Just what the doctor ordered

From the Resene product range, Resene ClinicalCote

Resene ClinicalCote is a low odour, washable waterborne paint finish formulated with anti-microbial silver for use on broadwall areas in buildings such as hospitals, rest homes, medical centres and clinics.

Resene ClinicalCote

Anti-microbial silver protection is internationally recognised as a safe and healthy method of deodorising and sanitising surfaces. A very low VOC formula, Resene ClinicalCote is Environmental Choice approved and has less than 4 grams of VOC per litre.

In keeping with the modern trend of lower sheen finishes, Resene ClinicalCote is available as a low sheen or satin finish. The low sheen variant has a desirable low sheen finish from all angles. Both are designed to withstand alcohol and glycol containing hospital cleaners to keep them looking their best. The painted surface can be cleaned just seven days after application.

Use Resene ClinicalCote on walls and complement with Resene waterborne enamels on trim and joinery and Resene Ceiling Paint on ceilings for a very low VOC finish.

Resene ClinicalCote is available from Resene in a wide range of over 800 Resene colours suitable for residential and commercial work. See Data Sheet D318.

Being green is part of our DNA

Sustainability and being green is something we've grown up with at Resene. In the 1950s we introduced waterborne paint to the local market. We were the first New Zealand paint company to offer an extensive range of Environmental Choice approved paints in 1996.

We’ve also worked hard on solvent reduction. The average per litre VOC (volatile solvent) levels of Resene decorative paint sales have dropped by over 90% since 1980.

In 2007 Resene Zylone Sheen Zero was introduced offering all the benefits of popular Resene Zylone Sheen without adding unwanted VOCs. And with Resene decorative tinters with no added VOCs, we can tint thousands of colours without adding any VOCs to the paint.

And to complete the sustainability cycle, we run a world first innovative paint recovery and recycling programme called Resene PaintWise.

Since the very early days of our company’s development we’ve had the ‘green gene.’ It’s simply part of our heritage of providing quality sustainable solutions for our customers and the environment.
