Protecting limestone during installation
Limestone is a fabulous flooring material but, because it’s very porous, a little extra care is needed during installation.
Before fixing, always pre-seal your tiles. This protects the surface from being marked and it eliminates ‘picture framing’ which is caused when grout bleeds into the edge of the limestone.
Pre-grouting protector, FILAPRW200 is a great solution, as it protects without altering appearance, it’s really easy to apply – and it’s VOC-free too. To apply:
- Clean the surface to remove any dust.
- Apply an even coat of FILAPRW200 using an airless spray pump, paintbrush or fleece pad.
- Make sure you apply it right up to the edges!
- Leave the surface to dry overnight, before fixing, and remove any excess grout with a sponge before it dries completely.
Why is it important to pre-treat?
ADVANTAGES OF PRE-TREATMENT:
- it protects surfaces from grout residues
- it makes grouting easier
- it makes cleaning after laying simple
- it speeds up drying after initial washing and therefore also the subsequent treatment stages
