Jamestown to Market New Antimicrobial Paint Line

Thursday, May 27, 2010

Comment | More

Jamestown Coatings Technologies said its new SurfaGuard™ protective antimicrobial paints are formulated using NanoHorizons Inc.’s SmartSilver™ additives.

NanoHorizons is a developer of nanoscale performance additives for textile, health care, and industrial applications.

Jamestown Coatings Technologies said the antimicrobial paints are producing positive results in pre-launch tests with several health-care and educational institutions, including the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center; Edgewood Surgical Center, Transfer, Pa.; Thiel College, Greenville, Pa.; and Sharon High School, Sharon, Pa. The company said the antimicrobial paint products will be available beginning in June. The water-borne paints are low in VOCs, low odor, and have a high flash point of above 220 F, the company said.

“Public spaces like schools and health-care facilities are vulnerable to harmful microbes despite the most diligent janitorial programs,” said Michael P. Walton, Jamestown Coatings Technologies CEO. “We designed SurfaGuard protective antimicrobial paints to be an extra defensive shield against bacteria, molds, and fungi, as well as against the odor buildup and discoloration these microbes can cause.” He said the products combine “the very latest in cutting-edge nanotechnology with the power of silver, one of the oldest, most effective, non-toxic antimicrobials known to man.”

Jamestown Coatings Technologies said its technical personnel collaborated with scientists from NanoHorizons to ensure the antimicrobial paints provide constant, highly durable antimicrobial protection that won’t wear off, wash off, or become deactivated, diluted, or neutralized during the expected life of the paint. The silver-based additives protect interior walls safely without the use of hazardous chemicals, the company said.

Chris Haupt, vice president of NanoHorizons’ Industrial Business Unit, said the silver-based additives are registered with the EPA and are approved by the International Oeko-Tex Association.
