"People with asthma and allergies are more susceptible to triggers found in many common household products, including paint, but all Australians should be cognizant of the products they choose to use in their homes"

MELBOURNE, Sept. 3, 2019 – PPG today announced that TAUBMANS® Endure interior paint by PPG has been named a preferred choice for interior painting projects by the National Asthma Council Australia’s Sensitive Choice program. The recognition is part of a new Healthy Homes video series launched for National Asthma Week, 1-7 September.

An estimated 2.5 million Australians have asthma, many of whom are also among the one in fivepeople with allergies. The educational videos aim to help all Australians understand and alleviate common triggers when undertaking home improvement projects.

The video dedicated to interior painting projects showcases Taubmans Endure paint by PPG as a preferred choice for health-conscious consumers and includes expert commentary from Cherie Barber, AUSTRALIA’S RENOVATION QUEEN™.

“People with asthma and allergies are more susceptible to triggers found in many common household products, including paint, but all Australians should be cognizant of the products they choose to use in their homes,” explained Adele Taylor, Sensitive Choice program manager.

Taylor adds, “Taubmans paint has been a Sensitive Choice partner for more than 10 years. The Taubmans Endure products that display the blue butterfly logo have been rigorously reviewed by our independent product advisory panel and proven to offer a potential benefit for people with asthma or allergies. This is through reduced contact with triggers, including the smell of paint, mould and some volatile organic compounds (VOCs).”

Taubmans Endure paint by PPG that is approved by Sensitive Choice has low VOC emissions of less than 16 grams per litre. It is also low in odour and provides superior protection against mould.

Taubmans Endure paint provides eight-in-one multi-benefit protection that helps to keep our homes clean and healthy year after year,” said Barber. “It has anti-microbial properties, and once dry, the paint actually inhibits the future growth of mould and mildew.”

Manufactured on Australian shores, Taubmans Endure paint by PPG is also engineered with NANOGUARD® advanced technology to provide a strong protective shield against everyday dirt and stains. The paint is wash, stain and scrub resistant, enabling surfaces to be cleaned repeatedly without compromising the quality of the paint finish. It is also currently the only interior paint range in Australia backed by a lifetime guarantee+, providing extra peace of mind for do-it-yourselfers.
