as nutshell, we are 100% CO2 neutral. The cleaning technology Tornado ACS is set up and ready for use in just a few minutes. The time-consuming disposal of soiled cleaning agents is no longer necessary. The paint on the wall is only broken and not dissolved, so the removal and the remaining granules are not hazardous waste and can be disposed of normally in household waste.

What makes graffiti removal so difficult?

When removing graffiti, the surface to be treated is particularly important. The more porous the surface, the more difficult it is to remove graffiti. Porous and unprotected substrates, such as many types of natural stone, as well as sandstone, travertine or limestone, are a challenge for any graffiti removal process.  The graffiti paint soaks deeply into the substrate through the many and usually deep pores. The surface can usually be cleaned well but the shadows remain. Such sensitive surfaces must be treated with graffiti protection if there is a latent danger of graffiti.

Can you remove graffiti on any clinker?

There are very different clinker. There are the hard burnt ones with a very smooth surface. There are porous or open-pored clinkers, also called Dutch clinker, and there is the so-called brick.

Basically, you can remove the graffiti on all types of clinker. With the very porous Dutch clinker, there is a risk that the paint will soak deep into the stone. Then the graffiti can no longer be removed without shadows. The most environmentally friendly way to remove graffiti is with the vacuum blasting system from systeco.
