Surface care is an integral part of any building maintenance program- for the floors, walls, bathroom and kitchen tops, stairways, indoor and even outdoor setups. Dirt, rising damp where moisture from the ground travels up through the building structure, rust and acids, water, and even the sun's UV radiation- they are all a threat to the installations. Faber provides a wide range of solutions for the different aspects of building care. Whether you're a builder or architect installing and finishing a floor, homeowner in the middle of repairs and renovations, or a business owner looking to spruce up their establishment- there are solutions for you. Tilers, cleaning companies, the enthusiastic DIYer- you can get formulations that are quick and effective. The products developed address specific areas, ranging from stain removers for those stubborn spots, mastics plus epoxy systems for carrying out repairs, cleaning products to preserve the beauty and character of the various surface types, to finishing agents and waxes. With over 30 years of operations and expertise, and an international market that is constantly growing, you can rest assured that you'll be getting a value return for your money's worth by relying on Faber products. When it comes to dealing with the compact surfaces, turn to the Faber Deep Enhancer 5L. Here, its aim is to provide an effective treatment to enable these surfaces to withstand the barrage of abuse they receive on a daily basis, from both natural elements like the sun and human causes like the occasional food and drink spills, while also adding to the beauty of the installation.
Benefits Of The Faber Deep Enhancer 1L
Protects the surfaces
The solvent-based Faber Deep Enhancer 1L brings stain protection and water-repellency properties to the material, and simultaneously amps up the durability. The treatment provided protects the surface from the effects of UV radiation, and you won’t have to worry about yellowing on exposure to sunlight. This formulation can be used on both indoor and outdoor surfaces, even those in conditions that necessitate the need to withstand the continuous presence of water- like the shower and washbasin in the house, saunas in hotels, or fountain out in the park. This reduces your workload when it comes to the daily cleaning and maintenance of the surfaces.
Enhances the appeal of the material
The Faber Deep Enhancer 5L penetrates and bonds with the surface, and enhances its tone. That way, it doesn’t form a film on the surface. This emboldens the colour of the material, additionally providing a matt finish, boosting its aesthetic appeal.
Applicable on compact surfaces
This formulation has been specifically designed to work on compact surfaces, which typically have minimal absorption. It impregnates the material, allowing you to stain-proof it and effectively treat it. These are the likes of glazed and craquelé ceramics, lapped, textured and polished porcelain stoneware, quartz-resin agglomerates, molten basalt, and natural polished stones. It can also be used on granite, clinker, limestone, marble, marble-resin agglomerates and travertine. Whether the surface is brushed, polished, aged or has a compact superficial finish, the Faber Deep Enhancer 1L will be up to the task.
You won’t have to jump through hoops to get treat your natural stone surfaces with the Faber Deep Enhancer 5L. Simply clean the area you intend to work on, ensure the adjacent surfaces are protected, then proceed to apply the treatment in abundance. Note that it should never be applied onto damp or wet surfaces. Spread it out evenly, wait for 5-10 minute as it sets, then redistribute the excess to achieve an even coverage over the surface. The tools you use depend on your preference- it can be a brush, roller or even a lambswool applicator. Give it 20-30 minutes to penetrate into the surface, or even 45-60 for the more compact materials. This dwell time will also be a factor in determining the effectiveness of the treatment, the colour intensity that is obtained, plus the overall durability- hence it's recommended that you maximise on it by waiting close to an hour.
After this, remove all reduce and excess that remain. This is achieved by brushing the surface with a dry brush, opting for the standard floor polisher set at 175 rpm and with a 1.5 HP rating, that has a lambswool pad, white or even a wool-cotton attachment. For the vertical surfaces, worktops, and small areas, the residue can be removed using cloths such as those of wool-cotton or compact-felt material, or alternatively use an orbital wheel, that has a white disc or pad. Manual wheels can also be used. Within 1-2 hours after application, the Faber Deep Enhancer 1L treatment will have dried. When it comes to the floors, they will be ready to handle foot traffic in just 4-6 hours after the treatment.
When using it as a stain-proofing treatment for the surfaces onto which a water-repellent primer had been coated, first wait for it to dry before applying the Deep Enhancer. New installations, plus those that have grout, should also be allowed to cure completely before application of the treatment.
Easy to maintain
Cleaning surfaces treated with the Faber Deep Enhancer 1L is a breeze. In fact, there are complementary products from the same brand that are compatible with it, from ALGAFLOOR for the routine cleaning, to those formulated to tackle stubborn dirt like Faber 30 and DETERFUG, which are used depending on the type of dirt you’re dealing with. Regular maintenance keeps the treatment at its optimal, from the colour tone that has been set up, to preserving the durability that has been obtained.
The Faber Deep Enhancer 5L is suitably priced to give you a quality product without denting your wallet. You can get it in packages of 4 cans per box, which is especially beneficial when you’re working on expansive surface areas. Each unit product itself enables you to treat a wide area, with a coverage rate of 20-30m²/L. What's more, the protection that is provided for the surface preserves its structural integrity and enhances its durability, enabling it to avoid the effects of wear that would have otherwise resulted in deterioration- which would be costly to repair. This has the welcome benefit of reducing your building maintenance costs over the long term.
