Though Steintec generally markets its Weiss cleaning and protection products to clean and protect natural stone paving outside, customers are reporting some great results on high-end kitchen worktops and even walls.

They're using Weiss FT Plus - a wet-look colour enhancer for natural stone and concrete paving, that also provides staining protection against marks made by grease, oils, fats, fast food...even tyre rubber and footwear though they're probably not found in most domestic kitchens.

"We sell most FT Plus for natural stone paving, but one or two of our customers have given it a try to protect their investment in expensive stone worktops and walls with great results. Others report it is also effective in taking the pain out of cleaning for things like grease and stains," said Troi Boorman, Weiss specialist. "They also seem to like the natural wet look, which they say, makes internal surfaces look clean and hygenic."

Steintec and Weiss have together come up with a comprehensive portfolio of high-performance solutions to deal successfully with most of the unavoidable cleaning and protection problems that can arise with stone. From the total protection of paving before or after it is laid, to the removal of stubborn dirt, chewing gum, soaked-in fast food and engine oils, natural green growth and algae, embedded rust spots, construction site staining from cement residues, and even the stripping of resin protection previously applied, there is a solution at hand.

Use of the appropriate cleaning and protection products, either alone, or sometimes one after the other, can result in an economical protection and cleaning regime and also make a very noticeable and sustainable improvement to the long-term appearance of natural stone products.

FT Plus is an excellent and effective product, though it does come with a caution: Even the slightest hint of damp in the stone it is applied to could lead to a whitish surface staining. Our recommendation is to purchase a sample and carry out a test in a discreet area before going ahead with any major job. Coverage is dependent on the porocity of the stone but typically, 1 litre will treat up to 20 m².

FT Plus bonds within the pores beneath the stone surface, forming a breathable, highly resilient sub-surface system which is resistant to staining and which reflects the light in a way that makes the surface appear the same as similar untreated paving would when wet. This popular product gives consistent, even and long-lasting results and is highly oil and water repellent.
