KEIM Soldalit Arte is a sol-silicate based, titanium dioxide-free exterior paint, formulated to provide historical aesthetic to period buildings.
Because of the omission of the homogenising white pigment titanium dioxide, KEIM Soldalit-arte is particularly suitable for the renovation of old structures and listed buildings to reproduce an historical aesthetic.
KEIM Soldalit-Arte is as well recommended for new buildings and modern architecture for exterior wall coatings with special requirements regarding colour depth and colour effect. Not suitable for horizontal and inclined surfaces exposed to weathering.
KEIM Soldalit-Arte is suitable for coating sound organic, mineral or mixed substrates. This coating is not suitable for wood, plastoelastic coatings, saponifiable existing paints (for example certain oil-based paints) and non-wettable substrates (for example lacquers).
- Titanium dioxide-free formulation
- Increased colour depth and brightness
- Emphasises the texture and other features of the substrate
- Mineral matt finish
- Absolutely inorganic, lightfast pigments
- UV and highly weather resistant
- Resistant to industrial fumes and acid rain
- Highly water-repellent (despite darkening in colour in rain)
- Extremely vapour permeable
- Hinders fungal and algal growth thanks to ideal moisture balance
- Environmentally friendly
- No solvents added
The substrate must be sound, dry, non-chalking, clean and dust-free. Remove any loose areas of existing coatings mechanically or by water jetting. Fill and texture-match any defects with a suitable touch-up material. Sinter layers of new renders have to be removed with KEIM Ätzflüssigkeit (lime remover) as prescribed. Areas of new renders (repairs) should in general be pretreated with KEIM Ätzflüssigkeit (lime remover) according to the technical data sheet.
Highly absorbent mineral substrates should be pretreated with KEIM Soldalit-Fixativ. For touched-up substrates and substrates with textural variations or hairline cracks, use KEIM Soldalit-Arte-Grob as priming coat instead of KEIM Soldalit-Arte.
Application by brush is particularly recommended.
Base coat - Apply KEIM Soldalit-Arte undiluted. For highly absorbant substrates, dilute from approx. 5% to max. 10%, with KEIM Soldalit-Fixativ.
Top coat - Apply KEIM Soldalit-Arte undiluted.

The manufacturers data sheets are available for download from this website. It is your responsibility to read and understand all aspects of the data sheets before you place an order and prior to application. Please pay special attention to the preparation, mixing and application temperatures of the product, cleaning of substrate and environmental factors such as temperature, rain etc. Quoted coverage rates are based on the manufacturers theoretical rates and may vary depending upon substrates absorption, texture and application. We always recommend a test is carried out to ensure suitability.
