A ready-to-use special product from the LITHOFIN-Range for ceramic, natural- and engineered stone. Lithofin Stainstop PLUS contains high-quality water and oil repellent agents based on siloxanes and dissolved in solvents. Special additives permanently intensify the colour structure.
Lithofin Stainstop PLUS sinks into the stone and reduces the capillary absorbency so water, oil and grease can no longer penetrate the surface. These materials remain on the surface and can be wiped off before they cause stains. In addition to protecting the stone, Lithofin Stainstop PLUS darkens it thereby invigorating the colour structure.
Density: approx. 0,82 g/cm³
Flash Point: >23°C
Appearance: colourless Odor: aromatic
Field of Use:
For making absorbent ceramic, terracotta, natural- and engineered stone surfaces stain resistant while at the same time intensifying their colour structure. Highly suitable for weak to medium absorbent natural stones like granite, gneiss, quartzite, slate and limestone with rough to honed surfaces. Conditionally suitable for polished stones.
Please Note: impregnated surfaces can not be treated. Marble and limestone remain sensitive to acid.
Directions for Use:
Always test the product in an inconspicuous area prior to application. The surface to be treated must be completely dry, clean and free of stains. Apply Lithofin Stainstop PLUS with a brush, a roller or a cloth. The surface should be uniformly wet. On very absorbent surfaces, this procedure may have to be repeated within five minutes.
Attention! The liquid product must penetrate into the surface.
Rough surfaces: residues and foam should be evenly distributed before drying, but not completely dried off. Surface should appear wet.
Polished surfaces: carefully wipe product off, do not allow residues to dry. On large areas, remove the product residues with a squeegee and buff the surface with a machine and a white pad. If product has started to dry, put some Lithofin Stainstop PLUS and wipe the surface.
Check all surfaces for a uniform appearance, if necessary immediately apply more Lithofin Stainstop PLUS. The product can not be removed once dry.
Please Note: Always test the product prior to use. Some stones absorb unevenly which may result in a cloudy appearance. Glass, polishes, plastics, varnish and other surfaces sensitive to solvents must be protected against splashes. Non-absorbent and wet surfaces can not be impregnated. Marble and limestone remain sensitive to acid.
The temperature of the surface should be between 10°C and 25°C. Switch off under floor heating.
Most of the solvents evaporate within two hours.
Floors can be walked on after 12 hours. The impregnator is fully effective after 24 hours.
The coverage depends on the absorbency of the surface. Approximations: rough, highly absorbent stones:
approx. 6 to 8m²/litre, polished stones: approx. 15m² very dense stones: up to 40m²
Outdoors, the colour intensifying component lasts for one to two years, depending on the type of stone and the weather.
The protective component will last for about three years. Indoors, the durability depends on the care products used.
Strong degreasing agents and layer forming products are not suitable.
