VandlGuard Silicone Elastomeric Anti-Graffiti & Water Repellent Coating | Flexible 420% Elongation | UV Resistant | Concrete Brick Metal Stone

VandlGuard® Silicone Elastomeric Anti-Graffiti & Water Repellent Coating is a clear, low VOC, water-based silicone elastomeric with exceptional crack bridging and 420% elongation flexibility performance. It offers excellent protection against multiple graffiti tags while protecting against wind driven rain all in one product.

It has great hardness without losing elastomeric properties, making it ideal for high temperature exterior environments. Ideal for use on above-grade substrates and can be used on horizontal walking surfaces.

It’s available as a clear, low luster finish with minimal change in surface appearance, while protecting from moisture and graffiti.  Easy application with low pressure airless sprayer with .017 to .021 tip or 1/4″ nap synthetic roller cover

Supplied ready-to-use in both one and five gallon containers, VandlGuard Silicone Elastomeric is available in a clear, white ready to use and 3 separate tint bases Pastel, Deep, Accent.

Color Options

(Can be tinted at any local paint store using water based colorant designed for water based acrylic and latex paints)

Clear should not be tinted
White Ready to Use
Pastel Base: Tint with up to 4 Oz of colorant / Gallon
Accent Base: Tint with up to 11 Oz of colorant / Gallon

Test product over small area of the substrate to estimate coverage and determine if a second coat is needed. A second coat is recommended. The use of fluted, scored block, raked joints, sandblasted or etched surfaces will result in greater absorption and lower coverage rates, by up to 40%. Test these areas for the expected coverage rate before general application.

Surface Preparation

Prior to application, all surfaces shall be clean and dry with no oils, dirt, debris, or minerals such as efflorescence, lime and calcium. These stains, along with others, will prevent proper penetration of Vandlguard® Silicone Elastomeric to sufficiently seal for the warranty period. The use of Rainguard’s Restore-N-Prep™ Concrete and Masonry Cleaner system is recommended as a pretreatment to clean masonry surfaces. Once clean, allow the surface to fully dry before sealing or applying a topcoat.

Application Instructions

All surfaces to be coated should be structurally sound, clean, and dry. Apply using a roller, or low-pressure airless spray equipment at recommended spread rates. If using a brush, use enough material to create a sufficient film build. When spraying, apply in a fine mist, cross hatched pattern to build up the wet coating. As soon as the entire surface has been coated, immediately repeat the process with a second pass. Depending on the porosity of the surface, a light second coat may be necessary. Clean equipment with soap and water when finished.

Painted Surfaces: Allow newly painted and stucco surfaces to fully chemically cure before application of VandlGuard® Silicone Elastomeric. Recent formulations of pigmented paints, coatings, and integrally colored stucco colorant additives contain biocides. These biocides must be released before application of VandlGuard® Silicone Elastomeric. Please consult the manufacturer of the paint/stucco coating to determine the chemical curing period. Exterior Performance Coatings is not responsible for yellowing or color differences as a result of application of the VandlGuard Silicone Elastomeric over uncured paint or integrally colored stucco surfaces.


Safe Handling

Use product only with adequate ventilation and/or an appropriate cartridge type respirator. Avoid contact with skin and wear protective gloves. Read the Safety Data Sheet before using.

Graffiti Removal
1. Graffiti resistance is fully developed after cure time of 5-7 days depending on weather conditions.
2. When using power washer, keep pressure less than 500 psi. For difficult removal use warm to hot water while power washing. No need to use harsh chemical cleaners.
3. When using chemical cleaners use VandlClean™ Super a non-hazardous biodegradable cleaner. Follow manufacturer’s recommendations and instructions for use. In addition, warm water power washing has also been known to assist in the removal of tagging.

Use material in a well-ventilated area. Protect the work of other trades. Protect shrubbery and other plants with drop cloths. Protect automobiles and all other areas not to be coated from overspray. Remove overspray from any windows, automobiles, metal, etc. as soon as possible. To prevent permanent staining, clean spills or leaks in a timely manner.

All surfaces to be coated should be clean of any dirt and grime, efflorescence, lime run, form oils and release agents, grease, mud, excess mortar, and mold and mildew, etc. All cracks should be pointed or caulked. All voids, beeholes, masonry surface defects and openings such as conduits, pipes, drains, door frames, vents, air conditioner openings, electrical openings, control joints, or any dissimilar materials should be repaired using urethane or other approved patching. If an acid etch or an acid stain has been applied to the surface, it must be thoroughly flushed to remove all residue and then allow to dry.

Do not apply on damp or moist surface as it will whiten and may cause delamination. Do not apply to surfaces if moisture content is greater than 15% as measured with an electronic moisture meter. Do not apply product in climates where freezing temperatures have existed prior to application. Allow adequate time for surfaces to thaw. Establish that air, surface, and material temperatures are above 40°F (4.4°C) and at least 5°F above the dew point prior to painting. Do not apply in temperatures below 40°F or above 100°F. Do not apply if rain, snow, or lower temperatures are expected within 48 hours. Do not apply if relative humidity is greater than 80%.

Store materials in a well-protected area at 45°- 90°F. Avoid freezing temperatures, direct sunlight, & moisture. Keep away from heat sources.

Shelf Life of this material is 6 months from the date of manufacture (see batch number for manufactured date).

Clean Up: Uncured material can be removed with a water. Cured material can only be removed mechanically. All empty containers must be disposed of according to local, state, and federal regulations.
