Bellinzoni Idea Gold Water & Oil Repellent
Our Bellinzoni Idea Gold is an exceptional anti-stain product based on nanotechnology formulation, it protects marble and granite stones from a wide range of stains.
Idea Gold is a transparent protective used for maximum protection of all stone surfaces against water penetration, oil, fats and moisture. IDEA GOLD works great even on shiny materials, it allows the stone to breathe, blocks efflorescence, penetrates deep, does not alter the natural colour of treated surface and does not create any film.
Idea Gold leaves a spectacular “pearl effect”: water droplets on treated surface take shape of spheres, which glide away on sloping surfaces.
Laboratory tests demonstrate the UV resistance of product, which has no colour change even after prolonged exposure. It is perfectly invisible and leaves the original colour of the material unchanged. It prevents formation of mould.
Instruction for use:
Surface must be clean and dry; stains, mildew, crusting must be scraped off otherwise they will be harder to remove after protection. Application can be done by brush, by roller or by spray gun. It is suggested, when possible, to apply the product by brush because it allows the product to penetrate better into the stone. Application of IDEA GOLD by brush, making pressure, will facilitate penetration into frames and cavities. Continuously repeat the application, without interruption, until the stone has been saturated (the stone does not absorb further product). It is also possible to apply IDEA GOLD using a low pressure spray dispenser, at a 20-25 cm. distance from surface, taking care of remove possible leakages. In case of excess after the application, remove it by rubbing with a cloth soaked in the product and then dab with a dry cloth.
During the application and subsequent drying, the temperature of the substrate should be between 10 and 30°C. In case of application on floor with under floor heating system turn off heating and allow the stone to cool completely.
Suggestion for use and recommendations:
- We recommend applying the product until complete saturation of the stone. Taking care to apply it wet on wet, ie without leaving the first coat to dry, but continuing the application.
- 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 24 hours to complete polymerization. Complete polymerization will be in 7 days.
- 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 and always perform a preliminary test,
- Engineered & Artificial stones.
For the protection of polished marble and granite, one litre of product can treat 15 to 25 sqm depending on the absorption and degree of finish of the material.
Maintenance of the treated surface:
For proper maintenance of the treatment we recommend carrying out periodic washing with our LEM-3 neutral detergent, 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 GOLD above a previous application.
