RECOMMENDED BY ARCHITECTS
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.
NEVER SACRIFICE STYLE OR BEAUTY
