Final Report - EFFACEUR (InnovativE anti-graFFiti product for Application in the Cultural Heritage of EURope)

Project ID: 262486
Funded under: FP7-SME


This is the final report of the EFFACEUR project, which is funded under the European Commission (EC) Seventh Framework Programme (FP7). The aim was to upscale a new practical and financially viable anti-graffiti marketable prototype product, based on an environmentally friendly formulation tailor-made for cultural heritage applications.

In the final project phase, the two main components of the anti-graffiti formulation were successfully scaled up and the industrial viability of the production processes was demonstrated. Formulation of the new anti-graffiti paint was developed. Reversibility and cleaning tests were performed and the product’s compatibility with common conservation products, such as water repellents, biocides and consolidants, was also studied. The product was applied in four different case studies and application method, adherence, gloss, colour and weather resistance, etc. were studied. In general, the results were satisfactory although more work is needed to improve the product.
