KEIM silicate paints and coatings are made of waterglass and inorganic natural mineral pigments, combined using KEIM technology offer unsurpassed beauty and protection that lasts for decades. KEIM naturally compliments the mineral physics of mineral surfaces such as concrete, masonry, stone, CMU block, brick, stucco, renders, MgO boards, fiber-cement boards, drywall boards and all types of mineral substrates—even previously painted mineral substrates. Unlike traditional paints or stains, KEIM penetrates into the substrate and by chemical reaction creates a covalent bond, forming a microporous breathable coating that is highly vapor permeable yet very water resistant. KEIM protects against pollution, acid rain, carbonation, mold and algae without flaking, peeling or cracking. KEIM is resistant to UV light as our mineral colors will do not fade and are incombustible producing no smoke or fumes. As a natural mineral coating, KEIM silicate paints contain very low to no VOC’s. KEIM mineral paints and coatings are environmentally friendly, 100% sustainable green products using only premium ingredients from nature.Although KEIM invented the first potassium silicate coating in 1878, the past 130 years have been full of development and innovation. KEIM continues to lead the industry in silicate mineral technologies with unique renovation renders, plasters, and mortars. Today KEIM has complete product systems from preparation to finish and protection for:Interiors• Interior liquid mineral paints and coatings in KEIM Optil and active photocatalytic self-cleaning interior paints for healthy living in KEIM Ecosil ME.• Mineral lasurs, stains and glazes.• Pure mineral lime cement renders for plastered interiors.Exteriors• Exterior liquid mineral paints and coatings for any extreme or temperate climate in KEIM Granital, KEIM Royalan, KEIM Soldalit, and KEIM Concretal.• Concrete repair, restoration, and protection in KEIM Concretal.• Pure mineral lime cement stuccos and renders for repair, renovation or new construction.• Stone and masonry repair, restoration and protection system in KEIM Restauro.• Façade restoration render systems for accommodating salts and rising damp problems. • Mineral lasurs, stains and glazes. • Highly vapor permeable waterproofing and water repellency products.• Anti-graffiti and anti-soiling surface protection.KEIM’s history and experience figure prominently in historic restoration projects offering a systematic approach to solving building challenges.
