Microban


Microban International is the global leader in built-in antimicrobial product protection. The brand has become a consumer Trustmark for cleaner, fresher and more durable products. For over 35 years, Microban® has offered the world’s broadest portfolio of antimicrobial solutions. These scientifically proven formulations are utilised by more than 1,000 companies in over 30 countries worldwide.
 
Microban and Taubmans work together to deliver a range of decorative paints with built-in antimicrobial protection. Microban technology is engineered into the molecular structure of the paint, actively inhibiting bacteria, mould, and mildew growth on surfaces where the paint is applied.
 
How Does Microban Antimicrobial Technology Work?
The antimicrobial technology penetrates the cell wall of the microbe and continuously disrupts key cell functions so that the microbe cannot function, grow, or reproduce on the treated surface. By creating an inhospitable environment for microorganisms like bacteria, mould, and mildew, built-in antimicrobial technology protects the painted surface from staining, bad odours, and premature degradation.

Key Benefits of Taubmans Paint Featuring Microban Technology:

  • Keeps painted surfaces cleaner and fresher for longer: built-in antimicrobial protection actively inhibits microbial growth that can cause stains, odours, and premature degradation on painted surfaces.
  • Has an extended shelf-life: antimicrobial technology has been proven to prolong the life-cycle of paint products. The efficacy against bateria and mould helps to minimise the risk of premature product degradation, ensuring the paint remains usable for longer.
  • Complements normal cleaning practices: Microban technology keeps painted surfaces cleaner in-between regular cleaning.
  • Delivers greater peace of mind: an added level of surface protection helps to alleviate cleanliness anxieties - leaving you to worry less about microbes and focus more on the DIY job at hand.

Key Products:

  • Taubmans Pure Performance and Taubmans Easycoat, powered by Microban, are ideal for use on walls and ceilings in bedrooms, kitchens, and bathrooms as well as damp, high humidity areas. They’re also great for delivering an added level of cleanliness protection to ensure enhanced peace of mind.

Microban® technology is not designed to protect the users of this product or others against disease-causing microorganisms. Microban Products Company makes neither direct nor implied health claims. Normal cleaning practices should be maintained.

 
 

LOW_VOC.png

Low & Very Low VOC


VOCs (Volatile Organic Compounds) are indoor air pollutants commonly found in paints, adhesives, sealants and carpets. They are carbon-based organic chemicals which evaporate (off-gas) at room temperature. VOCs are a broad group and some people may be allergic or sensitised to some VOCs. PPG has established market-leading performance standards for the development of low VOC products.

Using ranges with low VOC means that air pollutants in the coatings have been reduced to create a better interior space while painting. Low VOC contents assist architects, building owners and homebuilders in building green.
With Taubmans, painting green does not mean sacrificing coating performance.

Benefit  

  • Painting with Low and Very Low VOC products give less fumes, less indoor pollution and less harm to health and the environment
  • Low VOC and hence low odour increase efficiency as the painted room can be entered and used sooner
 
Products Very Low VOC: 
  • Taubmans Pure Performance Wall, Ceiling and Prep
 
Products Low VOC: 
  • Taubmans Pure Performance Water Based Enamels
  • Taubmans Endure
  • Taubmans Water-Based Enamel
  • Taubmans Ultimate Enamel
  • Taubmans Easycoat
  • Taubmans Armawall

Superior-Dirt-Shedding-Formulation.png


Superior Dirt Shedding Formulation


Taubmans All Weather and Taubmans Professional Exterior have Superior Dirt Shedding Formulas.  

Superior Dirt Shedding Formulas create a crosslinked surface using acrylic binders and UV exposure. As the coating cures, this crosslinking technology makes paint resistant to dirt as dirt, dust and grime cannot easily penetrate the surface. This creates a surface which can shed dirt easier as it sits on top of the paint and can be easily washed off with water.  

This technology enables exterior painted surfaces to remain cleaner for longer as any ingrained dirt can be easily washed from the surface.

Superior Dirt Shedding Formulations keep surfaces looking newer for longer. 


Benefits 

  • Protects against dirt and dust 
  • Sheds dirt easily during cleaning  
  • Leaves surfaces cleaner for longer
