Antimicrobial Paint

PPG has received U.S. Environmental Protection Agency registration for its PPG Copper Armor antimicrobial paint containing Corning Guardiant technology, proven to kill 99.9% of bacteria and viruses, including SARS-CoV-2, on painted surfaces in two hours. The product’s efficacy was measured using tests that simulate real-world contamination that are mandated by the EPA for products making claims against harmful pathogens. Intended for application in high-traffic areas such as health care, hospitality, office and educational environments as well as residential applications, PPG Copper Armor is powered by Corning Guardiant technology, which contains naturally occurring copper, which is known to have antimicrobial efficacy. It continuously kills viruses and bacteria within two hours of contact with the painted surface for up to five years, providing a safeguard against harmful microbes on walls, trim and doors. It also provides a mold- and mildew-resistant coating on the dry paint film.
