Usage and Application
USES: VIVID™ for Stone is an innovative low V.O.C. sealer and color enhancer for all natural stone including marble, limestone, saltillo clay tile and slate. VIVID is a specially formulated siloxane/silicone resin that is remarkably UV stable and will continue to have impressive performance for up to 20 years.
FEATURES: VIVID can be used in interior or exterior applications, and it provides excellent water repellency thereby cracking, mold, and mildew growth, and efflorescence. In addition to its water repellency it contains a Fluoropolymer that gives the surface excellent resistance to water and oil based stains. VIVID can be applied as an enhanced finish or gloss finish so it is an excellent choice for almost any enhancing application. It bonds both physically and chemically to the surface for long lasting protection and appearance, and it is vapor permeable (breathable) so it won’t crack, blister, or peel. 100% active solution so you use less
DIRECTIONS: Use only as directed. Before applying, it is recommended that preliminary tests be carried out to determine usage and to test the effectiveness of the treatment. Apply solutions as supplied to the surface using a soft lint free cloth, sponge, or microfiber pad. For an enhanced no gloss finish, apply one to two coats waiting 5 minutes between coats, after application allow product to dwell 10 minutes on surface and buff dry with a clean, lint free cloth. (It is important that the surface be buffed completely when seeking no gloss finish, any product remaining on surface after dwell time should be removed). For an enhanced gloss finish, apply 2 even coats waiting 5 minutes between coats and allow surface to dwell 10 minutes. After 10 minutes dwell time, apply a 3rd coat making sure finish is even and consistent and leave the surface to cure. Puddled or excess product should be removed before cure to ensure a consistent finish.
COVERAGE: Approximately 200– 2000 sq. ft. per gallon depending on surface porosity, density and desired finish
