FILA’s surface care range includes various treatments for floor refurbishment, from textured porcelain and ceramics, to original flagstones and encaustic tiles. All products are reportedly designed to provide high coverage and performance, while providing what’s described as a safe application and protecting original surface characteristics.
Fila says that to deep-clean porcelain and ceramics – including anti-slip tiles with pronounced high and low spots - options include FILAPS87.
‘Used neat, the treatment removes stubborn coloured, organic stains,’ the company says. ‘When diluted, it deep cleans porcelain and ceramics, as well as unpolished stone and cement tiles. ‘FILAPS87 is also particularly effective for textured surfaces with a dirt and residue build-up, where it provides a high performance clean, restoring anti-slip ratings. For acid-sensitive surfaces, other options include best-selling Fila Cleaner – a concentrated neutral detergent that can also be used at various dilutions to tackle different renovation issues.’
After renovation, surfaces requiring sealing can be treated with FILAMP90 ECO PLUS – a solvent-free sealer that forms part of Fila’s Green Line.
‘The LEED-approved sealer is designed for natural stone and polished porcelain surfaces and can be applied internally and externally,’ says Fila. ‘As well as safety and eco-benefits, FILAMP90 ECO PLUS can be applied - in just one application - to surfaces with residual moisture, so it cuts application time by up to 80%.’
To prevent future dirt build-up on textured and matt porcelain, Fila says it’s also developed FILASTOP DIRT. ‘The UV-resistant barrier treatment chemically bonds without leaving a film or altering the material’s original degree of slipperiness - as proven in tests conforming to the BCRA and ASTMC 1028- 2007 methods, and in the English Standard BS 7976 Pendulum tests,’ Fila says.
It adds: ‘Fila’s range includes surface care solutions for all treatment stages and is recommended by more than 200 leading manufacturers of flooring and wall materials.’
