About Us

Visual Pollution Technologies, Inc. was formed in response to a growing need in the construction industry to handle everyday issues on job sites such as dust control, cleanup and disposal, and graffiti….to name a few.   The lab was originally started in 1970 by Dr. Thomas Smoot who used his chemical manufacturing experience to develop numerous products.  Bruce Feit joined Dr. Smoot in 1983, and together they continued to create and manufacture unique products until Dr. Smoot's passing in 2010.  In 1984, Bruce developed the first chemical cleaning line of products for the Exterior Insulation Finish System (EIFS) Industry.  With our products, formerly complicated job site issues are now easily resolved.


Visual Pollution Technologies, Inc. became involved in the manufacturing of anti-graffiti coatings and removers in 1992 as graffiti problems became more prevalent.  In addition to VPT’s own label, our anti-graffiti products were originally made under “private label” for companies such as STO, Dayton Superior, Symons Corporation, Degussa, and BASF.  Today, VPT markets these products directly to the end user. 

Visual Pollution Technologies, Inc. is also directly involved in the battle against blight.  Bruce Feit, President of VPT, was one of the founding members of the Graffiti Abatement Institute of North America (GAIN), a non-profit organization dedicated to educating people who work in graffiti elimination or are interested in learning more about fighting graffiti.  Bruce served for over 2 years as the president of GAIN and, during his tenure, devoted up to 30% of his time to this organization.  Bruce also served on a federal highway panel to set national highway standards for the testing of anti-graffiti products.  Bruce serves on the board of directors of No-Graf, an international non-profit organization that continues to bring together people throughout the world that are involved in the battle against graffiti.

 VPT’s graffiti barriers are currently approved and used by highway departments, cities and private properties throughout the United States, Europe, Canada, Australia and the Middle East.
