Practical Consumption

Practical coverage depends on many factors such as porosity and roughness of the substrate and material losses during application.

Further application and technical instructions can be found on the product data sheet.

After application the coated surface becomes as hard and dense as ceramic tiles. Provides excellent protection against detergents, animal fats, water, brine and other harsh liquids as encountered in food plants. The smooth, tile-like finish is very suitable for daily cleaning and scrubbings.
