Originally, the Keim mineral paint system was designed by Adolf Wilhelm Keim to mimic the lime finishes found on Italian frescoes. Over 130 years ago, the scientist blended potassium silicate solution (water glass) with natural pigments to produce a coating that forms a chemical reaction with the substrate it is applied to. This special formula also penetrates the surface to integrate with it rather than simply being a top layer.

Advantages of Using Keim Paints:

Environmentally Friendly
• Keim mineral paints are natural water based liquid silicate coatings with inherent properties that protect the environment.
• Furthermore, they are manufactured using low level energy and without any petroleum products.

Safe
• Keim paint systems are not toxic and they do not smell, so will not affect people while they are being applied.
• In fact, they are free from VOCs (Volatile Organic Compounds), so they don’t emit any toxic fumes.
• They are fire resistant.
• Consequently, they are ideal for commercial premises where safety is paramount such as public transport buildings, hospitals, schools and offices.

Hard-Wearing
• Keim products penetrate the surface and permanently bond with the substrate.
• This silicification will not simply wear off like other paints, but will guard against pollution and extreme weather conditions provi
