Product Description

Keim Granital is an environmentally friendly mineral paint, which is extremely durable, vapour permeable and lightfast.

It is suitable for use on all kinds of unpainted mineral substrates.  With the addition of a bridging coat it can also be used to re-coat existing paints which are in sound condition.

The crystalline structure of Granital allows vapour to pass through the coating from the substrate, whilst protecting against moisture ingress. This helps to eliminate blistering and flaking, a problem regularly encountered with conventional paints.

General Preparation considerations for all surfaces

The key to optimum performance with Keim products is preparation prior to decoration.

  • Remove flaking and unstable material back to a sound edge.
  • Check that any remaining coatings are stable and feather the edges with sand paper.
  • Flat down any shiny surfaces with sandpaper to create a good key
  • Remove any Mould and Fungal growth and treat the affected area with Keim Algicid.
  • Repair cracks with Keim Spachtel filler.
  • Ensure air and surface temperatures are between 5-30ºC.

Clean all surfaces with clean cold water to remove dirt, dust and contaminants. leave surfaces dry naturally
Please note: Consumption rates are offered for guideline purposes only. For more accurate measures, site trials should be conducted.


Unpainted Lime Render

Follow the general preparation guidelines.

Specific considerations for lime plaster.
Any newly lime rendered/repaired areas must be allowed to dry out for a minimum period of 28 days and to have carbonated to a minimum depth of 2.5mm prior to application of Keim Mineral Paints. Please note that this is a minimum requirement, and in extreme cases (for example pure lime putty renders) the time required may be significantly longer.

Application
Apply a coat of Keim Granital Dilution with a brush or roller and work well into the surface. This will help to reduce porosity. Leave a minimum period of 12 hours before further decoration

Apply 2 coats of Keim Granital with a brush or roller. The first coat should be diluted with approximately 20% by weight of Keim Granital Dilution. Leave at least 12 hours before applying a second, undiluted coat of Keim Granital.

Typical consumption rates for a smooth lime plaster surface.

First Coat
Keim Granital Dilution 0.15 lt per square metre

Keim Granital 0.2 kg per square metre

Keim Granital Dilution 0.04 lt per square metre
