MINERAL SILICATE PAINTS + GLAZES PENETRATE AND FORM PERMANENT BONDS Mineral-Art™ paints, stains and glazes provide ultimately long life to ensure your artist legacy. Lifespans of more than 100 years are documented in frescos and murals across Europe, where Adolph Wilhelm Keim invented mineral silicate paints in 1878. Today, the quality and commitment to craftsmanship is stronger than ever. Keim mineral silicate paints are meticulously handcrafted to deliver the highest performance. Every batch of paint is custom made with only natural ingredients. By penetrating porous masonry surfaces, these paints form permanent chemical bonds within the masonry so they can never peel or lose adhesion. And because they are extremely vapor permeable, mineral silicate paints will never trap moisture in the wall and will never blister from buildup of water behind the paint finish. This ensures your art will last for decades.

HOW DO MINERAL SILICATE PAINTS BOND TO MASONRY?

 Penetrates masonry and forms permanent, chemical bonds  Paints literally become part of the masonry surface  Paints and stains are very vapor permeable and allow masonry to “breathe” naturally  Moisture vapor is never trapped in walls so paint will never bubble

ONLY ARTIST-GRADE INORGANIC MINERAL PIGMENTS DELIVER COLORS THAT LAST A LIFETIME Mineral-Art™ paints, stains and glazes use only the highest quality mineral pigments that have a proven track record for centuries. Earthen, natural pigments and fillers are naturally resistant to fade and completely U.V. stable. Colors that only Nature can produce. And mineral colors are more brilliant and provide the truest colors. The crystal clear mineral silicate matrix holds pigment particles on the masonry surface where light reaches the pigment itself. Pigments are not held in a “milky” acrylic paint film that mutes colors. Instead, the truest color expressions are possible from pigments such as Cobalt Blue and Nickle Titanium Yellow to black and white and every shade in between. Colors that radiate light in all directions to give your artistic expression a “lively” appearance. And the mineral matte surface reacts to changes in light, giving your artwork a “life” of its own.

HOW DO MINERAL COLORS LAST FOR DECADES WITHOUT FADING?

 Pure mineral pigments and fillers are 100% U.V. stable and will not lose brilliance  Harsh climates are no match for mineral silicate colors  Mineral silicate binder and pigments are both U.V. stable for ultimate weather resistance  No synthetic pigments, prone to fading, are ever used  Colors are guaranteed not to fade—for 20 years
