Introducing Keim Mineral Paints
Helm Paint will now be offering Keim mineral paints. Bavarian scientist, Adolf Wilhelm Keim, invented the mineral paints. Keim was able to combine 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 has an unsurpassed weather resistance durability and nonfading colors. As a result, buildings painted with Keim Paints in the 19th century 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.
