Currently only available in USA, MEXICO and CANADA

Ole-Repella™ is a high performance invisible and breathable sealer that protects natural stone, tiles, pavers, concrete and grout from stains to keep them looking good. HANAFINN Ole-Repella™ is a technological step forward from common penetrating sealers, providing a superior level of protection for a competitive price.

BENEFITS

  • Economical high performance sealer
  • Superior stain protection & longer lifespan
  • Invisible – so the look of the treated surface is maintained
  • Easy one-step application; makes cleaning easier
  • Breathable – allows water vapour to escape, helping to prevent damaging moisture buildup inside the treated material.
  • Suitable for indoor and outdoor use
  • Water based and ultra low VOC

 

Ole-Repella™ TECHNOLOGY

HANAFINN Ole-Repella™ is a technological step forward, providing a superior level of protection for a competitive price:

 

1) Deeper penetration = deeper barrier of protection

  • Ole-Repella’s sealing molecules are engineered to be much smaller for better penetration, even into dense materials such as granite.

 

2) Stronger bonding = longer lasting

  • Ole-Repella’s smaller molecules wedge themselves better into small nooks and crevices (better mechanical bonds).
  • The hydrophylic atoms which enable to molecule to adhere to the treated surface are better arrayed for superior adhesion.
  • These 2 factors give Ole-Repella™ a longer lifespan than common penetrating sealers.

 

3) Superior stain protection

  • Ole-Repella’s deeper protective barrier stops water travelling right up to the surface where it might cause visible damage.
  • Ole-Repella’s liquid repelling atoms are also arrayed for maximum repellence, providing superior stain protection.

TYPICAL APPLICATIONS

Ole-Repella™ is suitable to use indoors and outdoors for a wide variety of applociations, including floors, walls, building facades, swimming pool surrounds, patios, garages, countertops, kitchens and entertaining areas.

HOW TO USE

  1. TEST PRODUCT ON A SMALL AREA FIRST and allow a 24-hour cure time to determine the ease of application and desired results.
  2. Product is to be used without thinning
  3. Ensure surfaces to be treated are clean, dry and free of residues.
  4. Generously and evenly saturate the surface with Ole-Repella™ using a clean paint brush, micro-mesh cloth, roller or lamb’s wool applicator. A sprayer can be used for very absorbent (porous) surfaces. Avoid contact with surrounding areas. For very absorbent / porous surfaces, apply a second coat while the first coat is still wet.
  5. Allow the sealer to penetrate for 20-30 minutes, then thoroughly polish off any excess with clean, dry cloths/towels. The cloth can be moistened with Ole-Repella™ to ease polishing.
  6. Total application rate is approximately 1 quart per 20 to 100 sq.ft. or 1 litre per 2 to 10 square metres depending on surface absorption.
  7. Clean equipment with water.
  8. Ole-Repella™ WILL NOT PREVENT SURFACE ETCHING OR WEAR AND MAY LIGHTEN OR DARKEN SOME SURFACES.

PRECAUTIONS

  1. Do not take internally.
  2. Apply when surface temperature is between 5 – 35°C (40 – 95°F).
  3. Avoid mositure contact with the surface for six hours after application.
  4. Protect surrounding areas from over-spray.
  5. Keep away from drains, plants, water and soil.
  6. Wear suitable gloves, protective clothing, safety goggles and an mask during application.
  7. Avoid applying in windy conditions.
  8. Wash hands thoroughly after applying.

Natural Stone Sealing-The application of a penetrating sealer to exterior stonework

Posted onMarch 17, 2010

Natural Stone Sealing

The application of a penetrating sealer to exterior stonework, interior floors, walls, bench tops and vanities reduces the porosity and absorption of the stone to a level that allows a longer period of time to remove any spillage. There are many different types of penetrating sealers on the market, however they will differ mainly in how much protection they offer (measured in the time they will protect and the range of contaminates they will repel). The low cost products will measure protection in minutes against a small range of contaminants while the premium products will afford much greater protection (measured in hours) against a quite exhaustive range of contaminants.

  ww   re

We also specialise in the application of Topical “Surface” Sealers. These provide a protective barrier over natural stone. This means the sealer will take on the general wear damage associated with floors and entryways. Enhancing sealers are also a speciality, as shown in bottom left photograph.
