What Is Microbicidal Paint?
The term ‘microbicidal’ (or ‘antimicrobial’) refers to a substance that kills microbes. These microbes can range from bacteria to viruses. By giving your wall an antimicrobial coating, you are creating a protective barrier that fights microbes all day long. In fact, Sherwin Williams microbicidal paint can keep killing bacteria for up to 4 years after first application, even through repeated contamination and washing.
Tested, Tried, and True
In addition to being an effective way to kill viruses and bacteria within your home, Paint Shield® is the first-ever EPA-registered latex paint. The active ingredient, an ammonium compound, allows this powerful paint to maintain its antimicrobial properties over a long period of time. According to the Sherwin Williams website, ‘Paint Shield® underwent vigorous scrubbing tests and repeated exposure tests to make sure that when exposed to normal wear and tear, cleaning and scrubbing, it maintains its effectiveness (for up to four years when the integrity of the surface is maintained) and meets the high-quality standards of all Sherwin-Williams products.’
