Impregnating agent for natural and artificial stones, marbles and granites
It is a ready-to-use aqueous microemulsion of a solvent-free, water and oil repellent impregnating agent based on modern C6-fluorides, silanes and siloxanes. KRAFT MARBLE AQUA is suitable for impregnating of all types of porous, absorbent construction materials such as marble, cotto, granite, travertine and fine stoneware. KRAFT Marble Aqua provides a complete protection of marbles. Due to its stain release properties, the substrates stay dry and clean. KRAFT MARBLE AQUA provides a reliable and long-lasting protection for natural and artificial stones and marbles against water intrusion, eﬄorescence and destruction by water-soluble pollutants as well as against frost damage and the attack of micro-organism. In addition to the water-repellent eﬀect, KRAFT MARBLE AQUA provides excellent and long-lasting oleophobic (oil repellent) properties to the treated substrate. Therefore KRAFT MARBLE AQUA is perfectly suited for the water and oil repellent treatment of such substrates. KRAFT MARBLE AQUA does not aﬀect the natural color shade of the treated material. There is no significant change to the physical properties, in particular, the water vapor permeability (sd value), of the substrate treated with KRAFT MARBLE AQUA.

SURFACE PREPARATION AND APPLICATION
» To ensure adequate substrate penetration, the surface must be dry, clean and free of dust, oil, salt, rust, and residues. Remove all moss, fungi, and algae by mechanical abrasion and wash with soapy water and allow the substrate to dry.
» Deep penetration is required for a long-lasting and reliable water and oil repellent eﬀect. In order to allow maximum substrate penetration and eﬀective lifetime, the substrate should be totally dry, as water inside the capillaries of the substrate prevents deep penetration by the product.
» KRAFT MARBLE AQUA can be applied by use of rollers, by painting, flooding or airless spraying.
» The water and oil repellent eﬀect develops within 24 hours of application.
» On very absorbent substrates it is recommended a second application after 3 hours in favourable weather conditions.
» Tools: Roller, brush, airless spray gun.
» Cleaning: The tools and spillages may be cleaned immedi-ately with soapy water.
» Thinning: No thinning is required.
» Dry to touch: 1-2 hours at 250C and 50% RH (drying times are longer at lower temperatures and at higher relative humidity).
» Dry to recoat: 3 hours.
» Complete through drying time: 14 days, at 25ºC and RH 50%.
» Always test product on a small area first and allow a 24 hour cure time to determine the ease of application and desired results.
» Remove any lose material with a cloth.
» Stir well before use and during application.
» Do not apply at temperatures below 10ºC and over 35ºC, as well as at relative humidity levels exceeding 65%.
» Do not apply if rain is imminent.
» Available in 1L, 4L and 10L plastic containers.
