Keeping Mould at Bay

August 2018

Carrs Coatings, who are a National Landlords Association Recognised Supplier from Redditch, Worcestershire, manufactures Glixtone Fungi-Shield Anti-Mould & Blackspot Paint which has a 20 years lifespan.

Glixtone Fungi-Shield is an interior washable highly decorative paint for any internal areas that are susceptible to Mould and Blackspot.

Landlords face an on-going battle with properties and the infestation of mould which is both unsightly and a health hazard to their Tenants. Re-decoration is expensive, time consuming and disruptive. If Health Inspectors are notified this can also be a real problem to Landlords. Glixtone Fungi-Shield will not stop condensation or damp but when applied it is impossible for mould spores to survive on its surface as the active biocide is distributed evenly over the whole paint film and will keep killing the spores on contact. This is a LONG LASTING solution to what can be a never ending battle.

Manufactured in a different way to most other Anti-Mould Paints and uses a unique combination of our own biocides bonded to a ‘Thermal’ acrylic resin base. Most other products use an already made paint with a fungicide/algaecide added and mixed into this pre-made paint. This means that not all of the paint will carry the same amount of the fungicide which protects against mould growth when applied to a surface.

Glixtone Fungi-Shield is built as an Anti-Mould and Blackspot Paint with the manufacturing processes ensuring that the special acrylic resins and our biocides are both blended and bonded to each other. The process means that when produced every part of our paint has exactly the same amount of biocide giving a totally uniform distribution.

When used it will be noticed that the texture is that of ‘clotted cream’ and will flow from roller or paint brush with ease. It will also cover exceptionally well as it has a very high opacity rate. When applied the biocides will be active immediately and it may be noticed that very cold areas are slightly warmer due to the thermal resins that we use. After 5 days the surface will be fully washable making it ideal for Kitchens, Bathrooms, Living Rooms and Bedrooms etc.

We recommend Glixtone Sterilising Solution be used to remove any existing mould prior to the application of Glixtone Fungi-Shield. This is supplied in a concentrated form and when mixed with water will make 5 Litres of a Washing Solution. Remember to leave this to dry (do not wash off ) in order for it to continue to work for you.

This what one Customer has said ….

“As an experienced landlord and owner of a lettings agency, we were struggling to find a decorative solution to the problem of mould, which is usually caused by condensation. We have tried several products however it wasn’t until we found Glixtone Fungi-Shield paint that we now have a viable cost effective solution that absolutely works. This paint is now used effectively in the prevention of mould and black spot in all of our properties under management as well as my own. I would wholeheartedly recommend this product to any end user looking to resolve mould and black spot in their homes”
