Second step of the Modern method: For treatment of surfaces which have been pre treated with Lithofin TC Impregnator. Also suitable for terracotta which has been pre treated by the manufacturer. Produces a naturally bright, neutral appearance. Self glossing, water based, easy to apply.
It is a water-based product, which is ready-for use and contains high-quality and natural waxes together with additives. Lithofin terracotta Sealant forms a protective film, which has a natural sheen. The effect of this is to prevent any staining on the surface and prevent penetration. Maintenance is greatly erased because at the same time the surface roughness is reduced.
The appearance of the surface material is improved but it keeps its natural colour structure. The protective film is resistant to UV-light and does not turn yellow with age. It has good resistance to abrasion and can be used easily and safely.
Field of Application and Suitable Surfaces: For the final treatment of internal surfaces consisting of terracotta, earthenware slabs etc., where a natural wax look finish is required. Also suitable for pre-treated tiles.
Please Note: Salt-glazed surfaces cannot be treated with Lithofin terracotta Sealant. Pre-impregnation of untreated, absorbent cotto with Lithofin terracotta Impregnator improves the protective action and gives a lighter appearance to the surface. Do not walk on the surface while it is drying out. Always treat the whole of the room in question. Wipe off splashes on wood, glass and varnished surfaces with a damp cloth.
Directions for Use: Apply Lithofin terracotta Sealant generously and uniformly to the clean, dry surface using a roller or sponge. It can also be applied using a garden-spray if followed up by the immediate use of a sponge to achieve uniform distribution. After a drying time of about 40-60 minutes, a second application must be made. Avoid the formation of small puddles. If the base material is very absorbent a third application may be necessary. If treating any pre-treated or waxed surfaces apply the product in a diluted form. The suitable temperature range for application is 5-25°C. Clean any equipment used for the application with water.
Coverage: About 5-10m2/L, for soft earthenware slabs, Spanish or French varieties of terracotta (double application). about 10-15m2/L, for machine or hand-pressed varieties (double application). about 10-15m2/L, for pre-impregnated or pre-treated surfaces.
After Treatment: For subsequent care treatment, we recommend Lithofin Easy Care. If the protective effect diminishes, Lithofin Terracotta Sealant can also be added to the wash water.
