Vira-Protect is a water based anti viral and anti microbial paint suitable for commercial and residential buildings. It is ideal for areas with high foot traffic, such as walls in corridors, stairwells and lift lobbies. Vira-Protect is available in a smooth and durable matt or satin finish.
Some viruses have a shell that protects their cores while outside of a body, allowing them to survive on surfaces. Vira-Protect contains silver micro particles with naturally charged silver ions that burst virus shells and damage the nucleus DNA.
This anti microbial paint has received certification for 91.5% reduction in Human Coronavirus after 2 hours, 99.3% reduction in E-coli after 4 hours and a 99.9% reduction in other bacteria after 24 hours. It also meets and exceeds the requirements of Health Building Note 00-10 Part B Walls and Ceilings.
The paint works by containing solid biocidal nano-particles throughout the paint. These provide long term protection against bacteria and viruses, creating a more hygienic environment in an indoor space.
In addition to the health benefits provided by the paint, it can be supplied in a wide range of RAL and BS colours. The matt and satin finishes available allow the existing appearance of a room to be matched, while improving the hygiene quality.
