standing the scrub-room test
Jul 30, 2008
The exceptional hardwearing quality of Paint+ came to the fore when it was used in the theatre scrub room at Greenlane Hospital.
The walls in these rooms are regularly washed down with antibacterial agents, so the paint has to withstand a great deal of rubbing and scrubbing.
"They've tried many products over the years and none lasted more than three months," says Paint+ co-owner Jim Beattie. "We painted 11 of the operating theatre scrub rooms in Paint+ and when the building was demolished three years later, that original coat was still on the wall."
To test the durability of the paint, Paint+ invested in the scrub test equipment used by the American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM). All Paint+ products are tested for durability before being released to the market.
