Prosoco's Answer to Graffiti: Defacer Eraser


Prosoco recently released a new graffiti-removing product that is more powerful than its predecessor.

Defacer Eraser Graffiti Remover replaces the Graffiti Wipe, and is a liquid formula that more effectively eliminates graffiti.

Formulated based on contractor feedback, the product offers more effective penetration to melt away graffiti while also featuring the same ecological advantages as its other graffiti-removing products with biodegradable components.  Graffiti Remover was designed to have a shorter dwell time, allowing for faster project completion.

“Another improvement users will notice is less ghosting left on the substrate because it’s more effective at removing graffiti in general,” said Jake Boyer, leader of Prosoco’s line of masonry cleaners and protective treatments.

Graffiti Remover is designed to work with the company’s Blok-Guard anti-graffiti treatments and is water-rinsable and VOC compliant.

The product works with substrates that include terracotta, brick, concrete, terrazzo, stone, wood and metal.
