Protect ITR

Protect ITR is water and oil resistant impregnation sealer.
Protect IT R

WATER AND OIL RESISTANT IMPREGNATION SEALER FOR NATURAL STONE

  • B.B.A Approved and CE Marked
  • Improves the Thermal Insulation Value of a Treated Surface
  • Allows the Surface to Breathe
  • It prevents water and oil infiltration
  • Use on Vertical and Horizontal Surfaces/Interior and Exterior
  • Will Not Change The Appearance of a Treated Surface
  • Contains Zero V.O.C
* The 15-year quality warranty is valid when the product is applied by an authorized operator.

 

Protect IT R is impregnation sealer for all Historical Heritage Buildings and Monuments.

It is easy to use and it will prove to be successful on any surface.

 

Application

Always test apply on a small hidden portion of the substrate before applying

  • Substrate Quality: Cracks must be repaired using a mortar repair system.
  • Moisture content should be equal or less than 12% to a depth of 1cm.
  • Substrate Preparation: Clean, free from dust, dirt, oil, efflorescence, organic growth and old paint films.
  • To remove any residual of spores, molds or organic growth in general, it is possible to treat the surface with the natural moss killer Essenzio. In case of dirt or old paint residues, wash the substrate at a maximum pressure of 150 bar. In the event of salt efflorescence, you can use the IBIX salt extractor DESAL. If any residues or unwanted patinas persist, it is recommended a preliminary surface cleaning, using sorghum brushes or IBIX selective micro-aero-abrasion technology.

Features

  • Will prevent airborne dirt and stains, including chewing gum, from adhering to the surface. It has a good resistanace to graffiti
  • Will reduce surface degradation as atmospheric contaminants no longer stick to the surface
  • Will not alter the aesthetic of the treated surface (invisible protection) or change its colour. A treated surface will remain breathable.
  • Will always be easy to apply on any surfaces, you can use the surface within 1 hour of application.
  • Will help reduce further on-going maintenance and costs on a protected surface.
  • Will prevent surfaces from deteriorating through repeated “Freeze/Thaw” cycles.
  • Is suitable for ground surfaces with high levels of foot traffic. UV resistant. Non Flamable. Non toxic. And Environmentally Friendly.
  • Independent tests prove that a vertical surface treated with PROTECTiT R 100 improves thermal insulation value by 16% (It removes the cold wall syndrome associated with water saturated walls).

 

Notes

  • PROTECT iT R 100: Cannot be re-applied after curing as there will be a loss of adhesion.
  • PROTECT iT R 100: is unable to work if applied over non-absorbent surfaces.
  • In presence of saline efflorescence, the surface must be treated with a IBIX salt extractor DESAL before the application of PROTECT iT R 100.
  • Do not apply PROTECT iT R 100 if rain is expected within 4 hours.

Instruction

May be applied using low pressure spray, brush or roller. Ensure application is from bottom to top on vertical surfaces taking care not to let the production run. Any subsequent applications must be applied until saturation.

Coverage

  • Porous-Natural Stone
  • (Limestone, Sandstone): 2-5 SqM/Ltr
  • Low Porosity Stone
  • (Granite, Marble, Slate, Terracotta): 8 – 16 SqM/Ltr
*The coverage may vary according to the porosity of the stone.
