Activated by a solvent
    that dissolves the raw
    materials in it,
    Shield® is spread over
    the slab surface


    once the chemical reaction
    has taken place,
    the solvent is volatised


    the treatment is transformed
    into a compound, which is
    united with the stone,
    and makes the surface
    non absorbent

     

Shield® treatment
from the knowledge and experience of aerospace research, Shield® finishing guarantees the best protection against dirt and aggressive agents.
Shield® is a very thin layer of silica that is completely invisible and makes the surface non-absorbent and it is insoluble for most organic compounds and suitable for contact with food, and Shield® is a permanent treatment that is integrated in the surface.

absolute Shield® treatment
this is the perfect treatment for highly precious and delicate natural stone such as marble, slate and travertine where acidic and staining substances can damage the natural stone surface. This treatment protects the natural stone from the most common aggressive agents in foods, making the surface stain-resistant and of unrivalled practicality. Absolute Shield® is a permanent treatment that is integrated in the surface.
