Surface care specialist, Fila, has introduced a new formulation for its protective dirt-barrier treatment – FILASTOP DIRT. The new treatment can now be used on polished lappato tiles, as well as textured and unpolished porcelain. Once applied, it chemically bonds, without leaving a film, to create invisible protection against dirt build-up and enabling fast and easy cleaning. The new formulation can be used inside and outdoors, where it provides a breathable, UV-resistant barrier, without altering surface slip-resistant properties.
Following application to a dry, clean surface, FILASTOP DIRT improves surface resistance to foot traffic and general wear. It also provides long-lasting protection against watery and oily stains, and limits water retention, as demonstrated by lab tests conducted on surfaces laid in according with UNI 11493. As well as high traffic areas – from shopping centres to office foyers – the treatment can also be used to ease maintenance in the home. It is also suitable for use on outside surfaces, including cladding, in parking areas and on terraces.
FILASTOP DIRT will not yellow, nor alter the material’s original degree of slipperiness, as proven in tests conforming to the B.C.R.A. and ASTMC 1028- 2007 methods, and in the English Standard BS 7976 Pendulum tests. The new formulation is available in 500ml cans, which provides increased coverage of approximately 35m2.
