Nippon Paint has always held health and safety for their customers among its primary goals. For the first time in India, it recently introduced the KIDZ paint, a revolutionary child wellness paint built with Anti-formaldehyde, Silver ion and anti-stain technologies. All these qualities make the KIDZ paint an apt choice for painting the interiors of schools and other educational institutions. Its revolutionary technology absorbs harmful chemicals in the air and refreshes indoor and outdoor air enabling an infection-free environment for children.
Speaking about the initiative, Mr. S Mahesh Anand, President – Decorative Paint, Nippon Paint India said, “At Nippon Paint, we have always believed in providing the safest environment to facilitate the healthy growth and development of a child. This is not just restricted to providing a safe indoor environment but also by encouraging them to take up outdoor sports activities to ensure a more holistic development. This move is our attempt to encourage the younger generation of sports enthusiasts to take up sports such as football and to draw inspiration from our loved Chennaiyin FC team.”
