- Mould resistant paint for bathroom walls and ceilings.
A highly mould resistant paint for walls and ceilings. Low sheen (but not matt), stain resistant, moisture resistant and steam resistant.
Also prevents the growth of mildew and algae.
The product will remain effective on normal walls and ceilings for 10 year plus. It is not a long-term solution for walls in showers that have water running down them daily as the active mould resistant ingredient gets used up faster. It would be more practical to tile these walls or paint over them with our glossy Clear Top Coat which is easy to wipe clean (if wall is smooth).
Kill existing mould before applying this paint
If you need this paint you may well already have a mould problem. Buy a Fungal Wash (also sometimes incorrectly called Biocidal Wash) from your local hardware. Apply the Fungal Wash to all mouldy areas and leave it for at least 24 hrs. This will kill the existing mould that is feeding on your old paint. After 24 hours or longer, wipe clean with a damp cloth and repeat treatment for heavy mould areas. After that the existing mould should be dead and you can paint over it with our Bathroom Paint.
We only supply Brilliant White on this website. White is usually the color of choice for ceilings but you can have our painted at your local paint hardware.
Surface Preparation and Priming
Prepare and Prime as per normal acrylic paints.
There is a very simple and useful pdf document that can be quickly downloaded from the Technical Page of this website. It is called "Preparation and Priming".
For new unpainted ceiling board and plastered walls we suggest that you prime these with a Plaster Primer and then paint our Bathroom Paint over the Plaster Primer.
If your existing paint work is an oil based glossy paint then sand it to remove some of the gloss and apply a coat of Universal Undercoat (available at any paint store). Then apply our Bathroom Paint over the Universal Undercoat.
(Always use a dust mask when sanding and vacuum up well after sanding oil based paints as they may contain lead.)
Keep out of reach of children
All our products should be kept out of reach of children under 5 years and anybody who may tend to place items or liquids in their mouths should be supervised. Even packing can become a choking hazard.
