Geo-Fix Stone Protector has an advanced fluoro-resin formula that has been specifically designed to provide long lasting protection on all natural stone from most liquids including water, oil and petrol.
Coverage rate depends on the porosity of the paving but a 5 litre tub will seal approximately 20-40 square metres.
On untreated stone liquids are absorbed easily into the surface causing staining and water erosion, however once the surface has been treated with Geo-Fix Stone Protector it has long term protection from liquids. The protection is visibly noticeable as liquid forms globules on the surface.
Geo-Fix Stone Protector is ideal for protecting the “investment” of natural stone, as it not only provides protection from liquids, but it will not change the colour or appearance of the stone.
It can be used internally and externally on all natural stone, inlcuding Yorkstone, Indian Sandstones as well as masonry cementitious substrates, marble, terracotta, slate, fireplace surrounds and hearths, floor tiles etc.
Ensure the surfaces to be treated are clean and free from any mould or fungal growth, waxes or coatings. Surfaces may be damp, but contain no standing water. Mask off surrounding areas to prevent contamination.
IMPORTANT: GEO-FIX PAVING JOINTING COMPOUND must be allowed to dry/cure for a minimum of one week prior to application of GEO-FIX STONE PROTECTOR.
Always test a small area for compatibility prior to full scale application.
Apply by brush or roller (from suitable container) or suitable low pressure spray, ensuring an even distribution. Work well into surface for maximum penetration. DO NOT LEAVE SURPLUS MATERIAL ON THE SURFACE. If necessary, wipe up excess with a damp cloth approximately 30 mins after application. Ensure an even and thorough coverage, especially on textured stone where “ponding” of the product must be avoided. Normally, only one coat is required, but for very porous stones, a second coat may be required, which must be applied approximately 30 minutes after first coat (i.e. before first coat is fully dry). Allow to dry forapproximately 5-7 hours for foot traffic depending on air temperature. Open to vehicular traffic 48-72 hours after application. Do not apply below +5˚C or above +35°C. Clean all tools etc with water before product dries. Aftercare: Areas treated with this product can be cleaned with warm water and detergent or EVERBUILD MOSS-AWAY. If oil or petrol is spilled on paving, clean up spill before penetration is allowed to occur (this will happen in time).
- Do not apply to non porous surfaces.
- Do not apply this product to painted surfaces or surfaces that have previously been treated with stearate or silicone based water seals.
- Do not apply this product if rain is imminent (within 6 hours at 20˚C).
- This product is fully compatible with GEO-FIX PAVING JOINTING COMPOUND, but will not make the paving compound water repellent, only the surrounding paving.
