Bellinzoni Idea Dark Water & Oil Repellent
Protective impregnating agent, for the treatment of both shiny and rough surfaces of natural stones such as granites, marbles, etc. Specific for dark or black absorbing stones, IDEA DARK enhances deeply the natural colour of stone, covers scratches and flaws of dark/black stone.
Instruction for use
Surface must be clean, dry, without any trace of dirt; stone to be treated must not contain salts (sulphates, chlorides and nitrates) since their presence reduces the absorption. Stains, mildew, crusting must be scraped off otherwise they will be harder to remove after protection.
Apply IDEA DARK without any dilution, using a brush, a cloth, by roller or by spray gun. It is suggested, when possible, to apply the product by brush because it allows the product to penetrate well into the stone. In this case, apply IDEA DARK making a gentle pressure on the brush, to facilitate penetration into frames and cavities. Apply necessary quantity up to complete absorption. After 10/15 minutes, remove excess of product with an absorbing cloth.
During application and subsequent drying, temperature of the substrate should be between 10 and 30°C. In case of application on floor with underfloor heating system turn off heating and allow the stone to cool completely.
Suggestion for use and recommendations:
- Do not dilute the product with water or other solvents because the preparation is ready for use.
- The material to be treated must be completely dry.
- Once treated, the stone must be left to dry for 12 hours to complete polymerization.
- In the case of treatments for statues, vases or decorative items, pay close attention to cavities.
- Before use carefully read the recommendations printed on the tin
- Make a test before use
Marble, Granite, Engineered & Artificial stones.
For protection of marble and granite polished or grinded after grid 800, with 1 litre of product is possible to treat 15/20 sqm. In case of calcareous stone, limestone, sandstone, concrete, with 1 litre of product it is possible to around 10 sqm.
Maintenance of the treated surface:
For proper maintenance of the treatment we recommend carrying out periodic washing with our neutral DETERGENT LEM-3 diluted with water according to the amount of dirt to be removed, without using abrasive tools. The treatment has a variable duration, depending on weather condition it is exposed to and wear of the material. If necessary, it is possible to reapply IDEA DARK above a previous application.
