In the case of breakage, anti-graffiti coatings hold the shards of glass together, leaving a large blanket of glass held in one piece, making it easier to clean and dispose of.
Anti-graffiti films and anti-graffiti coatings are available to eliminate expensive glass-etching vandalism or damage to glass in high traffic areas. Anti-graffiti coatings are thick enough to protect glass from most forms of vandalism or accidental damage, yet they are virtually invisible when mounted on the outside of surface glass or Plexiglass. When a vandal scratches a window or uses acid etching chemicals to deface it, anti-graffiti coatings will prevent any permanent damage. In this case, vandals are actually damaging only the anti-graffiti coating, not the glass. We can then simply replace the anti-graffiti coating for a fraction of the cost of glass replacement.
