Paint is applied primarily to provide a protective layer to a surface and to give it aesthetic appeal. However, thanks to technological innovations, paint can do so much more now. Boysen, for example, is dedicated to manufacturing paint products that not only perform exceptionally well when it comes to the basics (a.k.a. durable and beautiful) but can also provide additional useful features. See if any of these will be helpful to you:

1. Excellent Weatherability: Boysen Acrytex

In a country like the Philippines which experiences several typhoons in a year, paint durability may be an important factor to consider. Paint that has excellent weatherability is a plus especially for those in typhoon prone areas.

Boysen Acrytex, to be used for home concrete exteriors, is specially manufactured for durability, including superior performance in unfavorable weather conditions. When applied, Boysen Acrytex forms a watertight, non-porous film that can repel water and prevent seepage.

Unlike water-based paints for concrete, Acrytex is a solvent-based coating. This gives it excellent adhesion and long-term durability making it highly resistant to fading, cracking, flaking, peeling, and discoloration. Learn more about Boysen Acrytex here.

2. Antibacterial Protection: Boysen Healthy Home

We want to keep our loved ones safe and healthy. Homes of families with children may want to opt for paint that can provide antibacterial protection—consider Boysen Healthy Home.

Boysen Healthy Home is a premium, water-based, low odor, lead-free paint recommended for use on interior concrete surfaces (such as the cement walls inside your home). It has antibacterial protection technology that gives an extra layer of defense against bacteria such as E. Coli and salmonella, as well as mildew and fungus.

3. Easy Clean Matte Finish: Virtuoso Silk Touch

Matte paint looks good especially on home interior walls, but it can be more difficult to keep spotless compared to glossier finishes. This is where the special features of Virtuoso Silk Touch come in.

Virtuoso Silk Touch dries to a luxurious silk finish that imparts a sense of warmth and depth to a space. It’s also distinctively smooth to the touch. To keep it looking pristine despite being a matte paint, it’s manufactured with Teflon—yes, the one in your pots and pans. Teflon technology makes it dirt- and stain-resistant. Simply wipe away splashes and spills. Learn more about Virtuoso Silk Touch here.

4. Anti-mosquito: Boysen Bug-Off

Boysen Bug Off, an anti-insect paint, is proven to kill disease-causing insects like mosquitoes using Artilin Anti-Insect Technology. When the bug lands on a Boysen Bug Off painted surface, the microscopic crystals set in the paint layer start to attack the nervous system of the insect. After a short time, depending on the size of the insect and how long it stays on the surface, it drops dead. Aside from mosquitoes, it is also effective against houseflies and most cockroaches.

Is it safe? Absolutely. Boysen Bug Off is formulated with only low amounts of pyrethroids (the anti-insect compound in the paint). It’s enough to kill insects but harmless to other members of the household. The microscopic crystals cannot be inhaled either as they are firmly embedded in the paint once dry.

5. Environment-friendly: Boysen EcoPrimer and Boysen KNOxOUT

It may not seem like it at first glance, but there are ways to be eco-friendly when painting too. For one, choose paint that’s manufactured to be more environment-conscious—like Boysen EcoPrimer and Boysen KNOxOUT.

If you’re painting on bare concrete, you will have to apply primer before your topcoat (a.k.a. the paint color of your choice). For this, consider Boysen EcoPrimer. Aside from being an excellent primer for interior and exterior concrete surfaces, it’s also certified safe for its little to no lead and VOC content. Learn more about Boysen EcoPrimer here.

KNOxOUT, the world’s first-ever air-cleaning paint, was developed by Boysen as a direct response to air pollution. You may have seen the murals along EDSA painted with it. It uses light energy to break down smog-causing nitrogen oxides (NOx), converting them into harmless substances. One square meter of KNOxOUT painted surface is cleaning as much NOx as one mature tree. It’s ideal to paint it in urban areas with high NOx levels like indoor car parks, and exteriors of houses and buildings. Learn more about Boysen KNOxOUT here.
