  8. 8. What are people using to remove graffiti? Survey of Professionals: requests to conservators and preservation professionals in the field 20 responses received  Most used chemical cleaners  Organic Solvents: Acetone, MEK, Xylene  Solvent poultices  Solvent Gels  Commercial Products  Solvent based  Hydroxide based  Peel Away products

  12. 12. Peel Away 1® A poultice like paste containing caustic cleaners Active Ingredients  Calcium Hydroxide  Magnesium Hydroxide  Sodium Hydroxide pH = 13 Requires a separate neutralizing solution
  13. 13. Wipe Out Porous Surface Graffiti Remover® Basic gel Active Ingredients  75% proprietary ingredient  1-5% Monoethanolamine  1-10 % Potassium Hydroxide  1-5% Nonylphenol Ethoxylate pH = 11-12
  14. 14. Sure Klean® Fast Acting Stripper Solvent-based gel Active Ingredients:  Dichloromethane  Amine  Methyl Alcohol  Xylene  Alcohol pH = NA Major handling and environmental issues

  25. 25. What have we learned?Of the products tested: Peel Away was most efficient for removing paint and the least physical damage to the surface, but it was difficult to remove from some surfaces Sure Klean Fast Acting Stripper was a gel that limited penetration into the material. It was a poor performer overall. Wipe Out was difficult to control during application and caused the relocation of pigment. It performed well on the high fired yellow brick. Laser ablation required a great deal of pre-experimental examination to be effective.
  26. 26. Where do we go from here? Limited study established methods for evaluating graffiti removers A greater range of products must be tested, with an emphasis on cleaners that are:  Environmentally friendly  Effective at removing a range of materials  Safe for the cultural resource, the environment, and the user
