” It really is a confidence booster for us and our clients to know we are supplying the best masonry paint product on the Market. We walk away from every project knowing this to be true, as our most senior painter of 45 years says it really is the best paint he has ever painted with! ”

Derek Doyle – Managing Director of Protectall Coatings Dublin and Galway

” I have been a Professional Decorator for over 30 years and this is the BEST Masonry Paint I have ever used. It flows so easily and the coverage is unbelievable. When I cleaned my Paint Kettles and Roller trays out the layered dried paint peeled off and I could stretch it like elastic. I only use this on Masonry jobs now as my customers cannot believe how good it looks and it will not crack or discolour like some other paints I have used. ”

Dave Preece – MP Decorators Kidderminster

Mould and Fungus : how to prevent it!

February 2014

A horrifying fact is Mould and Fungus spores swarm in the atmosphere just asnaturally as Bacteria!

In many industries especially those concerned with food processing, brewing and baking etc the conditions for mould growth are the inevitable result of the processes involved.

In domestic properties, moisture is generated by household activities such as washing, bathing and cooking as well as by breathing and perspiring. The area of most concern for this article is growth on surfaces in dwellings where nutrients that the spores feed off are obtained from paper, paste, paint and general surface contaminants which are present in even the cleanest of dwellings!

Most fungi grow at moderate temperatures in the range of 10-40 oc (mesophilic fungi) However, some aspergillus fumigatus for example, will grow over the range 12-55 oc. Moisture is required for mould growth, although levels will vary depending on the species but they will respond to different levels of water availability, adjusting their internal osmotic requirements as necessary.

In dry conditions, fungi spores remain dormant until water is available for germination. Excess water may cause the spores to die.
Dwellings with a high humidity level are therefore more prone to fungal attack and providing ventilation will assist in reducing growths. It is interesting to note that typical moisture emission rates in a four person household can be between 5 and 10 litres of water in 24 hours purely be being in the property, cooking, bathing and dish washing etc. This level can increase by 10 to 20 litres if washing and drying laundry takes place.

Apart from the general appearance of mould, which may cause physiological problems to occupiers as they become reluctant to socialise within the dwelling, other health risks exist. Rhinitis, asthma, the disease alveolitis and general infection may be aggravated or instigated by the presence of mould. To a degree, these will vary with the size of spores.

Mould and Black Spot is now becoming a real Health and Safety issue for Landlords especially when Tenants do not ventilate their properties correctly. This situation can become far worse in the winter months as some Tenants keep ventilation to a minimum in order to conserve heat.


As fungal spores are normally present in the atmosphere, it's not possible to prevent their presence within a dwelling. However, it is possible to modify the environment of the dwelling so as to limit spore germination. Cleaning of all surfaces, (walls, working areas) on a regular basis is essential to remove food sources.

Moisture control is also essential. Sources would be penetrated through the fabric of the building, rising damp, water leaks and as previously mentioned, general domestic moisture.

Where a dwelling is suffering from penetration or rising damp, these must be rectified at source, as must any general leaks. Adequate ventilation should be installed to create air movement and removal of general moisture. Ideal ventilation rates should be between 0.5 litres to 1.0 air changes per house throughout the whole dwelling. In areas of high moisture output, washing and drying rooms, mechanical extraction should be employed. Modern dwellings with cavities tend to be less prone to mould growth due to increased insulation. Thermal insulation should be considered on older, single skin, properties to reduce the effects of condensation.

Established mould growth can be killed by fungicidal treatment, but this will be short lived unless precautions, such as those listed in the previous section are taken, and suitable fungicidal coatings are incorporated into decorating specifications.

Glixtone of Redditch produces a highly decorative Fungi-Shield Anti-Mould & Black Spot Paint which has a 20 year life span of protection against fungal growth. It is highly decorative, WASHABLE and extremely easy to apply. This high quality non-drip interior
paint is ideal for any area subject to mould, fungus and algae Excellent for kitchens, bathrooms, bedrooms and living rooms.

The Glixtone Fungi-Shield range of products is used by many County Councils, Local Authorities and Housing Associations. Sandwell Homes ˜Supplier/Customer Liaison Officer, Kulvinder Bhopal has this to say of Glixtone Fungi-Shield:

The Fungi-Shield products that we purchase from Glixtone have
produced very satisfying results. The paint does not fade or loose colour and is used inthe majority of our void properties. Ourcustomers are also pleased with the results.

Ian Crampton who is a member of the NLA and also a Director of ˜Ferndown Estates comments:

I would recommend Glixtone Fungi-Shield to anyone who has or suspects the potential of Mould in their properties. It gives a high quality finish to the internal decorations and peace of mind that Mould will not grow on these walls and ceilings.

Glixtone also produce a Sterilising Solution which should always be used prior to painting in order to destroy any germinating spores and then a choice of two finishing coats of either Fungi-Shield Matt or Silk for 20 years protection against fungal growth.
