Nippon Paint Unveils New Coatings Innovation Which Is 99% Effective Against Human Coronavirus

Nippon Paint Malaysia recently launched an anti-viral and antibacterial paint named the Nippon Paint VirusGuard. Effective in providing anti-viral and antibacterial protection for homes and commercial space, its added feature is lab-tested to be 99% effective against the Human Coronavirus (strain 229E).

“The roll out of the Nippon Paint VirusGuard is timely for the nation as we continue to adapt to ‘The New Normal’ and take precautionary measures in our homes, workspaces and offices, while keeping everyone safe,” says Yaw Seng Heng, Group Managing Director of Nippon Paint Malaysia Group.

The Nippon Paint VirusGuard was tested against the Human Coronavirus, ATCC VR-740, strain 229E by Analytical Lab Group earlier this year which demonstrated a 99.9% reduction in viral titer upon contact of the virus on the paint film. The Nippon Paint VirusGuard utilises the Silver Ion Technology, that is also effective in mitigating the growth of viruses and bacteria such as the hand, foot and mouth disease (HFMD), influenza A (H1N1), Escherichia coli and Staphylococcus aureus, in addition to the human coronavirus (strain 229E), when in contact with the paint film.

“Nippon Paint is at the forefront of innovation and is committed to continue seeking opportunities, new technologies and effective solutions for our consumers and stakeholders” says Datin Wong Meng Lee, Assistant General Manager of Marketing, Nippon Paint Malaysia.
