Protecting polished marble

Surface sealing made easy with FILAMP90 ECO

Tile sealants play an essential role in protecting natural materials – and make surfaces easier to maintain.  But, contrary to belief, application needn’t be time consuming or unpleasant!


The new breed of solvent-free products - like FILAMP90 ECO - have been developed to provide fast, safe application, without any compromise in performance.  As FILAMP90 ECO is water based, it can also be applied to slightly damp surfaces, which can speed things up no end – especially if you’re sealing an outdoor patio or path.   


MP90Eco-marble-sealerFILAMP90 ECO can be used on polished porcelain, ceramics, polished natural stone, terrazzo and crackle-glaze tiles. It has a very low VOC content, so can safely be applied indoors – even on food contact surfaces – without risk of contamination. 


Always thoroughly clean the surface, with a suitable detergent, before applying a sealant.  If any fixing residue remains, it will clog the pores (which are invisible to the naked eye) and the sealant won’t be able to enter the material’s structure and do it’s job. 


Apply FILAMP90 ECO undiluted with a flat brush or lambswool applicator.  If the surface is porous, remove any excess after ten minutes, using a floor polishing machine with a white pad.  On less porous surfaces, the sealer should be left to penetrate for about four hours.


FILAMP90 ECO is LEED-compliant and it comes in 250ml, one litre and five litre containers.  One litre will treat around 30m² of stone or 30-40m² of porcelain.
