Technical journals for painting

Adolf Wilhelm Keim (1851-1913) is well-known not only for the mineral colours named after him, which are still produced by KEIM today.

In 1884 he founded the "Technische Mitteilungen für Malerei" to inform about commercial paints and paints and to clarify grievances in the paint industry.

Today, the "Technische Mitteilungen für Malerei" are among the main sources of art technology and restoration history. They are available for research online.


KEIM. Consistently mineral!

The basis of every mineral colour of KEIM is the so-called "mineral principle".

Our secret recipe is the unique composition of binder, pigment, filler and additive. Water glass - a natural binder - ensures ingenious adhesion of the paint on the substrate.

This principle makes KEIM silicate paints extremely durable, ecological and economical. A high colour brilliance is guaranteed - even over decades!
