Nippon Paint, recently launched a campaign to galvanize healthcare facilities in Sri Lanka with its latest 3-in-1 product MediFresh, an antibacterial coating developed with silver and zinc ions to keep pathogenic microorganisms at bay. .
The project to isolate hospitals across the country was started at the Hospital for Infectious Diseases (IDH) in Colombo and has since spread to several key cities in the country.
The product has been clinically proven to provide protection against pathogenic viruses based on extensive research by two reputable laboratories in Singapore: the Productivity and Standards Board (PSB) and TÜV SÜD PSB, a company spokesperson said. .
Nemantha Abeysinghe, Managing Director of Nippon Lanka Paint, said: “We are proud to be one of the first paint manufacturers in the world to introduce a unique product that goes beyond the cosmetic and aesthetic functions of paint. MediFresh 3-in-1 has received an overwhelmingly positive response from the local market so far as it is easy to use and can be applied to a wide range of surfaces without having to remove the existing paint coat.
“Based on the research available, it is evident that this product may offer protection against a few different types of pathogenic pathogens; MediFresh 3-in-1 eliminates the need for constant disinfection, which is an expensive, time-consuming and labor-intensive process, ”he said. The paint is an acrylic elastomeric coating for interior use that protects the environment against many types of bacteria.
