We all know that paint can make our surfaces look nice and provide a layer of added protection against the elements, but did you know that Microbicidal Paint can help keep you healthy too? The increased public awareness and greater emphasis on public health has caused antimicrobial paints and coatings to become one of the industry’s most rapidly expanding markets.
New paint technologies allow us to go above and beyond the call for a defense against these everyday microbes, greatly minimizing the impact of airborne dangers. They allow not only for protection against bacterial based dangers, but are also anti-viral, anti-fungal, and anti-algal, among other benefits. The technology works by using materials that are not harmful to humans and embedding them within the paint. These materials then either kill the microbes or render them harmless to people, and are effective against 99.9% of common pathogens including Staph, E.coli, MRSA, VRE and Enterobacter Aerogenes.
WHAT IS PAINT SHIELD®?
It is the first-ever EPA-registered interior latex paint with the power to kill certain bacteria on painted surfaces within two hours of exposure. And it has the appearance and quality you expect from Sherwin-Williams paints.
WHAT DOES IT KILL?
Paint Shield® microbicidal paint kills 99.9% of Staph (Staphylococcus aureus), E. coli (Escherichia coli), MRSA (Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus), VRE (Vancomycin-resistant Enterococcus faecalis) and Enterobacter aerogenes on painted surfaces within two hours of exposure, and continues to kill 90% of bacteria for up to four years when the integrity of the surface is maintained.
