1912 East 180th Street Station sparkles with a new mineral paint finish
The East 180th Street Station in the Bronx, New York recently underwent an exterior restoration. Previously the stucco was covered with peeling acrylic paint that was unsuitable for the 1912 Italian Villa style stucco façade. The paint was stripped and stucco repairs were made, followed by two coats of Soldalit Sol Silicate Exterior Paint. The new paint provided a durable and fade resistant finish. The mineral matte nature of Soldalit ensures the most natural appearance to stucco and Keim's 20 Year Color Guarantee gives the owner piece of mind. In addition, this vapor permeable finish will allow the stucco to breathe and the paint will never blister or peel from moisture.

Our local Keim sales and service personnel are ready to assist you with all your project needs. Keim has been helping to preserve and protect historic treasures since 1878 worldwide.

Church of Scientology - ASHO + LA-ORG Building
Challenges:
The decorative panels and fluted columns are painted with an acrylic polymer paint that shows variegation in the color from fading and weathering. Holes will remain after removing row of bronze lights. Surfaces behind the gold signage letters are rough. Textural shadows remain on the surface where earlier lettering was installed at the first story level. There are many visible cracks in the surface of what may be a thin Portland plaster over the precast concrete building shell. Water run-off from the scuppers is not directed far enough away from the facade resulting in noticeable accelerated weathering below. It is desired to coat the exposed electrical conduits at the north and south end facades.

Solutions:
Smooth out rough-textured surfaces and fill divots with Keim Universalputz Standard Render, treat new render surfaces with Keim Lime Remover, and apply a primer coat of Keim Royalan Grob diluted 10% with Royalan Silicate Dilution, followed with a top coat of Keim Royalan. The course-grained primer coat will fill hairline cracks and blend repairs and existing textures together for a natural and balanced appearance.
