HMK® S731 is a ready to use silane based impregnator that reduces the penetration of water and dirt into all natural stone surfaces (soft and hard stones), concrete, and unglazed bricks. HMK® S731 is vapor permeable, suitable for interior and exterior use, and will leave little to no aesthetic change on the surface. Clean surface thoroughly before treatment using HMK® R155 Intensive Cleaner (diluted) followed by a flood rinse with water and allow at least 24 hours to dry (max residual moisture of 6-8%) before sealing. If under floor heating exists, switch it off and allow the surface to cool to room temperature.
Apply to chemically clean and dry surface with natural bristle brush. One or two thin and even applications wet on wet are usually sufficient. Allow 20 minutes between each application for penetration. Repeat process for more absorbent surfaces. Thoroughly remove excess product 5-10 minutes after last application with a white terry cloth; add solvent if necessary to facilitate the excess removal. Do not allow HMK® S731 to dry on the surface as it will be very difficult to remove once dried. It is possible to use HMK® S731 in an airless sprayer for use on vertical surfaces. Do not walk on the treated area until it has has dried completely. Protect surface from rain and humidity for three days after treatment is applied. Do not apply to rubber, plastics, varnished surfaces and solvent intolerant surfaces. For regular cleaning and continued protection use HMK® P324 Liquid Stone Soap, a no-rinse natural product.
