Mineral Masonry Paint is a low-maintenance, pure potassium silicate paint that delivers extreme durability, color stability and a beautiful mineral matte flat finish. Mineral Masonry Paint penetrates deep within and onto the masonry surface for permanent adhesion, literally becoming part of it. The mineral microporous surface breathes and lets moisture from the masonry surface freely escape so it will never blister or peel. It never traps moisture in your walls. The high pH (alkaline) surface is naturally mold and mildew resistant, toxin-free, and environmentally friendly. Keim, the inventor of mineral silicate paints more than 140 years ago, first formulated Mineral Masonry Paint in the 1960’s. Today it delivers decades of successful track record and you can count on mineral colors that will not fade for decades on end.
New or bare brick, stone, stucco and fiber cement surfaces must be porous. Surfaces treated with water repellents may not be paintable, especially if recently applied. Surfaces must be absorbent. Test by wetting surface with water to ensure the water is absorbed into the surface. Mineral Masonry Paint should be applied in two separate coats for maximum durability. Coverage will vary depending on the porosity and texture as well as application methods, equipment used and workmanship. Here are estimates based on typical brick walls.

You will need an extra bucket, painter’s tape, drop cloths, paint brush, stir stick, paint tray and liner, ladder if necessary, dampened cloth to clean up spatters, latex gloves and eye protection. Paint may be applied by brush, roller or spray equipment. See technical data for specifics of application equipment recommendations. Clean up splatters and spills immediately as dried paint is almost impossible to remove from masonry, concrete, glass and metal surfaces. Previously painted surfaces should be clean and free of loose or peeling paint, dirt, grease, mold and mildew and the surface should by dry. See technical information for details. Stir Mineral Masonry Paint until smooth and homogenous. Use a paint brush to cut in around edges and corners then use a paint roller to apply paint to remaining area. It is best to roll into damp cut in paint to avoid creating a “ridge” between dry and wet paint. Apply paint in an even coat with no runs, sags or holidays. Avoid drips, spills and painting adjacent areas. Clean up spills immediately with a damp cloth as it will be difficult to remove once dried. Clean tools with soap and warm water. Airless spray equipment may also be used for application. Consult Technical Data for complete details. Dry to touch: 2—4 hours at 70°F and 50% R.H. Recoat: 8–12 hours
