How does Johnstones Microbarr Anti-Bacterial Coatings work?

The key ingredient in Johnstone’s Microbarr is silver. Whilst many anti-bacterial wall coverings use chemicals to prevent bacterial growth, Microbarr uses silver ions which form part of the film and prevent bacteria from multiplying.

One of the issues with chemical based solutions is that as the paint is continually wiped down, the chemical content is gradually removed – reducing its effectiveness. The silver in Microbarr cannot be removed by wiping or washing.

The silver ions present within the coating attack bacteria in three different ways to cause the reproductive functions within the bacteria to break down, thus preventing bacterial growth.

Research has shown that silver ions are bactericidal against nearly 150 strains of bacteria. Also, as the silver has three modes of action rather than one, it is extremely unlikely that micro-organisms could develop resistance to it.

Testing. Unlike many similar anti-bacterial coatings, Johnstone’s Microbarr has been tested to incredibly stringent Japanese Industry standards*. These have proven that Johnstone’s Microbarr stops the spread of: 

  • e.Coli.
  • MRSA.
  • Pseudomonas Aeruginosa.

The Japanese JIS Z 2801 test method works by introducing live bacteria on to the coating and incubating it for 24 hours. The inocula are then washed off and the remaining live bacteria counted in order to determine the effectiveness of the coating. The tests exhibit the impressive rate of decline; 99.9% of bacteria are eradicated within 18 hours where Microbarr has been used, in comparison to slight reductions with standard coatings under the same, independent test conditions. *Based on Acrylic Matt and Acrylic Eggshell.

Where do I use it? Johnstone’s Microbarr Anti-Bacterial Coatings have been developed for use in areas where hygiene protection is required. Common usage will include wall and ceiling areas in establishments such as: 

  • Hotels.
  • Offices.
  • Public places. 
  • Workplaces.
  • Hospital wards.
  • Operating theatres.
  • Doctors’ surgeries.
  • Veterinary hospitals.
  • Abattoirs.
  • Schools.
  • Retirement homes.

Johnstone’s Microbarr Anti-Bacterial Coatings have been developed to give excellent adhesion over suitably prepared wood, metal, wall and ceilings ensuring all substrates in an area can be covered. Johnstone’s Microbarr has been developed to be both tough and highly durable, which creates a seamless finish. All products in the Microbarr range contain a fungicide/algicide to inhibit algal and fungal growth which are damaging to coatings. Microbarr is therefore particularly suitable in environments subject to wear and tear, heavy traffic and condensation. 

Johnstone’s Microbarr is tough, durable and proven to protect against over 150 strains of bacteria. Quite simply, wherever the highest standards of hygiene are required, Johnstone’s Microbarr, when used alongside regular cleaning procedures, provides the perfect solution.

Johnstones Microbarr Anti-Bacterial Interior Coatings  Testimonials

We recently worked with Gerry and his team at IPC on a project involving the recoating of our indoor car park and loading bay. The job was not without complications as tenants, deliveries and waste management all needed to be accommodated. IPC were totally flexible in helping us to manage the logistics and worked hard to ensure that the project was delivered on time and within budget. We were very pleased with the quality of the work and the way it has helped to transform the area. We are happy to recommend IPC and will be working with them again on future projects.

- Tim Mullin,LSP

The finished area was very impressive and to a very good standard.  What was more impressive was the "added value" provided by IPC by way of overcoming the significant problems at a challenging time of year so that the area was ready for use on the first day of the new year.  Excellent service in every area and highly recommended.

- Tris,West London College

Having searched the web for local floor refurbishment companies we came across a few which included IPC, having asked for quotations from a few and carried out site visits we found the finish from IPC Ltd to be the best option.

Gerry, their project manager came across as very enthusiastic and cost reasonable against other quotations.

- Andy Maddocks,Warehouse & Facilities Manager at Grafton International

We found IPC Ltd to be a very professional company from Diamond Industrial Painting Ltd. Floor coating for ITV Newsquote to completion. They completed the painting of our new studio floor on time, for a competitive price to a very high standard. We would use them again without hesitation.

- Melissa Kelly,ITV News Central

IPC Ltd.previously undertook works at two blocks that we manage. The service provided was excellent from start to finish and prices were competitive. All works were completed to a high standard and any snagging was dealt with in a timely manner.
We would certainly recommend IPC Ltd

- Melanie Waters,Sullivan Mitchell

IPC Ltd carried out the painting of a school kitchen for my company the work was completed on time and to a high standard

- Steve Saunders,Baileys Catering Ltd

I was let down badly at the last minute on a commercial exterior painting job by a local firm, when I approached Gerry late on a Friday night for help, he turned out on the Saturday morning, produced a full quotation over the weekend and had a team on site the same week to start the job, in addition to this it was all carried out in dreadful weather conditions
It makes a refreshing change in the day and age to deal with a company as switched on to a customers needs as IPC Ltd.

Give them a try, you won’t be disappointed.

- Gary Trainor,Regional Manager - TruckEast Limited

When our 20,000 sq ft retail unit was accidentally filled with smoke IPC Ltd. were able to quickly quote and carry out repainting of surfaces without disruption to our business. Excellent service

- Neil Jarratt,Branch Manager - TBS building supplies Ltd

During the summer IPC Ltd won a contract to re-decorate the outside of our training centre in Harborne, Birmingham. They completed this large job on time and within the budget, and we have been very happy with the result.
