Kimia S.p.A.

Since 1979, Kimia has produced a complete range of products for building restoration, recovery and maintenance. With twenty years of specialization, it can offer truly dynamic products. In fact, Kimia is constantly updating its lines of products to respond promptly to new problems related to building recovery and restoration and to keep up with the technological progress being applied in the construction field. In addition, the reliability of Kimia products has been confirmed by the worst kind of test: the architectural heritage damaged by the earthquake in 1984 and consolidated with Kimia products was not touched in the least by the earthquakes that years later - starting in September of 1997 - once again violently struck the territory of Umbria and the Marches.

 

Kimistone KSF


Description

Strong consolidant based on silicic acid ethyl esters in alcoholic solvent. Under standard environmental conditions (+ 20 ° C, 50% UR) the final degree of consolidation is reached after approx. 2 weeks. The consolidating effect is assured by the hydrolysis of amorphous silica ethylsilicates, guaranteed by the use of suitable catalysts capable of determining the rate of reaction. It does not lead to chromatic, film, permeability reduction.


Use cases

It is applied on silicate matrix materials (serene stone, simon stone, golden stone, strong stone, stonemason, mulher moss, piasentine stone, stump, tuff, gneiss, trachitis, serpentine, gingiva, slate, beola, quartzites) and on artificial stone such as brick, cotto tile, lean shiny plaster and carbonate substrates.


Advantages

  • High consolidating capacity
  • Ethylsilicate content greater than 75%
  • High penetration capacity due to the type of solvent used
  • Use of low toxicity solvent
  • Presence of catalysts that regulate the reaction kinetics
  • No color changes after application
  • Does not form films
  • Low reduction of vapor permeability
