KEIM Paint  keim_highres_logo

Keim mineral silicate paint systems were invented over 130 years ago to provide long term protective and decorative finishes for renders, subject to harsh climatic conditions. Mineral silicate finishes last for decades; are safe, sustainable, breathable, weather resistant and UV stable.

“Keim” mineral paints are mineral based paints which bond to surfaces in a different way to regular exterior paints. They create a microcrystalline bond with the new plaster or substrate, allowing the coating to become an integral part of that substrate. Other exterior paints form a film on top of the existing plasterwork.
