Johnstone’s Trade UltraLast - The Sustainable Choice for High-Footfall Interiors

Johnstone’s Trade UltraLast - The Sustainable Choice for High-Footfall Interiors

Sustainability is no longer just a preference, but a necessity. Johnstone’s Trade by PPG introduces UltraLast Matt, a premium quality wall paint designed to meet the highest environmental standards without compromising on performance.

Resilient and Durable

UltraLast Matt is engineered with Resilient Scuff Technology, ensuring that high-footfall interiors remain pristine for longer periods.
This innovative formulation resists initial scuffing and marking, making it an ideal solution for busy environments such as schools, hospitals, and commercial spaces. Even when surfaces do become marked, the matt coating can be easily cleaned, boasting high levels of stain resistance, and enduring over 10,000 scrubs.

Environmentally Conscious

Committed to reducing environmental impact, UltraLast Matt is 99.9% VOC-free, as verified by third-party testing EPDs. This low emission level significantly diminishes the paint’s impact on indoor air quality, making it a safer and healthier choice for building occupants. Furthermore, UltraLast Matt is certified with BRE and has been rigorously fire safety tested in accordance with EN 13501-1:2018 and IBE Food certified, ensuring compliance with the highest safety standards.

Benefits of Low Emission Paints for Health and Environment

Low emission paints have a significant advantage over standard paints due to their positive impact on both health and the environment. BREEAM®️, LEED®️, and WELL have established guidelines for limiting the concentration of formaldehyde and VOC emissions, going beyond the VOC content within the can to focus on the emissions released from the paint once it is dry.

Starting in 2018, the BREEAM®️ New Construction manual requires an Indoor Air Quality Plan at RIBA Stage 2. This serves as a prerequisite that encourages architects to consider air pollution during the early stages of the design process and develop a mitigation strategy to reduce VOC content and emissions.

Eurofins' Indoor Air Comfort Test is widely used to classify building material emissions. PPG is proud to have a growing number of products that meet the VOC Emissions requirements for Indoor Air Comfort GOLD and Exemplary levels, latest of them being UltraLast.

Aiding Specifiers in Sustainable Building Practices

PPG is committed to sustainability and helping their partners protect and beautify the world.
For specifiers aiming to minimize environmental footprints, UltraLast Matt aligns perfectly with green building standards of LEED®️ and BREEAM®️. The product’s eco-friendly credentials are supported by third-party green certifications, contributing to achieving credits in major green building standards.

Johnstone’s Trade UltraLast Matt is more than just paint; it’s a commitment to sustainability, durability, and the well-being of building occupants. Choose UltraLast Matt for a finish that lasts, and a planet that thrives.
