Lithofin Stain Stop W Impregnating Sealer
Premium quality water based impregnating sealer. Provides optimal protection against oil, grease and water for absorbent natural and engineered stones
The solvent free Lithofin STAINSTOP >W< has different chemical properties than solvent based impregnators. Therefore, the application method differs from other impregnators.
Lithofin STAINSTOP >W< is a water based, solvent free impregnator. The product is ready-to-use and contains highly active water and oil repellent polymers and additives.

This special impregnator effectively protects surfaces against the penetration of oil, grease, dirt and water, and it largely prevents staining. The product penetrates into the surface and forms an extremely thin, invisible film in the capillaries. The appearance of the treated surface is either
unaffected or only slightly altered.
Durability: up to to four years depending on the type and use of the treated material. The product is UV resistant and does not yellow.
Field of Use:
Facilitates maintenance on stain sensitive surfaces, such as floors in kitchens and dining areas, tables, counter tops etc. Surfaces can be polished, honed or rough. Suitable for indoor and outdoor use.
Surfaces: many natural stones, such as polished and rough hard stones, rough and honed limestone and concrete stone, terracotta, absorbent unglazed tiles, etc.
Please Note: the suitability of the product for marble and other acid sensitive stones with a polished surface and all types of fully vitrified ceramic tiles should be confirmed prior to use. Confirm suitability on pre-treated surfaces prior to use.
Directions for Use:
The surface should be completely dry, clean and free of stains. Shake the bottle before use. Apply generously and evenly using a mop, brush, roller or sponge. Ensure the material is evenly distributed on polished surfaces by wiping over several times. Lithofin STAINSTOP >W< can also be applied with a garden pump spray and then be distributed evenly with a wide brush.
Highly absorbent surfaces should receive a second application after approx. 20 minutes. Avoid puddles and drips which should be wiped away immediately. Ensure that all surplus product is removed, do not allow it to dry on the surface. Clean all tools with water immediately after use.
Drying Time: the full effect will be achieved after 48 hours. Keep the surface free of water and oil during this time.
Please Note: some materials may appear slightly darker after treatment. We recommend an initial trial application. Always treat the entire surface in a room. The product does not protect against acid ingress. Remove splashes on wood, glass, PVC, lacquered surfaces and mastic filled
joints with a cloth.
Application Temperature: 10°C to 25°C.
Coverage: absorbent surfaces (e.g. sandstone) approx. 7m²/L, rough concrete stone approx. 10m²/L, polished stone up to 20m²/L.
Touching up treated Surfaces
Should the effect begin to fade, the surface can be retreated with Lithofin STAINSTOP >W< or Lithofin MN Stain-Stop. Surfaces that are subject to heavy use (kitchen work tops,
bathrooms, etc.) should be touched up once per year.
