Lithofin MN Stain Stop is a special sealing product from the LITHOFIN-Range for marble, natural and engineered stone (MN).
Lithofin MN Stain Stop contains high quality water and oil resistant components based on alkoxysilanes. Lithofin MN Stain Stop penetrates into the surface and coats the capillaries with an extremely thin, invisible film. Oil, grease and water are not absorbed by the surface, but remain on the surface (12 to 36 hours on polished marble and limestone, up to 48 hours on granite and gneiss). During this time, oil can easily be removed without leaving stains.
The effectiveness of Lithofin MN Stain Stop depends on the amount of product absorbed by the surface.
Lithofin MN Stain Stop does not affect the appearance of natural stone. Some stones may become slightly darker in colour. Lithofin MN Stain Stop greatly reduces the water absorbency of natural stone and only slightly effects the water permeability.
Lithofin Stain Stop is UV-resistant and does not yellow.
Lithofin Stain Stop is for invisible protection against staining and for facilitating maintenance of all natural stone surfaces, including polished marble.
Lithofin Stain Stop is perfect for use on wall and floor surfaces in the kitchen and bathroom, as well as on table tops, window sills and other sensitive surfaces. Please Note: marble and limestone will remain sensitive to acid.

After 30-40 min. surface will be dry and ready to be stepped on. Complete drying process and effectiveness of the impregnation will take approx. 5 days. During this time, do not cover the surface and wipe up any spills immediately.
Lithofin Stain Stop lasts up to 5 years on outdoor surfaces. Indoors the durability depends on the care products used. Strong de-greasing or layer forming products are unsuitable. Heavily used surfaces such as kitchen counters and vanity tops should be touched up once a year with the solvent-free Lithofin STAINSTOP W.
