All Duraluxe panels are anti-graffitti
Another unique characteristic of Duraluxe panels is their resistance to graffiti, markers, lipstick and more. The toughness of Duraluxe panels is due to the special formulation of the coating we use, a special formulation that makes the panels impenetrable to external pollutants, such as dirt and permanent markers/inks. While the cleaning of surfaces sublimated with regular powders would leave stains or blotches, panels with Duraluxe anti-graffiti / UV resistant properties can be cleaned easily with no traces of pollutants.
Here the lab tests:
1. Product features
The main characteristic of the anti-graffiti powder 11X-XXX-YYYY (previous code: DS-0XXXA) is the high resistance to contamination: a special formulation makes products coated with this powder impenetrable to external pollutants, such as dirt and permanent markers/inks. While the cleaning of surfaces painted with regular powders would leave stains or blotches, surfaces painted with anti-graffiti powder will be cleaned easily with no traces of pollutants. These powders are all for sublimation and they are typically smooth and glossy.
