Nippon Paint, recently launched a campaign to galvanise healthcare facilities around Sri Lanka with their latest product 3-in-1 MediFresh which is an antibacterial coating developed with Silver and Zinc ions to keep disease-causing microorganisms at bay.

The project to insulate hospitals around the country was initiated at the Infectious Diseases Hospital (IDH) in Colombo and has since expanded to several key cities across the country. 

The product has been clinically proven to provide protection from disease-causing viruses as per extensive research carried out by two reputed laboratories in Singapore: the Productivity and Standards Board (PSB) and TÜV SÜD PSB,  a company spokesman said.

General Manager, Nippon Lanka Paint, Nemantha Abeysinghe said, “We are proud to be one of the first paint manufacturers globally to introduce a unique product going beyond the cosmetic and aesthetic functions of paint. 3-in-1 MediFresh has received an overwhelmingly positive response from the local market so far given that it is easy to use and can be applied over a wide range of surfaces without having to remove the existing layer of paint.”

“Based on available research, it is evident that this product can offer protection from a few different types of disease-causing pathogens; 3-in-1 MediFresh eliminates the need for constant disinfecting which is a costly, time consuming and labour intensive process,” he said. The paint is an acrylic elastomeric coating for interior use which protects the environment from many types of bacteria.
