California Paints Responds to Widespread Flooding Epidemic, Develops STOPZ® Antimicrobial Primer

Published on 2006-08-23. Author : SpecialChem

Andover, Mass. -- To help repair and protect homes from water damage, California Paints, the nation's leading manufacturer of quality paints and coatings, introduces its STOPZ® All- Purpose Mold & Mildew Killing Antimicrobial Primer product. STOPZ, the only EPA-registered product of its kind, is a durable, 100% acrylic coating, developed to withstand most humid conditions that provide ideal environments for fungal growth.

Antimicrobial Primer

"California Paints has answered the consumer demand for a product to eliminate and inhibit unsafe fungal growth in their homes," said Dave Lohr, president of California Paints. "Water-damaged areas can now be protected by the antimicrobial properties of STOPZ. Our innovative coating possesses the most durable technology in existence, surpassing all others in mold and mildew prevention."

STOPZ is a revolutionary antimicrobial coating that kills residual fungus while also inhibiting future growth and spread on the surface. Thanks to California Paints, basements and other once-flooded rooms plagued by mold and mildew damage can finally be restored.

"Mold and mildew contamination is an increasingly problematic and costly issue for homeowners, especially surrounding the flood seasons," continues Lohr. "Keeping our customers top-of-mind, we created a product with fungicidal characteristics to kill lingering mold after pre-cleaning, while simultaneously preventing future mold growth."

STOPZ is a low-odor, water-based polymer that tackles mold growth from water damage, destroying microorganisms and spores on-the-spot. Easily applied by brush, it is recommended for use on interior wall surfaces such as plaster, wallboard, drywall, concrete, masonry block, wood, primed metal and galvanized metal.
