Paint that will withstand being cleaned or scrubbed after its has been graised or marked. To define if a paint is scrubbable or not it will usually have a scrub rating.
The scrub rating is tested under the Class 1 ISO 11998 Test which evaluates the resistance of the paint to repeated cleaning. It is measured by the amount of paint that has been lost from the surface.
If a paint is classed as 'scrubbable', it should be able to be cleaned easily with warm, soapy water and not visually damage the finish of the paint.
The added durability is ideal for high traffic areas such as hallways and children's bedrooms or nursery's. Scrubbable Matt paint is generally best used on walls and ceilings but some are suitable for woodwork.
