How-to: Guide for Sealing Natural Stone

To seal natural stone we fully recommend  Lithofin MN Stain-stop.

How does it work.

Lithofin MN Stain-Stop penetrates into the surface and coats the capillaries with an extremely thin, invisible film. Oil, grease and water are not absorbed by the surface, but remain on the surface (12 to 36 hours on polished marble and limestone, up to 48 hours on granite and gneiss).

During this time, dirt can easily be removed without leaving stains. The effectiveness depends on the amount of product absorbed by the surface.  The characteristic appearance of the surface material is not or only slightly altered.


The durability depends on the care products used. Strong degreasing or layer forming products are unsuitable to use. Heavily used surfaces such as kitchen counters should be retreated once a year. Advice: Remove stain causing materials from impregnated surfaces immediately. For regular maintenance of kitchen counter tops we recommend Lithofin MN Easy-Clean. Storage Closed, cool and dry up to 3 years. Open containers should

be used without delay.

How to apply Lithofin MN Stain-Stop:

Pour product in basin or bucket.

Evenly apply the product twice, using a lambswool applicator or roller.

Distribute then completely remove excess product, streaks and puddles.

Allow to dry. Do not walk on surface for approx. 45 minutes.

Protect from water for 24 hours.

Warning: Do not allow any excess to dry out – any excess must be removed within 20min!
