  • Graffiti Removal

    Graffiti can be safely and easily removed from all of the Tor Coatings anti-grafitti range by using the Torclean™ Pre-Wipe (SS454001) and Torclean™ Graffiti Remover Wipe (SS455001) or by using the Torclean™ Graffiti Pre-Wash (DM416) and the Torclean™ “G” Graffiti Remover (DM424).

    Only Tor Coatings remover wipes and sprays should be used as other materials may damage the painted surface, resulting in system failure and permanent graffiti damage.

    The use of abrasive pads and household detergents should never be considered unless otherwise instructed by a representative of Tor Coatings Ltd.
