Product Description

PERMA-WHITE® Mold & Mildew-Proof Interior Paint protects itself against the damaging effects of unsightly mold and mildew as it brightens and beautifies ceilings, walls, trim and other related paintable interior surfaces for years. It is specifically designed to withstand the harsh conditions of high-humidity and mildew-prone areas in residential, commercial and Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) remediation environments.

PERMA-WHITE is made from premium latex acrylic resins to produce a washable, blister-proof, and stain-resistant finish. It is self-priming and will adhere to any sound surface. It bonds to existing oil base or glossy paints – even Formica® and ceramic tile – without sanding.

PERMA-WHITE also seals flat paint, new drywall, cement block and concrete. It is ideal for bathrooms, basements, locker rooms, laundry rooms, hotel guest rooms, kitchens, closets, etc - any area where conditions of persistent high humidity, frequent temperature changes and poor air circulation may promote mold and mildew growth and cause deterioration of the paint film.
