Optimal protection for absorbent, stain sensitive natural stone
surfaces. Lithofin Stain Stop largely prevents penetration of oil, grease, and
water. Highly recommended in kitchens and bathrooms. Ideal for indoor, outdoor
use on all stones, effective for many years. No gloss.
A spirit-based, silicone
impregnator that penetrates 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
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 UV resistant (yellowing of stone will not occur) and dries without
leaving a sticky residue. The active ingredients pose no health hazard after
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 tabletops,
windowsills, 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 lamb’s 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 pneumatic 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
