IT’S TIME TO REDEFINE WHAT PAINT CAN DO.

 

Paint SHield® microbicidal paint is redefining what paint can do. It is the first paint that kills 99.9%of harmful bacteria, including Staph and E. coli, within 2 hours of exposure on a painted surface. Not just for hospitals and day-care centers, Paint Shield® is ideal for home, too- in kitchens, bathrooms and laundry rooms.

 

 

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.

HOW HAS IT BEEN TESTED?

The Sherwin-Williams Paint Shield® microbicidal paint formula is patented in the U.S. and EPA-registered. It has passed rigorous EPA test protocol conducted by third-party labs. 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.
