Assalamualaikum and Olla everyone! 

What a time to be living in right? I am always amazed by the human ability to adapt and the innovation that we came up with. Well, today I would like to share with you about paint that can help to mitigate the growth of bacteria and viruses such as as the hand, foot and mouth disease (HFMD), influenza A (H1N1), Escherichia coli and Staphylococcus aureus, in addition to the human coronavirus (strain 229E), when in contact with the paint film.

The Nippon Paint VirusGuard was tested against the Human Coronavirus, ATCC VR-740, strain 229E by Analytical Lab Group earlier this year. The VirusGuard demonstrated a 99.9% reduction in viral titer upon contact of the virus on the paint film. The human coronavirus (strain 229E) is the first coronavirus strain identified in the family of viruses, linked to common cold symptoms and respiratory tract infections. Amazing right? 

First, I would like to thank everyone that works hard behind the scene ensuring everything goes smoothly the other day. It is all about the details, I noticed that each floor have an usher and the strict hygiene measure. Everyone is doing their very best to ensure SOP is being followed. Highly appreciated. 

Congratulations Nippon Paint for another milestone! On the left is Datin Wong Meng Lee she is the Assistant General Manager of Marketing Nippon Paint Malaysia and on the right is Mr Yaw Seng Heng the Group Managing Director Nippon Paint Malaysia Group. I also found out it is Mr Yaw first job till now. That is a plausible passion and loyalty. 

After the opening speech, Datin Wong share more about the product. Also shared a few clips of how Silver Ion help to keep our indoor environment cleaner. Datin Wong Meng Lee,  said, “As a market leader in total coating solutions, Nippon Paint is at the forefront of innovation and is committed to continue seeking opportunities, new technologies and effective solutions for our consumers and stakeholders. Leveraging on the Silver Ion Technology for its anti-viral and anti-bacterial properties, we aim to create and ensure homes, workspaces and public premises are safe and conducive especially during this pandemic, alongside other preventive measures.”

Ideal for any indoor spaces, the Nippon Paint VirusGuard contains the following properties:

·       Anti-viral

·       Anti-bacterial

·       Ultra-low Volatile Organic Compound (VOC)

·       Superior washability

·       Scrub resistance

·       Mold and fungus resistance

·       Long-lasting colour

·       Easy and hassle-free maintenance

The Nippon Paint VirusGuard is an environmentally-friendly coating solution that also comes with the Singapore Green Label Test certification. 


This is how it works. Silver ion helps to deactivate the virus, stops its production, and also inhibits growth. The been sending the paint to be tested by an independent lab and the result shows it is 99% effective in mitigating the growth and viruses.  So, if you are leaning on your walls or your kids touching the walls then rest assured that your walls are germs free! 

Dr Li-Yen Chang is an Associate Professor, Department of Medical Microbiology, Faculty of Medicine, University Malaya.She shared lots of insight about Covid-19 coronaviruses that we are currently battling and some facts about all the other viruses.  Thank you Dr Chang Li-Yen for an insightful session. I bet not many of you know that I was a microbiology student back then haha... 

Actually attending this event has opened my eyes to my cleaning routine. I always mop and vacuum my floor but didn't do much for my walls. God knows how much bacteria are on them LOL. I really considering repaint my daughter's room with Nippon Paint VirusGuard and maybe the kitchen next. 

Nippon is not a new name when it comes to invention and the latest paint technology. They are also the first to come up with an odorless range (which is so much healthier for us!). Thank you everyone in Nippon for doing your best to offer products that not only functional but safe for our family. 

I am also very happy as I get to catch up with my blogger peers, Kak Ayu and Kak Fa . Love them!! Hope to meet again in the future. Hug Hug!! Do visit their blog and send them some love k? 

One of the most informative session was during the forum. I asked a silly question ( I was just curious). I asked, " if we mix the paint with water would it affect consistency?". If you are like me and wondering the answer is " The water will vapourize with time, but as long the silver ion is there on the walls then it will still be doing its job".  I hope it gave you some assurance. You can always check Nippon Paint's website to get more info on how much water is advised. I was told it is around 5% but I believe it also may depend on the type of paint you are having. Always best to be sure and check the official website. 

Alright, we are at the end of this blogpost. I hope you find them informative. If you are in the market to do a home makeover or look for more ways to protect your family, do consider Nippon Paint VirusGuard k? It will be one of the best investments you make! 

Talk to you soon. In the meantime, dont forget to take it easy and smile.
