For more than 200 years Crown Paints has manufactured paints that blend together quality and innovation to offer a trusted means of transforming and protecting environments indoors and out.
In areas where stringent hygiene performance needs to be managed – such as hospitals, health centres and kitchen areas – the UK manufacturer offers a range of products that give specifiers the ability to select an attractive finish, in a wide-spectrum of shades that combine outstanding aesthetics with best-in-class performance.
One of the key products for areas operating stringent hygiene regimes is Crown Trade Steracryl Anti-Bacterial paint, which steps beyond the standard in areas where cleanliness is paramount.
Providing excellent levels of protection for clean environments, it is suitable for a wide-range of areas including the food and health sectors.
The coating utilises the natural power of silver to limit the growth of problem bacteria, including MRSA, Salmonella and E.Coli.
Features include a choice of scrubbable matt and durable acrylic eggshell finishes, an extensive colour palette – as well as a highly-durable surface capable of withstanding stringent cleaning regimes.
This ability to cope with repeated cleaning procedures supports in-house maintenance programmes and NHS cleaning regimes – and also offers economic incentives due to a robust, long-lasting formulation that helps extend redecoration schedules.
The paint also offers the reassurance of the industry leading SteriTouch safe silver technology antimicrobial system.
Another factor for specifiers to consider is the potential health effects of mould, which are often debated. Where problems with mould can arise, the Crown Trade Steracryl range offers a mould inhibiting version which offers an effective solution.
Debbie Orr, Crown Paints Trade Marketing Manager, said: “Crown Trade Steracryl Mould Inhibiting paint is available in Matt and Durable Acrylic Eggshell finishes and can inhibit mould growth.
“Both the matt and acrylic eggshell paints contain an effective fungicide, specially developed to maintain decorated surfaces by inhibiting the development of mould growth on the paint film.
“The paint has also undergone stringent fungal tests carried out to British Standard BS3900:G6.
“The acrylic eggshell system is also washable, making it ideal for use in kitchens and bathrooms where condensation – which can lead to mould growth – can be particularly problematic.”
Crown Trade’s video, ‘The Right Paint For The Job,’ available to view at www.youtube.com/watch?v=akysgI588P8 includes an insight into the trusted technology behind both the Crown Trade Steracryl Antibacterial and Mould Inhibiting paints, along with other performance systems in the range, such as the premium high technology coating Crown Trade Clean Extreme.
Available in Durable Acrylic Eggshell and Scrubbable Matt, Crown Trade Clean Extreme puts in a polished performance in areas of high use – coping with stringent cleaning regimes and ultimately reducing the need for costly redecoration by minimising wear and tear.
Tested in demanding laboratory conditions and delivering a time-proven finish in-situ, they are the ideal choice for busy areas including schools, universities and student accommodation, as well as nurseries, offices, hospitals, leisure facilities and housing association properties.
Crown Trade Clean Extreme’s high technology formulation provides a surface that is not only wipeable, but has the real bonus of offering a truly scrubbable finish – delivering compelling financial and aesthetic benefits.
Marks and stains can be easily removed to ensure an attractive look is in place for the long term. This ensures a ‘just painted’ appearance is maintained, and surfaces are returned to their pristine condition time and time again.
Key to this performance is a special polymer that gives a tough surface film and intrinsic stain resistance. Most marks and stains will not penetrate and can be easily wiped away with water. Scrubbing with a cloth soon gets rid of tougher soiling, and for deep-seated stains, scrubbing with a mild detergent will eliminate all traces.
These actions leave no burnish marks and appearances are maintained because of the unique qualities of the paint formulation.
This leaves Crown Trade Clean Extreme Scrubbable Matt with its totally sheen-free finish, even after repeated scrubbing with wet or dry cloths.
Debbie Orr added: “These tailored Crown Trade products lead the way for specifiers looking to introduce high quality solutions for their projects.
“Our Specification Services team is on hand to help decision-makers select the right products, improve the maintenance cycles and enhance the aesthetics in the environments in which they are applied.”
