Sherwin-Williams’ Paint Shield Will Kill Bacteria Once Applied

Posted on 05 November 2015 by author

The new Sherwin-William Paints do not only provide colorful sight to an object but they will also kill bacteria. This means disinfecting walls and other places that undergo painting or decoration. Of course, painting can give life to halls of schools, ships and even hospitals but contagious infections are possible with some paints for one reason or another.


The antibacterial paint called “Paint Shield” has been registered by Sherwin-Williams with the US Environmental Protection Agency and it is designed to stop the growth of common microbes as well as killing the following species of bacteria: enterobacter aerogenes, VRE (vancomycin-resistant enterococcus faecalis), MRSA (methicillin-resistant staphylococcus aureus), e. coli (escherichia coli) and staph (staphylococcus aureus). Sherwin-Williams says the paint is available in 590 colors and its production is in collaboration with microbiologists and scientists.

The interior latex paint will be available in stores next year. TheĀ  only downside associated with the paint is it causes eye irritation which forced the company to show some cautions as for its use. The company hopes to reduce infections acquired from hospitals through the use of its innovative paint although it may take at least 2 hours for the paint to start killing microbes upon application. No details as to price and actual place of availability for now.
