HISTORY: 

The ancient Egyptians, Greeks and Romans, followed suit, adding colourful murals and fresco´s and by the middle ages white washed buildings were common through out Europe. As well as protecting buildings from weather, lime paint had natural insecticidal and anti-bacterial properties that made it popular for use. Today, lime paint is once again sought after for it's durability and soft antique beauty.

TRANSFORM THE OUTSIDE OF YOUR BRICK HOME WITH KALEI.

Kalei consists among others of mineral raw materials (maximum grain size 0.75 mm), and has cement free binding agents like chalk and hydraulic and moisture-regulating character. 

The Kalei is weather-resistant once applied properly, and allows the structure of the masonry to be visible. In humid weather, Kalei shows the renowned "stain forming" which it is famous for. 

The Brushing Technique:

The brushing technique helps determine the look and the substrate determines the colour nuance in the badgeon coat. 

The thickness of the application, 1-3 mm is determined by:

  • the amount of mixing water that is used

  • the brush used

  • the number of coats applied

 

The first layer is used to colour in all the joints. The second layer is applied diluted* to finish quickly and without the formation of blocks on the painted surface. 

*Dilution makes the colour a little lighter.
