Need an Anti Mould solution ?
When you need an anti mildew paint and anti mould paint that does what it says on the tin, Zinsser Perma really is the go to product. Used in hospitals, factories and swimming pools for its proven anti mould properties, Perma Interior Paint is just as beneficial in home environments where unhealthy mold and mildew are a problem.
Made from low odour and highly durable latex acrylic resins, Zinsser Perma Anti Mould can be scrubbed and washed so that it always stays bright and fresh. In fact it’s so tough it also comes with a lifetime durability guarantee. It is moisture and stain resistant and there is no need to pre-sand sound surfaces – just apply directly from the tin. Use on nearly any surface including walls, ceilings, tiles, gloss paint, plasterboard and even cement.
Unlike many other anti mould paints, Zinsser Perma doesn’t simply cover up the problem, it actually prevents further mildew and mould growth for a minimum of 5 years – guaranteed.
Anti Mould Paints contain biocidal chemical compounds called Fungicides that are used to kill or inhibit fungi or fungal spores. Fungicides can either be contact, translaminar or systemic.
The term mold is applied to a large and taxonomically diverse number of fungal species where their growth results in a moldy appearance of objects. The objects become discolored by a layer of fungal growth. Moulds are fungi that grow in the form of multicellular filaments called hyphae. A connected network of these tubular branching hyphae, called a mycelium, is considered a single organism. The hyphae are generally transparent, so the mycelium appears like very fine, fluffy white threads over the surface. Cross-walls (septa) may delimit connected compartments along the hyphae, each containing one or multiple, genetically identical nuclei. The dusty texture of many moulds is caused by profuse numbers of asexual spores conidia formed by differentiation at the ends of hyphae. The mode of formation and shape of these spores is traditionally used to classify the mould fungi. Many of these spores are colored, making the fungus much more obvious to the human eye at this stage in its life-cycle.
Moulds are considered to be microbes and do not form a specific taxonomic or phylogenetic grouping, but can be found in the divisions Zygomycota and Ascomycota. Moulds cause biodegradation of natural materials, that can be unwanted when it becomes food spoilage or damage to property.
