Antimicrobial Paints Case Study: Davis Frost Paints

Homeowners and facilities managers are looking for ways to prevent the appearance of mold, mildew, stains and odors on painted surfaces in residential and commercial facilities. With an increased consumer concern and a growing demand for antimicrobial paint technology, Davis Frost Paints chose to partner with Microban to manufacture a range of paint lines with Microban antimicrobial paint technology.

How Microbes Affect Paint Coatings

Just because you can’t always see microbial growth on surfaces, it doesn’t mean that it’s not there. On an unprotected surface, it only takes twenty minutes for microbes to double in numbers, and once it has multiplied to hundreds of thousands it can be seen by the naked eye. Allowing microbial growth to develop on paint can encourage the development of stains, odors, mold and mildew, and quicken the pace at which the paint becomes dirty. This is particularly noticeable when paint is used in high humidity areas such as bathrooms, basements and kitchens. Moisture in the air, combined with a humid, warm environment encourages microbes to multiply at a quicker pace, quickening the rate at which stains and odors appear.

Davis Frost choose to partner with Microban, who are specialists in antimicrobial paint additives.

Infused into the paint during the manufacturing process, Microban’s specialist antimicrobial paint technologies provide protection against the growth of microbes on the surface of Davis Frost’s paint coatings.
