BEECK Mineral Colours

Examples of Use

Overview

The State Theatre in Meiningen was built on behalf of Duke Georg II of Sachsen-Meiningen between 1908-1909 in the neoclassical style. A serious of successful productions made the Meininger theatre an important stage not only in Thuringia and secured it a special position within the theatre world that it still holds today.

The Task

In 2010 the main building was generally modernised, which also included a new colour scheme for the entire interior design: The auditorium with its circles and the flat dome, the vestibule, the foyer and the staircases were all included in the redesign. The aim was to draw up a coherent colour and surface concept, appropriate for the building's cultural history significance. The effect of the coating systems used and the interaction of the different surfaces had to produce an authentic and period style image. Good building physics properties and a high degree of robustness were also required, not only to ensure high value stability, but also to ensure economic maintenance.

The Project Stages

First, extensive restoration work was carried out to check and to secure old findings and to compile a coherent and fine colour concept. Based on this, the lead restorer then created extensive sample areas (“Musterachsen”) in which to carry out tests and sample coatings, which ultimately led to the decision regarding the paint systems to be used – not only with regard to technology but also the colour. The responsible firm of architects, the restorer and the responsible consultant of BEECK’schen Farbwerke provided advice and documented the precise implementation of the largely very sophisticated coating work.

The Paint System Used

Based on the objective, all kinds of different paint systems were chosen for the various surfaces (see products used).

The Result

The interior design of the main building appears today in renewed splendour, which appears absolutely authentic. The surfaces of the different paint systems and colours are harmoniously matched with each other and lend the historical ambience a coherent style.

The Products Used

  • BEECK PROTECT PRIMER

    BEECK PROTECT PRIMER

    Primer (lime-based old coatings, gypsum and stucco substrates) The primer reduces the absorbency and helps to stabilise substrates. It retains the good building physics properties of the substrate and is reversible in the interests of built heritage conservation.
    »
  • BEECK PROTECT FINE

    BEECK PROTECT FINE

    Primer and topcoat (lime-based old coatings, gypsum and stucco substrates) BEECK Protect is a temporary, reversible protective coat for historical substrates. Thanks to its water-vapour permeability, capillary-active effect and lack of thermoplasticity, this coating is insensitive to dirt, free from chalking and hard-wearing. It can be coated over as often as required and can be removed gently from waterproof historical substrates with water.
    »
  • BEECK INSIL

    BEECK INSIL

    Intermediate and primer coat (mineral old and new plaster areas) BEECK Insil is a solvent-free, open-pored interior silicate system, which is suitable for robust and hard-wearing surfaces, especially due to the silicifiable potassium water glass. It can be used universally, including on critical substrates and is characterised by its good hiding power and matt look.
    »
  • AGLAIA PENETRATING PRIMER

    AGLAIA PENETRATING PRIMER

    Primer (wooden structural members and design elements) The AGLAIA Penetrating Primer is a resin oil concentrate boiled with essential oils for stabilising and priming wooden substrates. Due to its very good penetration and saturation capacity it has strengthening properties when used as deep impregnation and after it has through-dried it cannot swell in water.
    »
  • AGLAIA NATURAL RESIN PAINT

    AGLAIA NATURAL RESIN PAINT

    Intermediate and topcoat (wooden structural members and design elements) The solvent-free natural resin emulsion paint has outstanding building physics properties and extremely good diffusion and sorption-capability. The paint is highly opaque and produces a cleanable and abrasionproof surface. The result is a coating with stylish, matt and fine surface characteristics.
    »
  • BEECK OIL PRIMER

    BEECK OIL PRIMER

    Primer (wooden doors and frames) The dissolved boiled concentration of resin and linseed oil made to a traditional recipe penetrates outstandingly well and pore-deep into the substrate where it is anchored by low-molecular linseed oil with "creep capability". Following oxidative through-drying a surface results that does not swell in water, which reduces absorbency, but retains the diffusion and sorption capability of the material.
    »
  • BEECK UNDERCOAT

    BEECK UNDERCOAT

    Base coat (wooden doors and frames) The dissolved boiled concentration of resin and linseed oil made to a traditional recipe penetrates outstandingly well and pore-deep into the substrate where it is anchored by low-molecular linseed oil with "creep capability". Following oxidative through-drying a surface results that does not swell in water, which reduces absorbency, but retains the diffusion and sorption capability of the material.

  • BEECK INTERIOR STAND OIL PAINT SATIN MATT

    BEECK INTERIOR STAND OIL PAINT SATIN MATT

    Intermediate and primer coat (wooden doors and frames) BEECK Interior Stand Oil Paint is an old style, abrasionproof, linseed oil-based hard resin lacquer, which cannot swell in water. The "greasy" stand oil concentration cross-links through oxidative drying to form a diffusible oil-based lacquer that cannot swell in water, and thanks to pore-deep penetration, anchors inseparably on porous wood. In combination with UV-resistant, finely ground mineral pigments, this paint system with its satin matt, fine look is particularly economical to use, high-yielding and durable.
