(cod. SN1) Water repellent protecive treatment for natural stone (polished), plaster, terracotta
SIOX-5 S Protettivo per pietra naturale

THE SURFACE

The natural stone is appreciated for its excellent mechanical strenght, for the variety of colours and for the different finishing possibilities. Despite its resistance, the natural stone is subject to water damage and chemical attack with different effects due to the porosity of the material and to the origin. In general, stones with high water absorption level are more prone to stain.
The intended use of the stone is thus strictly related to its resistance to stress as foot traffic, runoff, chemical attack, pollution, food contact and cleaning products.

ADVANTAGES OF THE  SIOX-5 S TREATMENT

SIOX‐5 S (cod. SN1) is a  protective treatment able to improve water and oil repellent features of the natural stones, suitable also for other materials as cotto and plasters. The treatment prevents substances carried by water from penetrating the porosity of the material. The cleaning of the surfaces is thus easier and less aggressive and the treatment can be applied for regular maintenance of floors, cladding and countertops of natural stone.
From a technical and application points of view, the product shows the following advantages:
Easy to apply: it can be directly poured or sprayed on the polished stone and  and  distributed with a microfibre cloth.
The spray application is suitable for large absorbent areas (cotto and plasters), increasing the yeld and the speed of the treatment.
The treatment dries in few minutes and the surface is protected after 30 minutes from the application.
The product can be applied also on wet plaster or when carbonation is not complete (after 24 hours); the alkaline surface does not undermine the performances of the product; working times in sites and scaffolding presence are reduced.
The treatment  can be easily realized in production lines with automated spray or roll systems with subsequent polishing for the removal of excess of product.
