MicroShield is a range of antimicrobial paints made in Australia and exclusive to AM360. These paints are hard wearing and offer scuff-resistant interior wall finishes with excellent washability and stain removal properties.
Additionally, MicroShield antimicrobial paints have silver ion technology* incorporated into the paint formula which inhibits bacterial growth 24/7. The silver ions are an integral part of the product; it will not rub off, will not leach out and will last for the active lifetime of the finish. The silver ion formulation is FDA, EPA and food contact approved and is also registered on the European BPR.
Resistant to bacterial and viral colonisation, MicroShield’s formulation kills viruses and prevents the growth of bacteria, mould, and viruses such as:
MicroShield antimicrobial paints help to maintain a sterile and hygienic environment and are suitable for use in hygiene critical areas such as hospitals, surgical practices, commercial kitchens, laboratories and aged care homes.
How do MicroShield paints protect against bacteria?
The silver ions bind to the cell wall, disrupting growth
The ions interfere with enzyme production, stopping the cell producing energy
The cell’s DNA is interrupted, preventing replication

*Please note that all our products contain ionic silver, unlike other products on the market which contain nano silver. According to researchers at Rice University, in order for silver to be effective in killing bacteria, it has to be in its ionised form. Nano silver is therefore benign in the presence of microbes.
