Today, the sustainability of building products is more important than ever. KEIM products are made from natural raw materials. Mineral paints by KEIM have an outstanding ecological profile from raw material extraction via production, application and the entire life-cycle through to disposal. Short delivery chains further improve the carbon footprint while enhancing the sustainability of our products. Our sustainability data sheets provide all information in one place.
Mineral products by KEIM are free of emissions and offer optimum building physics attributes. They create ideal prerequisites for a healthy room climate and genuine quality of life. We always have been the pioneers among paint manufacturers when it comes to healthy living.
Not even the flame of a welding torch can ignite KEIM silicate paints. This ensures maximum safety in the event of a fire, with no release of toxic gases. Silicate paints are therefore particularly suitable for public buildings.
In the long term, facades painted with KEIM products also remain clean for longer. Compared to conventional paints with organic binders, the advantage of silicate paints is that they are antistatic and non-thermoplastic. This makes it hard for dirt particles to adhere to the surface.
Silicate paints by KEIM are highly vapour permeable. Moisture contained in the building structure can be emitted unhindered and quickly to the outside by our paints. Annoying moisture build up and long-term consequences such as frost damage and spalling on the facade are therefore avoided. Their vapour permeability and alkaline composition also ensure that they naturally inhibit the growth of mould and algae.
With the Cradle to Cradle Certified® certificates in silver for 65 products in the product groups exterior paints, interior paints, wood and concrete systems, KEIM takes the lead in construction industry. This accounts for more than 80 % of KEIM’s paint sales. All products have also been awarded the C2C Certified Material Health Certificate at the Gold level. Gold certification from the independent Cradle to Cradle Products Innovation Institute in San Francisco is only awarded to products that do not contain any substances from the list of banned chemical substances and that pose no risk to health or the environment.
Architects, processors and contractors can thus choose from a comprehensive range of Cradle to Cradle certified paint systems to design buildings in new construction and renovation with demonstrably circular, healthy and durable coatings. Once again, we are demonstrating our pioneering role in sustainability.
