EFFE 2 is CONCENTRATED; always dilute before use.
EFFE 2 is water-based, water repellent protection with a permanently matte wet-look and high penetrating power, which is used on vertical and horizontal surfaces, both indoors and outdoors.
EFFE 2 CONCENTRATO is an aqueous emulsion of an organo-siloxane reactive with excellent diffusion on the materials. Chemically binding to the substrate, it creates highly reduced water absorption without reducing breathability drastically (10% maximum).
All porous building materials, including stone, antique marble and sandblasted material, excluding gypsum and polished marble.
Perform preliminary tests to determine the correct dilution of the product and the desired effect. An uneven tone may appear on low absorption materials.
SHAKE BEFORE USING
Always dilute by pouring the product in pure water and not vice versa.
- Add 250 ml to 1.250 litres of water (1+5) for high absorption surfaces, such as handmade terracotta, sand-blasted bricks, chiselled stones, terracotta vases, etc.;
- Add 250 ml to 2.250 litres of water (1+9) for medium absorption surfaces such as industrial terracotta, rough natural stones, slate, facing material, etc. This dilution is available on request as EFFE 200 PRONTO ALL’USO;
- Add 250 ml to 3.750 litres of water (1+15) for low absorption surfaces, such as granite and polished marble, travertine, slate, stone, porphyry, etc.
Apply the solution obtained on clean, dry surfaces with a brush, roller, applicator or spray (low pressure). Apply 2 wet-on-wet coats on vertical applications; wait at least 4 hours before applying an additional coat.
Indoor floors: remember that the floor will be waxed.
For the wax finish (polished, satin or matte), wait at least 48 hours for the floor to dry and have no damp patches.
For very rough surfaces, such as sand-blasted terracotta or chiselled stone, apply a coat of SOLWAX 48 hours before waxing.
