Refurbishment - LTP
LTP’s ECOPROTEC range includes what’s described as trusted protection and maintenance solutions for floor refurbishment projects. ‘Treatments benefit from the most advanced research in water-based technology and combine high performance with low odour and low VOC formulations,’ says the company. ‘They’re designed to care for and treat natural and engineered stone surfaces – inside and outdoors – and are developed and manufactured by LTP in the UK.’
LTP says its new product innovations include ECOPROTEC Cement, Grout & Salt Residue Remover – a treatment which replaces conventional acids normally used to remove cement and grout residues. ‘The product can be used on all types of tile and natural stone surfaces, except those with a polished finish,’ says the company. ‘Notably, it can be safely applied to unpolished acid-sensitive surfaces, including limestone and travertine. As well as removing new and existing building residues, the Remover also disperses rising salt residues caused by issues including substrate moisture and spot-fixing.’
Other new treatments include ECOPROTEC Blackstone – an outdoor sealer and restorer for dark natural stone and artificial stone surfaces. ‘The new water-based impregnator restores the appearance of faded limestone, marble, slate and concrete,’ says the company.
Said to be suitable for external hard landscaping, ECOPROTEC Blackstone is reportedly fast and safe to use and the permanent finish created provides protection against the elements. ‘It can be applied in multiple coats until the desired colour effect is achieved – from grey to ebony - and is then 'cut back' to remove excess.’
