Introducing Keim Mineral Paints
Texas Paint will now be offering Keim mineral paints. The Keim Mineral Paints were invented by Bavarian scientist, Adolf Wilhelm Keim. Keim successfully combined water glass (potassium silicate solution) with inorganic color pigments. The paint he created both penetrates and chemically reacts with the mineral substrate, becoming an integral part of the surface where it can never peel or blister. In addition, the paint is weather resistance with an amazing durability and nonfading colors. You can see the durability of the paint on the buildings painted with Keim Paints in the 19th century that are still in excellent condition today. Some examples include the White Eagle Inn at Stein am Rhein and the City Hall, Schwyx, both are in Switzerland and were decorated in 1891. There are other long lasting facades in Oslo (1895) and Traunstein, Germany (1891) which are still in excellent condition today. The mineral composition of Keim silicate paints has huge environmental advantages. Using water glass as the binder makes it possible to do completely without solvents, plasticisers and preservatives.
