Speaking of SW,
They have a new paint that is supposed to kill viruses and mildew upon contact.
I don't think it will go anywhere with the public or with Pros.
The reason being, that the list price is over eighty dollars! Now that's a premium price for an unknown paint product, so there is a huge risk in using this stuff because nobody knows how it will act over the long run.
Consumers will not be able to afford it. Contrators will not want to use it because it will cut into their profit margins. Hell, many Paint Contractors don't even use the regular Premium Paints, let alone a specialty paint costing that much!
There are plenty of way to address the problems the paint is supposed to address (as far as killing on contact). There are cleaning solutions that kill AIDS virus, flu virus, and the lot. I'm not sure if this new paint keeps these viruses at bay on the dried paint film, or if this is even an issue in hospitals etc.
Time will tell with a product like this. You wont see Me using it. That's for sure!
