A fresh paint job has the power to totally transform the look of your house in less time and for less cash than any other re-modelling project. That thin skin of resin and pigment also protects your investment, shielding it from sun, wind, and rain—until the paint begins to crack and peel, that is. Then it’s time to button up with a couple of new coats. Properly applied, new paint should last for a good 15 years, provided you use top-quality materials, apply them with care (and with an eye on the weather), and, most important, clean and sand every surface first.
There are many ingredients used in paints other than paint and resins, which contributes to fresh and beautiful look of your house and one of the ingredients in paints is biocides. If biocides are not used then paints can be really foul stuff. Biocides are used as preservative which helps safeguard paints from molds, mildew and fungi attack, which will destroy, discolour paint film and create foul walls. The paint binder additives used in paint formulation serves as a nutrient for micro-organisms, so they grow easily on paint films making paint foul and dirty.
So addition of appropriate biocide in paint formulation is absolutely necessary. Problems with selection of appropriate biocides have also got some paint formulators in serious problems. Selection of appropriate biocide is a critical factor for paint formulators. There are many biocides available in market, one of the most critical and effective paint biocide used by paint formulators is Kumar organic’s Kopthione 40% FPS.
Kopthione 40% FPS is Zinc Pyrithione 40%, which is 40% active material. It is a co-ordination of complex zinc. It is stable in extremely low particle size aqueous dispersion for complete protection of all type of paints from microbial attack. Kopthione 40% FPS has low solubility in water; this property makes it ideal for all types of architectural (indoor and outdoor) paints. Kopthione 40% FPS is effective against wide range of bacteria, fungi and algae which grows on walls. The antifungal effect of Kopthione 40% is derived from its ability to disrupt membrane transport by blocking pump that energizes the transport mechanism. Kopthione 40% FPS also prevents discoloration of paint by protecting buildings from decomposition by UV light of direct sunlight.
To conclude with, I can say foul up’s on walls are one of the most common problems but for preventing this and protecting walls from growth of micro-organisms, paint formulators should use effective biocides like Kopthione 40% FPS.
