The new low-cost Tecqua coating for Siemens traffic products provides lasting protection against dirt and acts as an anti-graffiti barrier, making it difficult to attach posters or write on the protected surface. To minimise on-street installation, the coating is applied during equipment manufacture which ensures the best possible performance of the coating.
The new Siemens anti-graffiti coating is a transparent Silicon Dioxide (SiO2), ‘pure liquid glass’ glass coating, that provides an impervious barrier to dirt and other chemicals. Coated surfaces repel soiling agents, dirt will not stick to the coated surface and liquids (including paint, ink and poster glue) are unable to penetrate the coating on surfaces which is protected with a ‘nanolayer’ of glass'.
Lifespan of the coating depends on the environment but typically it is expected to last between 3 and 15 years on installed Siemens products. If re-application is necessary this can easily be done on street – so long as the surfaces are clean and dry before a new coating is applied.
