Asset Owner : Vic Roads
As a part of the Vic Roads Specification 685 (Permanent Anti Graffiti) and 686 (Decorative Anti Carbonation Concrete Coating) approval process, on site trials needed to be carried out in order to prove the coating's suitability for coating major infrastructure. The Westgate Freeway in Melbourne, Australia was chosen as one of two sites. The trial process was very detailed and investigated all facets of application and performance testing (the compliance testing is available from the Vic Roads Weblinks on this page). After an extensive process the ProGuard coating exceeded all test requirements and as of mid 2011 the coating was fully approved by Vic Roads.
A full report along with extensive video footage is available from Nanokote Pty Ltd on the anti graffiti trials.
