ABOUT KEIM MINERAL PAINTS
Keim Mineral Paints originated in Bavaria in 1878 and are now used extensively around the world. The system was developed by A.W. Keim to reproduce the appearance of lime fresco finishes which were able to withstand harsh weather conditions.
– Keim Lignosil®
Keim Royalan. – a mineral silicate based paint system developed to withstand harsh climatic conditions, ideally suited for use in exposed locations and those subject to continual pollutants and contaminants.The crystalline nature of Keim Royalan allows vapour to pass freely through the coating from the substrate whilst at the same time protecting against the ingress of moisture, giving up to 96% breathability after coating, eliminating blistering, cracking or peeling associated with conventional paints.
Keim Royalan is manufactured from waterglass (potassium silicate) and natural earth oxides, and is inherently compatible with mineral substrates, with its advanced formulation also making it ideal for coating ceramic and hard substrates such as tiles and brickwork. The potassium silicate mineral binder reacts chemically with the substrate creating a strong, permanent bond between the paint and the underlying substrate. Keim Royalan has a thermal expansion coefficient comparable with mineral substrates resulting in a reduced tendency to form cracks.
The microcrystalline structure of Keim Royalan provides a high light reflectance surface, appearing bright and vibrant, even on dull days. Keim Royalan is manufactured using natural earth oxide pigments which are UV stable and do not fade with time. Light and thermal rays are reflected from the crystalline structure, in hot regions this reflection reduces the thermal stress on the building structure, reducing the tendency for the substrate to crack and lowering the temperature inside the building.
Keim Royalan is non combustible. Keim Royalan is unaffected by acids and pollution, rolex replica watches protecting the substrate from contaminants such as acid rain. As the surface does not retain electrostatic charge it does not attract dirt from the atmosphere The inorganic alkaline composition of Keim Royalan reduces fungal and algae growth.
