EPA tested and registered, Sherwin-Williams® Paint Shield® was developed for use in hospitals and health-care facilities.
Microbe Protection with Sherwin-Williams® Paint Shield®
Sherwin-Williams® Paint Shield® has the ability to kill certain types of harmful bacteria within two hours of exposure.

Find out if microbicidal paint is the right interior paint option for you.
When it comes to choosing paint for the interior of your home or business , the many elements of the decision can feel overwhelming. From finding shades that complement the furniture and interior design nicely, to pricing each brand and getting clear on texture, there are many decision points that play a role in interior paint selection. For organizations like hospitals and schools, these projects can be large undertakings due to the sheer size and total area of the interior walls.
Although they can be overwhelming, options are a good thing. In the last few years, a new option for interior paint has been developed, and it goes beyond simple qualities like color and durability. In addition to style and professional quality, some paint projects can even offer health benefits. With microbicidal paint, you can rest easy knowing your interior paint is working to kill harmful germs and bacteria within your home or business.
What Is Microbicidal Paint?
Some paint, such as Sherwin-Williams® Paint Shield®, has the power to kill bacteria on the surface of your walls. Paint Shield® is EPA-registered and is the first paint that can kill 99.9% of bacteria¹.
The implications of this new paint technology are groundbreaking for hospitals, schools, nursing homes, and personal residences. With the power to kill harmful bacteria, microbicidal paint can drastically improve health conditions and patient outcomes within hospitals. The CDC estimates that about one in every 25 US hospital patients contract at least one infection while in the hospital². Every effort to cut down risk for patients and staff is crucial.
Within two hours of exposure, microbicidal paint kills 99.9% of bacteria such as:
- Staph (Staphylococcus aureus)
- E. coli (Escherichia coli)
- MRSA (Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus)
- VRE (Vancomycin-resistant Enterococcus faecalis)
- Enterobacter aerogenes
At home, most people have become more cautious than ever before about keeping surfaces and shared areas clean. However, in most households, individuals still do not take the time to regularly wash or disinfect their walls - especially not every two hours. Now, microbicidal paint options provide a great way to stay on top of disinfecting practices within the home.¹ https://www.swpaintshield.com
