GSL Fence Guard

A sacrificial Anti-graffiti Clear Coating specifically designed for the protection of bare timber against the application of graffiti. It contains ingredients which enable any graffiti or paint to be removed easily by steam cleaning. The Siloxane base has no film forming properties and protects the timber by filling the timber pores with siloxane and waxes.

Features and Benefits:

  • Easy application by brush, roller or airless spray.
  • Fast dry.
  • Longer life than ordinary wax treatments.
  • Optional addition of specific fungicide for long term timber protection.

Technical Data:

Resin Type: Organo-siloxane Emulsion blend.
Solvents: Water
Density: 0.95 Kgs/ Litre
VOC: 1.02 Kg/lt
Coverage: 12 - 16 m² per litre, depending on
porosity of the substrate.


Stir thoroughly before use. Ensure surface to be treated is clean and free of dirt or other loose material. Remove any grease, oil and old sealer film. Water blasting may be necessary. Make sure surface is dry before applying by brush, roller or spray.

Two coats are required to achieve adequate film build as protection

The expected lifespan of GSL Fence Guard will be affected by location, weathering and traffic the surface is subjected to. In exposed heavy traffic areas, recoating may be necessary after 6 – 24 months. Removal of the coating should not be necessary unless it has been disfigured

Any disfigurement by graffiti or other means may easily be removed, along with the coating, by steam cleaning or scrubbing with warm detergent solution. When this is done, the surface should be allowed to dry thoroughly before a further coat of GSL Fence Guard is applied.

GSL Fence Guard is essentially non-flammable and non hazardous.
