The patent-pending iPaint by Nirlat is an innovative product which revolutionizes the way consumers paint their homes. iPaint makes it a clean, seamless and effortless experience, eliminating the traditional paint bucket and tray. The innovation stems from the fact that the iPaint pouch has 2 compartments: air and paint. iPaint is a closed wall painting system that will replace the traditional roller and tray. Compared to the paint bucket, iPaint is more eco-friendly due to less remaining packaging volume after use. While the plastic bucket is volumetric, the bag at the end of use can be folded and discarded.
