KEIM Lignosil-Verano simulates a greyed, patinated surface like it occurs on natural wood after years of weathering.
Greyed wood facades have a special charm. However, under certain circumstances it can take decades for a uniform silver-grey patina to develop, like those seen on mountain huts in the Alps. Untreated wood facades change their colour and surface structure depending on environmental influences. Determining when the effect may be achieved is difficult, as many factors have an influence on various building surfaces.
With KEIM Lignosil-Verano, a silicate-based surface treatment has been developed that simulates a naturally beautiful, silver-grey patinised wood appearance from the very first day. As a result of consciously leaving out the protective function which is usually desirable in coatings, the applied Lignosil-Verano coat increasingly changes to natural grey over the course of time.
