Bellinzoni Idea Rapid Colour
IDEA RAPID COLOR is a product specifically developed to protect, enhance colour and give an antique look to very absorbing stones, i.e. Sandstone, Limestone, etc.
IDEA RAPID COLOR deeply enhances the colour of treated material and gives a shiny satin finish, it works as a protective against stains due to oils, greases, humidity and prevents formation of mildew.
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 RAPID COLOR 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).
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 underfloor 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 48 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
Limestone, Sandstone, Cement and very absorbent stones.
For the protection of limestone, one litre of product can treat 8 to 12 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 RAPID COLOR above a previous application.
