HMK M541 Home Care Kit has been specially developed for use on all natural and semi-natural stone surfaces such as kitchen counters, bathroom vanities, table and bar tops, windowsills, fire places, shower areas, and small entry ways. For use on all installations, new and old.
Instructions: 1. Step 1. Installation Clean Up and Surface Preparation with HMK R155 Intensive Cleaner. This step cleans the stone surface and opens the pores to allow for an easy and thorough penetration of HMK S234 Silicone Impregnator. HMK R155 is also perfect for periodic thorough cleaning. In case of new installation, do not perform step one until the setting bed and stone have had 5-7 days to cure and dry. Liberally apply HMK R155 at full strength with a non-abrasive sponge. Allow to sit for 5-10 minutes, but do not let dry. Agitate and brush with same sponge or suitable pad. Do not use common household nylon pads. Thoroughly rinse surface with clean water and allow to dry for at least 48 hours (very important) before moving on to the next step. 2. Step Two. Protection with HMK S234 Silicone Impregnator. This step will last for several years and will help to prevent dirt, water and oil from penetrating into the stone and leaving permanent stains. Protect all adjacent non-masonry surfaces. Apply HMK S234 generously and evenly to a chemically clean and dry surface with a natural bristle paint brush or the HMK® HMK Z951 brush. Two saturating, wet- on-wet applications are usually sufficient depending on porosity of the stone. Thoroughly remove excess product before drying on the surface. For more absorbent surfaces additional applications may be required. Subsequent applications may be done within fifteen minutes of the initial application, but it is best to wait 24 hours between applications to best determine saturation level. Smears or imperfections left after the application process can be removed using a soft clean cloth moistened with HMK S234 and buffing.HMK S234 will dry in 1-3 hours and fully cure within 48 hours. Do not use surface for food preparation or expose it to heavy traffic or spills while curing. Once fully cured, HMK S234 is not hazardous to your health. 3. Step 3. Maintenance with HMK P301 – 3 in 1 Spray Cleaner. HMK P301 is an exceptional product for quick and effortless removal of light dirt and grease – polishes and protects in one action. Easy to use… Just spray and wipe! Shake well before use. Spray HMK® P301 evenly onto the dry surface. Allow a short period of time (approx. 1-3 minutes) for the product to become effective then wipe or buff the area with a soft cloth or paper towel. When the surface is dry, buff with a dry cloth to bring up the polish. Suitable for use in food preparation areas.
