CLEANING AND MAINTENANCE OF VICENZA'S STONE
Water-stain repellent, consolidating treatments, cleaning and maintenance of Vicenza’s Stone
Our experience in the construction of floors and walls in Vicenza stone and related materials teaches us to supply the marbles without treatments or waxes, since in the laying and grouting phases they would significantly hamper their natural drying. We believe that the best aesthetic- functional result is obtained by completely treating grouting and slabs / products after laying and once it has been ascertained that both the material, both the screed and the grouting are sufficiently dry. There are many companies on the market that offer different water repellent solutions. Below is a data sheet drawn up by the company Fila Industria Chimica S.p.A .. In our opinion, most of the products on the market are valid, but not being responsible for the treatment, we leave the customer freedom of choice on the type of product that he deems most appropriate to use, making sure that the seller and the tractor are given appropriate guarantees. The following data are the result of careful research and experimentation. This documentation is made available to you only for your use for the purpose of promoting and selling our. materials.
