KAMPALA. Hardly two months after introducing Weatherguard paint that protects walls against hot and dry weather, Sadolin has launched another type of paint that guards the wall against mould.

Sadolin Wallguard is the new exterior wall paint that offers a smooth finish, colour and also features unique mould and moisture resist technology.

While speaking at the launch of the paint at Serena Hotel on Wednesday evening, Deon Nieuwoudt, the Commercial Director East Africa at AkzoNobel said that Wallgaurd paint was developed by an international task team to meet the harsh local climatic requirements in Uganda.

“The new Sadolin Wallguard that was specially made for Uganda offers ultimate protection and it gives long lasting protection in extreme humidity,” said Nieuwoudt. 

“The new range of exterior paint products also boasts Sadolin Roofguard a pure acrylic paint that offers rooftops, excellent protection and durability; Sadolin Rainsheild, a flexible, fibre-reinforced water and crack resistant surface preparation waterproofing product for areas prone to water leaks and Dampshield, a low-odour, quick drying water based preparation product that stops the destructive effect of rising and penetrating damp.”

Nieuwoudt added these 4 new specialist exterior products together with Sadolin Weatherguard take exterior protection in harsh and humid climates to a new level.

Commenting on the new product, Nathalie Sweeney, Marketing Director AkzoNobel Sub-Sahara Africa said, “We are thrilled to launch Sadolin Wallguard, leading a comprehensive range of protective paints for walls, roofs and exterior surface preparation to address the damaging effects of humidity.”  

“Humidity and mould can really make a house look old before it’s time but now with the new Sadolin Wallguard with Mouldex Moisture Resist, walls will look cleaner and mould-free for longer,” Sweeney added.

In a separate interview, Nieuwoudt said that Wall guard is going to be a little expensive than other paints considering the technology that has been invested in it. He added that they are going to embark on customer training to help the clients identify the best paint to suit the reigning climatic conditions.

“This is a state of the art product so it will be slightly expensive,” he said.
