Antibacterial coating opens up new markets for SCR

Biomaster partner SCR (Suspended Ceiling Restoration Ltd) has launched a premium quality paint for internal walls and ceilings that can help save energy costs while offering a more hygienic and mould-free, finish whilst reducing condensation by up to 90%.

SCR has added INSUL8ED to the company’s specialist range of exclusive paints.  It costs about the same as a good quality emulsion but due to the thermal barrier saves up to 25% of heat loss through walls and ceilings when compared to a standard emulsion.

INSUL8ED is effectively an anti-mould, anti-condensation, antibacterial emulsion in one. The active Biomaster ingredient in the paint inhibits bacterial growth such as Asp Niger (black mould), MRSA, E.Coli and other common bacteria for the life of the coating. 

The paint also incorporates microsphere technology which creates a thermal barrier within a room and has a thermal conductivity 5 times lower than a standard paint when dry. Surfaces will physically feel warmer once decorated even when the heating is off, which in turn will drastically reduce cold bridging around window reveals, resulting in condensation reductions of up to 90%. The paint can be used to help save energy costs and reduce carbon footprints, whilst offering a first class finish on surfaces.
INSUL8ED is now available at over 600 Travis Perkins branches and over 140 Brewers decorator’s merchants throughout the UK and is listed and available to order at any Jewsons store nationaly and is already being widely used by housing associations, schools and councils and private clients nationwide.
SCR Managing Director Mark Beighton says: We are extremely proud of our new product because it does in a single application the job of up to four separate products, which in many cases can be individually more expensive than  INSUL8ED. With the added ingredient of Biomaster we have been able to take our coating to the next level and open up new markets such as healthcare and the food industry.”
