Sadolin Uganda head of Sales, Mr Ashish Devani and Mr. David Okayan, Sales Manager for North and Eastern regions interact with paint dealers

Local paint maker Sadolin Paints has launched the new paid dubbed Sadolin Wallguard in Gulu where company executives had an engagement with dealers at Bomah Hotel.

The new paint on the market was entirely researched and developed in Uganda and unlike other paint brands it offers the smooth finish and colour expected from high quality paint but also features unique mould and moisture resistant technology, company managers say.

The Gul unveiling of Sadolin Wallguard comes a few days after the brand was officially launched in Kampala at the Kampala Serena Hotel, with many dealers in the hardware business, media, artists, painters and real estate attending.

Developed by an international task team to meet the harsh local climatic requirements, Sadolin Wallguard’s Mouldex Moisture Resist has a dual purpose. The paint now available in hardware stores countrywide allows harmful trapped moisture to escape while creating an impermeable barrier that stops outside moisture from getting in. “This breakthrough technology makes Sadolin Wallguard’s performance superior to other paints and provides the assurance that the paint work will resist mould attack for longer.

Commenting on the new product in Kampala, Nathalie Sweeney, Marketing Director AkzoNobel Sub-Sahara Africa, the owners of Sadolin said the company was thrilled to launch the new paint on the market. “We are thrilled to launch Sadolin Wallguard, leading to a comprehensive range of protective paint for walls, roofs and exterior surface preparation to address the damaging effects of humidity,” she said.

Sweeney added: “Humidity and mould can really make a house look old before it’s time but now with the new Sadolin Wallguard with Mouldex Moisture Resist, walls will look cleaner and mould-free for longer.”

Deon Nieuwoudt, the Commercial Director East Africa at AkzoNobel said that as Grand Masters of Protection since 1907, Sadolin does not only provide exceptional colour and finish to customers but also meets the modern exterior protection needs required from premium paint products.

“The new Sadolin Wallguard with Mouldex moisture resist specially made for Uganda offers ultimate protection and it gives longer lasting protection in extreme humidity,” said Mr. Nieuwoudt.

The new range of exterior paint products also boasts Sadolin Roofguard, a pure acrylic paint that offers roof tops excellent protection and durability; Sadolin Rainshield, a flexible, fibre-reinforced water and crack reistant surface preparation waterproofing product for areas prone to water leaks and Dampshield, a low-odour, quick drying water based preparation product that stops the destructive effect of rising and penetrating damp.

These four new specialist exterior products together with well-known Sadolin Weatherguard take exterior protection in harsh and humid climates to a whole new level.
