Safeguard’s new biocidal paint products

Following decontamination, most mould-afflicted properties will require some redecoration and Safeguard Europe – the UK’s leading specialist in damp-proofing and waterproofing technology – has now offers a choice of products in its Dryzone range to deliver a high-quality decorative finish to stained walls and other surfaces.

The first is Dryzone System Mould-Resistant Emulsion Paint, which provides lasting protection against the effects of condensation and is easily applied over standard paint finishes; and the second, DryzoneACS Mould-Resistant Emulsion Paint Additive, which can be used to make any paint mould-resistant, as well as confer the benefits on grout and wallpaper paste.

When redecorating using either product, the surface must be prepared as it would be for normal re-painting and then walls, ceilings, window frames and joinery must be treated with Safeguard’s Dryzone100 Mould Killer to remove any traces of mould. Two coats of mould-resistant paint are then applied using a brush or a roller.

The washable paint comes in brilliant white, magnolia and a selection of pastel colours. Supplied in 5 litre tubs, it gives an average of between 10 and 12m2 coverage per litre, although this depends on the porosity of the substrate. The paint will be touch-dry in an hour, with between two and four hours required between coats.

The additive is compatible with all known water- or solvent based paints and comes in 100ml bottles. Emulsion paints require the additive in 20ml per litre; while gloss paints need 10ml.

The Dryzone System from Safeguard is a complete rising damp renovation range that delivers permanent damp proofing solutions: from preventing moisture ingress through to specialist replastering and mould-resistant decorating materials.

Safeguard Europe’s range of market-leading, proven damp-proofing solutions is supported by the company’s own highly qualified and experienced staff. The support and know-how they offer is extended to contractors, specifiers and property owners and includes technical advice, specification help, research and even in-house laboratory analysis of plaster and masonry.
