FILA has launched a new protective treatment for natural stone surfaces.
New FILAMARBLE AID is an odourless, solvent-free treatment that protects against the aggression of staining, blocking the damaging effects of acids, alkalines, stains and heat.
It creates a natural-look polished barrier for stone, marble, limestone and travertine that won’t yellow, discolour or create an ‘acrylic’ look.
FILAMARBLE AID has a safe, water-based formulation, with a low VOC content.
It can be applied to new and existing surfaces, where it ‘buys time’ by giving protection for up to 24 hours.
Unlike traditional treatments, which are UV-cured and removed by grinding, the new protector is applied onto a clean, dry surface, in two coats, with a short-hair applicator.
It can then be easily removed, if necessary, with FILANOPAINT STAR and re-applied.
The new treatment is ideal for all bathroom and kitchen surfaces and is certified safe for food preparation areas. As well as post-installation application, it can also be applied ‘in-line’ as a factory finish, to give protection before fitting.
FILAMARBLE AID is a two-component treatment, and it gives approximately 9.2 m2of coverage per 233 ml package. Specialist advice on the application is available via FILA’s partner, Superior Stone.
