Certified Enamel Wall Paints For A Healthier Environment

The COVID-19 pandemic has led to an increase in the demand for a hygienic environment at home and the workplace. Mapei has developed certain products specifically to ensure that environments such as kitchens and hospitals are kept clean and hygienic. This will ensure that the spread of germs is greatly reduced. Areas that are used for the preparation of food and beverages (restaurants, cafes, schools, kitchens, breweries, food production plants, etc.) and health sector facilities (hospitals, surgeries, pharmaceutical environments, sports complexes, etc.), are subject to specific standards for paint systems to be applied. Mapecoat ACT enamel wall paints meet all legal requirements and are available in more than 1,000 shades from the Mapei Master Collection.

Mapecoat ACT 021 is a semi-gloss, hard-wearing hygienic enamel paint, specifically developed for the food and beverage industry as specified by UNI 11021 standards. Mapecoat ACT 021 is formulated with a high polymer content. This enables the product to provide long-lasting protection and resistance to cleaning cycles. 


Mapecoat ACT 021 complies with the requirements of the HACCP protocol for painted walls and ceilings in areas where food is present, such as the food industry and public and private environments serving food and drinks (bars, restaurants, supermarkets, schools and company canteens, etc.). Mapecoat ACT 021 is resistant to changes in temperature and is suitable for use in refrigeration units.

Mapecoat ACT 196 is an acrylic based semi-gloss, hard-wearing hygienic enamel paint, ideal for use in interior health sector environments. It is resistant to bacteria and complies with ISO 22196 standards. Mapecoat ACT 196 can be painted on new, old and already painted internal surfaces that require a high level of hygiene and cleanliness.


It is the ultimate enamel paint for protecting and decorating surfaces in the health sector, schools and recreational facilities that require a high level of hygiene. The paint complies with all standards for use in hospitals, clinics, medical centres, schools, nurseries, and leisure centres.
