Sadolin steps up market presence in Uganda
September 28, 2018—Major paints brand, Sadolin, has launched a new variety in Uganda, Sadolin Wallguard, which it touts as superior to other offerings because it provides the assurance that paint work will resist mould attack for longer periods.
Nathalie Sweeney, Marketing Director for AkzoNobel sub-Sahara Africa said, “We are thrilled to launch Sadolin Wallguard, leading a comprehensive range of protective paints for walls, roofs and exterior surface preparation to address the damaging effects of humidity.”
The manufacturer, who have been in the business since 1907, says unlike other paint brands, their new product offers the smooth finish and colour expected from high quality paint, but also features the unique MouldexMoisture Resist technology.
Sweeney told invited guests at the launch in Kampala this week, “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.”
The new range of exterior products also include Sadolin Roofguard, a pure acrylic paint for roof tops; Sadolin Rainshield, a flexible, fibre-reinforced water and crack resistant surface preparation waterproofing product for areas prone to water leaks and Dampshield, a low-odour, quick drying water based preparation that stops the destructive effect of rising and penetrating damp.
Deon Nieuwoudt, the Commercial Director East Africa at AkzoNobel said 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,” Nieuwoudt said.
