Anti-Condensation, Damp & Mould Paints
Problem-solving paint to tackle moisture & humidity
Professional Paint Supplies has an excellent selection of anti-condensation, damp and mould paints available from trusted brands such as Advanced Technologies, Coo-Var, Rustins, Sherwin-Williams and Zinsser.
Anti-condensation, damp and mould paints contain mould inhibitors, which help reduce condensation in areas prone to heat and high humidity, such as kitchens and bathrooms.
What is the difference between anti-mould and anti-condensation paint? Well, anti-condensation paint contains insulating materials that improve the thermal performance of surfaces it is applied to. It can reduce wetness on walls and associated mould if condensation was caused by a cold surface. Anti-mould paint contains fungicides that help kill mould spores and prevent their spread.
Do I need anti Mould or anti condensation paint? Not only do the damp spots leave unflattering stains on the ceilings and walls, but condensation favours the formation of mould and mildew. Aesthetics apart, these fungi can cause respiratory inflammations and allergies. That is why treating your walls with a high-quality anti-condensation paint is essential.
Do anti-condensation paints work? Walls painted with anti-condensation paint feel warmer to the touch, as the heat from your hand is being reflected instead of being drawn to the colder surface of the wall and escaping. As the air is insulated against the colder wall surface, condensation and mould growth is drastically reduced.
Will damp proof paint stop condensation? While damp proof paints are excellent products and are part of dealing with a damp problem, they are not a fix-it solution that handles the issue entirely. In most cases, condensation comes from poor ventilation and without handling that issue, the problem will keep coming back.
Most paints that reduce condensation, damp and mould also have excellent stain covering properties that will not only prevent unsightly stains and reduce discolouration but will also cover them as well. These products are the most effective at blocking and covering stains such as grease, water marks, heavy nicotine and more. Plus, most can be used under emulsion paint or wallpaper and offer a high-quality pigment that does not yellow.
