Cable Street Mural, London

Keim mineral paints were used to restore the historic Cable Street mural in London, which was brought back to its original condition by Paul Butler, one of the original four artists who used Keim mineral paints on the mural back in 1982.

Battle of Cable Street

Keim Mineral Paints proudly sponsored the Battle of Cable Street, London, commemorative exhibition on its 75th anniversary. This was a momentous occasion, an iconic moment and a major factor leading to the passing of the Public Order Act 1936. This was a time when community groups came into their own by standing up for their own rights.

Keim Soldalit and Keim Royalan were used to create the full range of colours for the restoration of the mural, with colours mixed on site by the artist himself. As mineral paints contain exclusively high-quality, lightfast, mineral pigments and binders which exhibit the greatest UV resistance of all paint systems, they are absolutely weather-resistant and all Keim colours are unaffected by the action of weathering and UV radiation, ensuring no colour fade with the passage of time. Having a bright matt appearance, the crystal structure of Keim mineral paints gives a high level of light reflectance compared to oil based film forming paints of a similar colour. Once completed, the mural was coated with Keim Wax coating, for anti graffiti protection
