Lithofin MN Stain-Stop penetrates into the surface and coats the capillaries with an extremely thin, invisible film. Oil, grease and water are not absorbed by the surface, but remain on the surface (12 to 36 hours on polished marble and limestone, up to 48 hours on granite and gneiss). During this time, oil can easily be removed without leaving stains. The effectiveness depends on the amount of product absorbed by the surface. The appearance of the natural stone is not affected. Some stones may become slightly darker in colour. The water absorbency of the stone is greatly reduced; the water permeability is only slightly affected. The product is UV-resistant and does not yellow.
Density: approx. 0,8 g/cm³ Flash Point: about 32°C
Appearance: colourless Odor: aromatic
Reduction of water absorbency: approx. 90-95%
Permeability: approx. 80 to 90%
Field of Use:
For invisible protection against staining and for facilitating maintenance of all natural stone surfaces, including polished marble. Perfect for use on wall and floor surfaces in the kitchen and bathroom, as well as on table tops, window sills and other sensitive surfaces.
Please Note: marble and limestone will remain sensitive to acid.
Directions for Use:
Without prior experience or in cases of doubt, try the product in an inconspicuous area prior to use. The surface to be treated must be completely dry and clean. Areas should be treated in sections of approx. 10 to 15m². Evenly apply a consistent amount of Lithofin MN Stain-Stop with a brush, a roller or a cloth. On highly absorbent surfaces, this procedure may have to be repeated after five minutes. Do not allow the surface residues to dry. Residues must be completely removed within 15 min. with a dry cloth. On large surfaces, remove the residues with a squeegee and polish with a white pad. Attention! the liquid product must sink into the stone. Do not allow the product to dry on the surface. Wipe excess product within 15 min. Dry residues must be removed within 24 hours.
Please Note: None absorbent surfaces can not be impregnated. Glass, ceramics, wood, and other surfaces sensitive to solvents must be protected against splashes.
The temperature of the surface should be between 10°C and 25°C. Switch off under floor heating.
After 30-40 min. surface will be dry and ready to be stepped on. Complete drying process and effectiveness of the impregnation will take approx. 5 days. During this time, do not cover the surface and remove wet spots.
Depends on the absorbency of the stone. Estimates: polished surfaces: 12 to 25m²/litre, very dense stones: up to 40m²/litre, rough/honed granite: approx. 5-7m²/litre, porous sandstone: approx. 3-6 m²/litre
Outdoor areas: up to 5 years. Indoors, the durability depends on the care products used. Strong de-greasing or layer forming products are unsuitable to use. Heavily used surfaces such as kitchen counters should be retreated once a year.
