Keim mineral paints have no solvents, preservatives or synthetics and deliver the optimal paint for healthy living. Our premium sol-silicate paints comply with the strictest environmental standards both here and in Europe, where these paints were invented more than 140 years ago. And, the vapor permeability and rapid drying properties of mineral paints resist mold growth naturally to ensure your healthy environment for years to come.

Architects and owners prefer buildings with long lasting value and beauty. But, in addition to timeless appearance, structures must balance building physics as well to preserve your investment. Here, breathable walls, both inside and outdoors, deliver on the promise of ideal physics. Building materials stay drier, naturally, adding to their longevity and ensuring the prevention of mold growth.

Mold growth requires two key components, organic nutrients and moisture. Ordinary latex and acrylic paints use organic binders and combined with moisture provide ideal conditions for mold growth. In order to combat mold growth biocides and fungicides are added. Mineral paints are highly alkaline (like stone or concrete) and do not provide nutrients for mold growth. And due to their diffusive surface, moisture does not condense further reducing the chance of mold growth. Finally, the high pH of Keim mineral paints acts as a further mold inhibitor. So you can see, mineral paints inhibit mold growth without the addition of toxic biocides or fungicides.

And KEIM paints are stunningly beautiful in appearance as well as composition. You’ll not have to compromise on style to get the healthiest paints. The natural mineral matte appearance and feel deliver an unparalleled tactile, even luxurious experience. Colors are vivid and true to their mineral pigments and cover the broad range of colors found in natural minerals from around the globe.



The mineral nature of KEIM paints ensures that no harmful chemicals are present, either in the paint or once it is on your walls. Based on the binding agent water glass, no VOC’s of any kind are present, ever. During application, the paint forms an incredible bond with your walls through an alkaline reaction. While curing the paint absorbs carbon dioxide—that’s it! Once dried there are no lingering odors and nothing to evaporate into your indoor air.

People suffering from allergy sensitivities to latex and organic compounds can rest easy with Keim’s purely mineral composition. Paints that are verifiably well-suited because they are free of organic solvents, plasticisers and pot preservatives. Numerous independent testing institutes have confirmed this and Keim interior mineral paints have been awarded the quality seal “natureplus” for many years. This seal imposes the most stringent requirements for airborne pollutants and irritants.

Keim paints are not combustible and are rated as Class A building materials. Third party testing confirms that in case of fire, Keim paints do not contribute fuel to the fire, nor do they contribute noxious or dangerous smoke. In case of fire, mineral paints are inert like stone or concrete, and simply don’t burn.


Keim paints are not manufactured in a large chemical plant, but are hand crafted with as little impact on the environment as possible. Manufacturing processes are simple and require little energy, while mineral raw materials are among the most abundant on earth. Using plentiful raw materials, that require less processing makes Keim paints among the most eco-friendly paints available today. We are redefining the paint plant in modern times using practices and materials that we’ve used for the past 130 years. And longer lasting paints means less repainting as your building ages—you can’t get much more sustainable than that.
