Problem
pav-pietraIn order to preserve the natural beauty of stone materials, used in flooring, it is necessary to limit the interaction of outdoor pollutants with the material itself, through specific impregnation or finishing treatments.

In this case the treatments used must guarantee a high resistance, as they are called to resist outdoor stresses such as: irradiation, trampling, grease stains.

CLEANING

The cleaning of stone surfaces must take into account the chemical nature of the stone and this can be done differently, on the basis of the dirt that must be removed, always acting with balanced and suitably diluted products.

Below is a table with the description of the most common types of cleaning.

• Apply pure CS
Allow it to act for not less than 10 min.
Pour BASICOdiluted to 50%
Work it for a few minutes
Remove the whole with vacuum cleaner
• Apply ACIDOdiluted to 5%
Work for a few minutes
Remove the whole with a vacuum cleaner

NEW FLOORING

• Apply ACIDOdiluted to 5%

Remove the whole with vacuum cleaner
• Rinse with clean water
Remove the whole with vacuum cleaner

UNTREATED STONE

• Pour BASICOdiluted to 20%
Work it for a few minutes
Remove the whole with vacuum cleaner

SOLUTION FOR OUTDOOR

The treatment of outdoor stone floors is necessary in order to maintain the physical and chromatic characteristics of the material.

WATER REPELLENT TREATMENT

• Apply IDRO BASE in two hands wet on wet

STAIN REPELLENT TREATMENT

• Apply IMPRESTONEor IDRO PTA in two hands distant approx 1-2 hours from each other

STAIN REPELLENT TREATMENT – WET LOOK

THE TECHNICIAN RECOMMENDS
Before carrying out a finishing treatment on indoor flooring, it is advisable to always carry out a water absorption test on the flooring in question in order to evaluate the degree of absorbance, and then choose the appropriate treatment
