Many clients ask us what’s new in paint technology. New York is moving to stop oil-based paints but many of the latex are stepping up, cover well, and are able to be cleaned.
Scuff Proof Paint
Benjamin Moore introduced Ultra Spec SCUFF-X – the first-of-its-kind, one-component interior latex paint engineered specifically to resist scuff marks in high-traffic areas. SCUFF-X provides superior scuff-resistance to two-component coatings, without the strong odor. Recommended areas for use include high-traffic spaces such as playrooms, hallways, stairwells, lobbies, and offices.
Sherwin Williams has Paint Shield®, the first EPA-registered microbicidal paint that kills more than 99.9% of Staph (Staphylococcus aureus), MRSA (Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus), E. coli (Escherichia coli), VRE (Vancomycin-resistant Enterococcus faecalis), and Enterobacter aerogenes within two hours of exposure on painted surfaces. It continues to kill 90% of these bacteria even after repeated contamination on painted surfaces. The effectiveness lasts for up to four years as long as the integrity of the surface is maintained. This paint can be prepared in any color in their line and is highly recommended for playrooms, daycare centers, doctor offices, entryways, gymnasiums, locker rooms, and public restrooms.
