What more could you ask of a paint? Not only does Little Knights paint provide a deep, lasting and beautiful colour, it helps to protect you and your family from harmful bacteria and moulds. When germs enter the body, it is typically via the mouth. Young children in particular often put their fingers (or anything else that’s within reach) into their mouths. While we might struggle to help you enforce a good hand-washing regime, we can give you peace of mind that when those little fingers touch a wall painted with Little Knights they are not spreading or picking up bacteria.
The anti-bacterial additive used in Little Knights paint is a unique product developed by our parent company, Tetramass, a specialist manufacturer of bespoke additives and coatings. With many worldwide regulatory approvals, the antibacterial additive is supported by the Health & Safety Executive, Biocidal Products Regulations, Environmental Protection Agency and the Food and Drug Administration. It is fully certificated and proven effective against ALL known bacteria (even antibiotic-resistant strains) including those that cause sickness, diarrhoea, meningitis, MRSA and salmonella.
Mould and mildew grows in humid, warm and poorly ventilated places. Once established it will quickly mature and send spores floating throughout the home, which can cause respiratory problems. However, the antibacterial paint properties of Little Knights make is resistant to mould and mildew.
While there are other types of antibacterial coatings available, many of them use silver nanoparticle technology as the antibacterial agent. While effective in the short term, it has been shown to migrate out of the paint over time, eventually leaving the surface unprotected. By contrast, the Little Knights antibacterial agent is inherent throughout the structure of the paint. This means that the antimicrobial properties remain fully effective for as long as there is paint on the wall. It also means that you can wipe clean the painted surface without compromising it’s ability to kill bacteria and prevent mould.

For a solid, flat and elegant finish that is easy to touch up when required, matte paint is ideal for creating a gentle, soothing finish. It helps to conceal flaws too, making it a good choice for older walls with "character".
Has slightly more lustre than a matte finish, low-sheen rather than shiny. This attractive finish resists stains better than matte paint, and is easier to maintain
Creates an attractive and highly durable high sheen finish, an ideal choice if you want to make a room look bigger. While it is the easiest to clean (just wipe with a damp cloth) Silk paint’s light reflecting properties do make it more difficult to touch up because any difference in sheen will be apparent. It will make imperfections in your walls more noticeable, so it is worth investing a bit of extra time on surface preparation to make your walls as smooth as possible.
Even our gloss paint is zero-VOC! An easy-to-apply, non-drip antibacterial gloss paint that provides a hardwearing, wipe-clean finish for interior and exterior wood and metal.
