Lithofin KF 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 instead remain on the surface. During this time, dirt can easily be removed without leaving stains. The effectiveness depends on the amount of product absorbed by the surface. The characteristic appearance of the surface material is not or only slightly altered.
Field of Use:
For protecting unglazed ceramics against stains and for facilitating every-day maintenance. Highly recommended for use in kitchens, bathrooms and other areas which may come into contact with water and oil.
Please Note: Lithofin KF Stain-Stop does not or only slightly affect the slip resistance properties of the surface.
Directions for Use:
The surface to be treated must be completely dry and clean. Where no prior experience exists or in cases of doubt, try the product in an inconspicuous area prior to use. Areas should be treated in sections of approx. 10 to 15 sq./m
On highly absorbent surfaces: evenly and generously apply Lithofin KF Stain Stop with a brush or roller. Avoid foam.
On less absorbent surfaces: use a brush or a cloth. After approx. 20 minutes, apply Lithofin KF Stain Stop again to ensure that the entire surface is saturated. Then carefully remove all surface residues with a cloth. On large areas use a squeegee and a polishing machine with a white pad. Do not allow any product to dry on the surface. On highly absorbent surfaces, a second application after approx. 24 hours may be necessary.
Attention! the liquid product must sink into the surface. Do not allow the product to dry on the surface. Dry residues will not be removable after 6 hours. Always try the product in an inconspicuous area prior to use. Lithofin KF Stain-Stop can only be used on absorbent and completely dry surfaces. Glass, ceramics, wood, and other surfaces sensitive to solvents must be protected against splashes.
Application Temperature: the temperature of the surface should be between 5°C and 25°C. Switch off under floor heating.
Drying Time: most solvents will evaporate within two hours. The product will be fully effective after approx. 48 hours.
Coverage: depends on the absorbency of the material.
Estimates: clay slabs: 4 to 8 sq./m / litre, Unglazed quarry tiles: 8 to 12 sq./m / litre
