Johnstone’s Trade Launches Longest Lasting Wall Paint Yet

Johnstone’s Trade has launched UltraLast Matt, a premium quality matt wall paint that is resilient to initial scuffing and marking, and easy to clean, helping specifiers extend maintenance cycles on their projects and keep high-footfall interiors looking their best for longer.

Certified with BRE, Johnstone’s Trade UltraLast Matt comes with an Environmental Product Declaration (EPD) that attests to the product’s environmental impact. The paint is 99.9% VOC-free, having a reduced impact on indoor air quality and helping architects work towards green building accreditations.

The manufacturer’s longest lasting wall paint yet, Johnstone’s Trade UltraLast Matt has been formulated with Resilient Scuff Technology, which helps protect the painted surface from the initial scuff marking. This makes for a longer lasting finish in busy environments such as schools, accommodation, hospitals, shops and other commercial and public buildings.

If painted surfaces do become marked, the paint technology allows the matt coating to be easily cleaned, withstanding more than 10,000 scrubs, which reduces the frequency of maintenance needed. In-built stain resistance makes the painted surface last even longer, while unavoidable stains can be removed with most commercial cleaning solutions.

“Sustainability is paramount in the built environment, and architects and designers are therefore increasingly looking for materials and technologies that minimise the environmental impact of their projects,” said Jamie Taylor, Product Manager – PPG UK&I. “We’ve created Johnstone’s Trade UltraLast Matt to keep interior walls looking their best for longer, even in high-traffic areas. The low emission levels of the paint also means it has a reduced impact on indoor air quality, an important component of green building standards such as BREEAM, LEED and WELL.”

Johnstone’s Trade UltraLast Matt is available in all PPG Voice of Colour shades, including the 2024 Colour of the Year, Limitless (PPG1091-3).
