Anti Bacterial has been the brain child of Prostar Paints since one of it’s directors came across an article in the local news media describing the unnecessary and sad loss of 21 new born babie’s lives at Mahatma Gandhi Memorial Hospital in Phoenix, Durban during the course of June 2005. According to that newspaper, six outbreaks had been reported in KZN earlier on during that year. According to his knowledge a common practice among many international hospitals was the use of Anti Bacterial paint. This was the stimulus that set off a journey into researching and developing their very own Anti Bacterial Paint.

While antiseptics such as alcohol are highly effective over a short period of time, Anti Bacterial protection lasts for the life of the paint and always works
to protect against bacteria.
The technology it uses stems from Buckman Laboratories which dates back to 1954 and is the most widely tested antibacterial and antifungal
ingredients in the world and has a long history of safe use. It has been proven effective in 20,000 tests at over 27 independent laboratories around the
Anti Bacterial technology is incorporated into the paint at the manufacturing stage. It does not wash or wear off, lasts the life of the paint and forms a
long lasting physical barrier against bacteria.
When microbes such as bacteria, mould and mildew come in contact with the painted surface, Anti Bacterial paint protection acts to deplete the cells of
important metal ions and disrupts their ability to generate energy, which slows their growth and ultimately causes them to die.
Prostar’s Fresh Anti Bacterial paints effective ingredient works continuously to keep painted surfaces cleaner and safer.

Prostar Fresh Anti Bacterial provides protection against bacteria such as E. coli, Salmonella, Listeria, Golden Staph and the growth of mould, mildew
and fungus on painted surfaces such as walls and ceilings in bedrooms, kitchens and bathrooms, as well as damp areas of the home.
Research indicates that many walls in hospitals are covered in unhealthy, disease causing bacteria.
Unfortunately, normal hygiene practices do not usually include regular cleaning and washing of walls.
Research confirms that many hospitals have limited knowledge about healthy hygiene practices, particularly in relation to food and patient handling.
This increasing problem has led to the development of a growing number of innovative products such as Prostar Fresh Anti Bacterial which are
designed to keep our hospitals healthier, cleaner and safer.
