Keim - Royalan Exterior Silicate Paint
The Keim Royalan mineral silicate based paint system has been developed to withstand unusually harsh conditions. Ideal for exposed locations and areas where pollutants and contaminants are an issue.
Keim Royalan's crystaline makeup allows vapour to pass freely from the substrate through the coating, whilst protecting against the ingress of moisture. Breathability can be up to 96%, which eliminates the cracking and blistering common with conventional paints. It's thermal expansion coefficient is similar to mineral substrates which reduces the possibility of cracking.
Keim Royalan is made from Potassium Silicate and natural earth oxides, which makes it highly compatible with mineral substrates. The potassium silicate binder reacts with the substrate creating a strong bond even on ceramic surfaces, tiles and brickwork.
The microcrystalline structure of Royalan provides a high light reflectance surface, appearing bright and vibrant, even on dull days. It is also UV stable and does not fade over time. Unaffected by acids and pollution Keim Royalan protects the substrate from contaminants such as acid rain. It doesn't attract dirt from the atmosphere because it does not retain and electrostatic charge. Algae and fungal growth are also kept at bay by the paints alkaline composition.

All loose, flaking and unstable material must be identified and then thoroughly removed, all surfaces must be washed down with clean cold water to remove all surface dirt and dust. When all surfaces are clean, sound, wind dry, dust free and free from all surface contaminants, decoration using Keim Mineral Paints may proceed.
Onto unpainted surfaces Keim Royalan should be applied as a two coat system, the first coat to be diluted with 20% by weight Keim Royalan Dilution and applied by brush or roller, working well into all surfaces. Allopw a minimum of 12 hours between coats. For previously painted surfaces Keim Royalan
Grob should be used as a first coat.
Coverage: Approx. 0.4kg/m2 Keim Royalan and 0.04lt/m2 Keim Royalan.
