Impregnating agent

for non-porous surfaces

ropimex Chemicals Impregnating agent. Ready-to-use, water and oil-repellent impregnating agent for non-porous surfaces such as PVC, laminate/laminate flooring

ropimex® impregnating agent is a temporary easy-to-clean impregnating agent based on Sol-Gel technology for PVC/laminate/laminate flooring and plastics (check material compatibility beforehand). ropimex® impregnating agent leaves a thin film on the surface, which reduces the adhesion of dirt. Water and other liquids run off more easily and leave fewer marks behind. Ideally use a mild cleaning agent, such as GreenClean, for cleaning

Wear gloves and goggles during application. The surface must be clean, dry and free from grease.
It is applied in three steps:

    1. Clean
    2. Coating
    3. Dry/cure

1. Clean

The surface must be dry, dirt-free and free of oil or grease. Weakly acidic or alkaline or tenside cleaners can also be used, however. In this case, care must be taken to ensure that the surface is thoroughly cleaned/rinsed with water before coating. As the final step, we recommend cleaning with an alcohol such as ethanol or isopropanol. Please check that material compatibility on a sample surface beforehand.

2. Coating/impregnation

The material can be processed at a temperature from 5°C to 30°C. We recommend applying ropimex® impregnating agent on a cloth (fleece or microfibre cloth) and using it to work on the surface to be impregnated. If streaks develop, polish the surface up with a cloth until no more clouding is visible.

3. Dry/cure

The effect begins once the coating is dry, after 12 hours (20°C). If used at a higher temperature, the curing time is reduced.
