After 20 years of research, the developers at KEIM succeeded in transferring the ‘silicate paint model’ to the substrate of wood. The result is KEIM Lignosil® - the world‘s first mineral composite coating to protect wooden surfaces from weathering.
The First Mineral Paint for Wooden Surfaces
The decisive advantages of the silicate system structure are enhanced by the very small material and work effort while renovating. In technical and economic aspects, KEIM Lignosil® is unbeatable.
Thanks to the aging behavior of KEIM Lignosil® which is a typical characteristic for silicate paints, a highly durable coating structure provides the advantage that surfaces usually do not need to be sanded off prior to a refinish. A thoroughly performed cleaning of the surfaces is all the preparation work it takes.
