KEIM Philosophy

With his invention of silicate coating systems in 1878, Adolf Wilhelm KEIM founded our company which today is known worldwide as the leading specialist in mineral architectural protection systems providing sustainable solutions. We are specialists among generalists: in our specific field of “mineral silicate architectural protection systems’, we supply highly developed comprehensive solutions for exterior and interior surfaces.

Sustainability is the guiding principle underlying all our business activities and is the reason why we are convinced of the superiority of mineral building products. Our aim is to maintain and protect existing value with our activities and to create new value without limiting the options of future generations.
