Power to kill bacteria: Paint Shield by Sherwin-Williams

Sherwin-Williams announced the scheduled launch in 2016 of Paint Shield, the first EPA-registered paint that kills greater than 99.9 percent of Staph (Staphylococcus aureus), MRSA (Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus), E. coli (Escherichia coli), VRE (Vancomycin-resistant Enterococcus faecalis), and Enterobacter aerogenes after two hours of exposure on a painted surface.

Paint Shield can be applied on interior hard, non-porous ceilings, walls, doors and trim. It is ideal for a variety of settings, such as healthcare facilities, athletic facilities, schools, day care centers, senior care communities, residential housing, hospitality settings and cruise ships. 

Paint Shield will be available in 590 colors and will come in the eg-shel finish. Sherwin-Williams expects Paint Shield to be available in Sherwin-Williams stores in the US starting in the first quarter of 2016.
