Paint Shield, a Major Innovation in Painting
My kids were always active in high school sports from swim teams to lacrosse. School locker rooms are a damp and steamy place, a perfect breeding ground for bacteria such as Staphylococcus and MRSA. The spread of bacteria from child to child can happen so easily.
This past fall, Sherwin Williams introduced a new paint called Paint Shield interior latex which is designed to kill harmful bacteria. This new EPA-registered microbicidal paint is found to eliminate 99.9% of Staph, MRAS, E. coli within 2 hours of exposure on painted surfaces. It also is found to kill 90% of these specific bacteria up to 4 years later no matter how much contaminants touch the surface or how many times its been cleaned
There is no other paint product like it on the market. If you are a school, daycare, doctor’s office, veterinary clinic, nursing home, etc. this product should be your new go-to choice for your next painting project. The directions from Sherwin Williams requires two coats of Paint Shield over a primer for new construction or two coats of paint over previously painted sound surfaces. It will be available nationwide beginning 2017 and come in 550 colors.
