Vinyl wrapping can be an effective method of deterring graffiti on various surfaces and assets. Vinyl wrapping helps to prevent graffiti by:
- Protecting the surface of the asset from graffiti;
- Making graffiti easier to remove; and
- Improving the look of the asset and the surrounding environment.
Vinyl wrapping also allows artwork and designs to be placed on an asset, without the need to directly paint or mark the surface.
When choosing the vinyl, it is important to select a product that is tough, durable, and suitable for the chosen application. A protective film should also be used to further protect the vinyl. A large range of vinyl products and protective films are available from 3M.
Any design printed on vinyl to deter graffiti should be ‘busy’ and avoid large solid blocks of colour. The use of lots of dark colouring should also be avoided, as this may attract additional heat and shorten the lifespan of the vinyl.
