FILA Surface Care Solutions launches award-winning anti-acid FILAMARBLE AID in Middle East
Innovative acid and stain-resistant protection now available in GCC and South Pacific Asia markets
The Middle East branch of FILA Surface Care Solutions has just launched FILAMARBLE AID, a new acid and stain-resistant protective treatment for marble and natural stone surfaces, that won the “best of innovation 2018” award from the International Surface Event, Stonexpo Marmomac. The new FILAMARBLE AID is an odourless, solvent-free treatment that protects against the damaging effects of acids, alkaline cleaners and stains. It creates a natural-look polished barrier for stone, marble, limestone and travertine that won’t yellow, discolour or create an ‘acrylic’ look.
“Due to the inherent qualities of marble, numerous projects make use of it for both indoors and outdoors areas, yet so far there has been no effective protection against acidic substances or stains, which has sometimes had disastrous consequences.” Explained Fabrizio Nicoli, Commercial Director of the Middle East branch of FILA. “As surface protection specialists, the FILA R&D team has been working on this protection for a while now and we are very excited that our award-winning treatment is now available in the GCC and South Pacific Asia markets.”
FILAMARBLE AID does not alter the stone and leaves its surface intact. Its safe, water-based formulation has a low VOC content and forms a barrier against stones thanks to its micro-coating technology. It can be used on both new and pre-treated materials, including outdoor surfaces, as it is resistant to UV rays and thermal shocks. The new treatment is ideal for all bathroom and kitchen surfaces, matte and polished alike, and is certified safe for food preparation areas.
“Kitchen and bathroom worktops are naturally more exposed to acidic substances, which corrode the polished finish, leaving the surface looking dull and deteriorated. FILAMARBLE AID, the acid and stain-resistant protective agent with a polished finish, is the perfect answer to avoid such damage since it can be applied ‘in-line’ as a factory finish, to give protection before fitting”, added Nicoli.
This innovative award-winning FILA product protects both the environment and people, in full compliance with VOC regulations (Volatile Organic Compounds): the new low-VOC acid and stain protector helps to create safe living and working conditions.
