Johnstone’s Test Triumph

Johnstone’s Test Triumph. Paint manufacturer Johnstone’s products have recently came out on top in a series of unique product trials.

In the first of the recent trials, Johnstone’s Stormshield Smooth Masonry was certified as having ‘Excellent Anti-Carbonating Properties’ by Building Research Establishment (BRE). Anti-carbonation coatings are surface treatments that have a high resistance to carbon dioxide and protect concrete from carbonation by acting as a carbon dioxide barrier.

Johnstone's triple test triumphJohnstone’s Microbarr products, which have been formulated to help reduce the spread of harmful bacteria, have also recently passed a series of tests that pitted the products against several cleaning products commonly used in hospitals – with no adverse effects on the paint.

Johnstone’s third recent success arrived when its Covaplus, Aqua Gloss and Acrylic Eggshell products were tested by the BRE in line with London Underground’s toxic fume criteria and achieved the requirements of BS 6853 :1999. This means that the products are now amongst the select few that meet the strict criteria for use on London’s underground system.
