Mr. Jon Hair is a world renowned sculptor who was named Official Sculptor of the US Olympic Team and an Official Sculptor of the Beijing Olympics. Jon Hair has over 30 major public art commissions including "Olympic Strength" - a 35 foot tall monument which has become the icon for the US. Olympic Training Center in Colorado. Jon's massive bronze at Purdue University entitled "The Boilermaker" rises 26 feet as the crowning jewel of the Ross-Abe Stadium. Other public art commissions include the US Air Force Academy and the Academy for Television Art and Sciences for the Emmy's Hall of Fame.
Jon chooses to use Everbrite Protective Coating to protect his bronze sculptures because it is easier and less expensive to maintain than other coating systems such as Incralac®.
If graffiti happens to get on a sculpture coated with Incralac® or other cross linked coatings, the area must be sand blasted, re-patinized and then recoated. With Everbrite, the graffiti can be wiped off with a solvent like xylene and the coating can be reapplied. Everbrite is self-annealing and will blend to itself so the repairs will not be noticeable.
Incralac® will start to peel after about 7 years and the coating must be blasted off with sand or other abrasives, the bronze must be re-patinized and the coating reapplied. This involves a lot of expense to take down the sculpture and send it back to the foundry for the work to be completed. Everbrite can be wiped down with a solvent and reapplied in the field. No expensive processes.
Everbrite is available in a Satin finish so the bronze does not need wax to dull down the shine.
