New pack size increases opportunities to use Crown Trade Steracryl Mould inhibiting paint

As autumn rolls in and the condensation season approaches, Crown Trade has introduced a new pack size for its high performance mould inhibiting paint, helping you take advantage of opportunities in the marketplace.

Crown Trade’s Steracryl Mould Inhibiting paint is now available in 2.5 litre packs, so you can have greater flexibility and efficiency when tackling areas that can be subjected to condensation and mould during the colder weather – including kitchens and bathrooms.

The condensation season starts around autumn, where properties can be affected by additional water around window and wall areas as temperatures start to drop, usually around October.

This combination of falling temperatures, combined with poor insulation within a property, ineffective glazing, inadequate ventilation and temperature differentials between rooms, can all lead to water droplets forming around windows and doors, as well as walls and ceilings.

Over time, these wet areas can provide a perfect breeding ground for mould spores forming.

Crown Trade Steracryl Mould Inhibiting paint, which is available in Matt and Durable Acrylic Eggshell finishes, can play a key role in inhibiting mould growth, and now painters and decorators can benefit from the flexibility and efficiency of smaller pack sizes.

Crown Trade Senior Brand Manager, Debbie Orr, said: “We recognise that for some contractors, a smaller pack offers increased efficiency and reduced wastage, which is why we are pleased to launch the new 2.5 litre size, which joins the existing 5 litre container, for our Steracryl Mould Inhibiting paint range.

“Both the matt and acrylic eggshell paints contain an effective fungicide, specially developed to maintain decorated surfaces by inhibiting the development of mould growth on the paint film.

“They have also undergone stringent fungal tests carried out to British Standard BS3900:G6

“Furthermore, the acrylic eggshell system is washable, making it ideal for use in kitchens and bathrooms where condensation can be particularly problematic.”
