Microbiological tests were carried out against fungal spores (Cladosporium cladosporioides, Alternaria alternate, Rhodotorula mucilaginosa, Aspergillus Niger and Geotrichium candidum). Nanosilver suspension at a concentration of 5-15 ppm was used as a biocidal agent. It was a component of various kinds of tested paint coatings. Studies Geotrichium candidum confirmed the high biocidal efficacy thus nanosilver additive for paints and coatings makes it possible to prevent the growth of microorganisms.
