Crown Trade Steracryl Mould Inhibiting Paint – helping to tackle the issues of ‘Condensation Season’


We are coming up to the time of year where the ‘condensation season’ sets in, characterised by steamy windows and dampness on walls.


If a client reports problems with condensation in their property, you can offer a solution to help manage the issue with Crown Trade Steracryl Mould Inhibiting Paint.


Available in Matt and Eggshell finishes, this durable product contains an effective fungicide, specially developed to maintain decorated surfaces by inhibiting the development of mould growth on the paint film.


Debbie Orr, Crown Paints’ Trade Marketing Manager, said: “As the condensation season starts to set in, usually in October and November, properties can be affected by additional water around windows and walls as temperatures start to drop.


“This combination of lower temperatures – particularly in areas where the efficiency of glazing, insulation and ventilation needs to be taken into consideration – can lead to water droplets forming on surfaces.


“Over time, these wet areas can provide a perfect breeding ground which allow mould spores to form.


“Crown Trade Steracryl Mould Inhibiting Paint has undergone stringent fungal tests carried out to the British Standard BS3900:G6.

“The acrylic eggshell system is also washable, making it ideal for use in kitchens and bathrooms where condensation can be more commonplace, so its ideal to help tackle the issue.”

As well as the mould inhibiting formulation, Crown Trade’s range of Steracryl coatings include an anti-bacterial product, ideal for areas where hygiene is paramount. The handy 2.5 litre pack size is ideal for kitchens and bathrooms.
