A spirit based, silicone impregnator that penetrates into the surface of stone and forms an invisible film within the pores and capillaries. Prevents staining from water, dirt and oil, allowing the stone to breathe, and aids maintenance. For use on all polished and unpolished natural and artificial stone.
A special, ready-to-use product from the Lithofin range for marble, natural and artificial stone. Lithofin MN Stain-Stop contains silicones and hardeners that repel water and oil effectively. Lithofin MN Stain-Stop penetrates into the surface and forms a thin, invisible film in the capillaries. This stops oils from penetrating the surface for about 6-24 hours for marble and granite and up to 8 days for limestone. Within this time, it is possible to wipe away oils without leaving stains. The effect depends on the absorbed quantity of the product. Using Lithofin MN Stain-Stop does not usually affect the appearance of the stone, however, some intensification of colour may occur in darker stone types. It is UVresistant (yellowing of stone will not occur) and dries without leaving a sticky residue. The active ingredients pose no health hazard after drying
Field of application and suitable surfaces:
Lithofin MN Stain-Stop is used as a stain repellent for all marble, natural and artificial stone surfaces. Particularly suitable for walls and floors of kitchens, bathrooms and other areas at risk from staining, as well as for table tops, window sills and domestic surfaces. Polished and ground marble, polished and natural cleft limestone, slate, varying finishes of granite, reconstituted stone, artificial stone, terrazzo and resin bonded stone.
With polished marble, red wine, ketchup or cola can cause etching. Never allow Lithofin MN Stain-Stop to dry on the surface, as it is not easily removed. Only to be used on absorbent and dry surfaces. Glass, ceramics and surfaces sensitive to solvents must be protected. A test area is advised before full treatment.
Directions for use:
The stone surfaces to be treated must be clean and dry. On an absorbent surface, apply generously and evenly with a brush or lambs wool roller. On less absorbent surfaces apply with a brush or cloth. Within 30-40 minutes, treat the surface again to permit the impregnator to be absorbed. Then after 30 minutes remove any residue completely using a cloth. Over large surfaces, draw off excess material using a window rubber and polish using a using a Numatic scrubbing machine with a 3M polishing pad.
dependent on absorbent properties of stone: about. 15m2/L for polished stone surfaces. About 6-8m2/L, for natural and sawn stone. About 3-6m2/L, for porous sandstone and highly porous limestone.
preliminary drying: 2 hours (safe to walk on with smooth sole shoes). Complete drying: 24-48 hours (full effectiveness of impregnator).
for regular washing of floors we recommend Lithofin Easy-Care Cleaner, which supports the effect of Lithofin MN Stain-Stop.
