Bellinzoni Idea XC Water & Oil Repellent (Wet Look)
IDEA XC is an impregnating sealer to protect stones against water, oil, grease and humidity giving an attractive wet-look effect; optimised for polished materials. When applied, IDEA XC penetrates the stone without forming an unsightly plastic film.
IDEA XC will make the stone repel water and oil by penetrating deeply into the stone, protecting it from water and oily substances but allowing the stone to breath while the humidity can evaporate, therefore blocking efflorescence.
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 XC 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 the stone is completely saturatated. Taking care to apply it wet on wet, ie without letting the first coat dry, but continuing the application.

- In the case of treatments for statues, vases or decorative items, pay close attention to cavities.
- Carefully read recommendations printed on label and perform a preliminary test on a small area before actual use.

For very absorbent materials like Limestone and Sandstone we suggest our IDEA RAPID.
For protection of marble and granite polished or grinded after grid 800, with 1 litre of product is possible to treat 15/25 sqm. In case of calcareous stone, limestone, sandstone, concrete, with 1 litre of product it is possible to treat 8/15 sqm.
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 XC above a previous application
