THE HEALTHIEST PAINT—CERTIFIED PURE
Mineral paints are safe to use and protect your indoor air too. Zero VOC means they’re free of toxic, carbon-based solvents that pollute the air and pose health risks. Tested and certified, our paints meet the most rigorous emissions standards. Simply the safest and healthiest paint you can use.
BETTER PAINT FROM NATURE
For more than 140 years we’ve helped homeowners create healthier living environments with our toxic-free, eco-friendly mineral silicate paints. We’re proud to let you know what’s in every can so you can have peace of mind when bringing KEIM into your home. And our manufacturing process is less harmful to the environment too. Paints that are safe and healthy from manufacturing, to installation and in your home.
PAINT BORN IN NATURE
Plentiful and sustainable earthen raw materials are the sole ingredients in our paints. Mineral binders, the glue that holds paint “together” are not synthesized in a chemical plant. Latex and acrylic binders are produced from crude oil and are highly refined. Potassium Carbonate and water are the chief ingredients in mineral silicate binders. And only inert mineral fillers like quartz granules are added along with naturally occurring mineral oxide pigments for a toxic-free composition.
MINERALS ARE ODORLESS
Mineral silicate paints are odorless, in their containers, and on your walls. No odors or harmful gasses are emitted before, during or after you apply the paint. Don’t you deserve a paint that doesn’t give you headaches and potentially worse respiratory symptoms? Trust Keim to deliver paints with absolutely no noxious smell.
MINERAL PAINT IS TRULY VOC FREE
VOC’s are solvents that get released into the air as the paint dries and can cause acute symptoms, including headaches and dizziness. The long-term effects are less certain, but according to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, some VOC’s are suspected carcinogens.
