Care and Maintenance
HMK R55 | Intensive Cleaner/Grout Film Remover
A superior pH 8.5 neutral cleaner for use on all new and existing interior and exterior natural and cast stone, agglomerate, and ceramic tile, regardless of surface finish. Especially formulated to remove cement/grout film residue, light construction dirt, soil, and light wax coats. Recommended for polished and honed surfaces since it does not contain acid and will not etch finishes. Use HMK¨ R80 for heavy wax removal.
HMK R63 | Concrete Film Remover For Professional Use Only
An extra strength, fast-acting, dilute acid type cleaner for all new and existing rough/textured interior and exterior natural and cast stone (use the milder HMK® R69 Interior Stone Cleaner if acid fumes are a concern). HMK® R63 thoroughly removes construction dirt, grout residue, lime deposit, efflorescence, and rust from all surfaces. Not for use on polished/glazed surfaces. Avoid contact with metal; acid/fumes will cause etching.
HMK S34 | Silicone Impregnator
A silicone base impregnator of highest stability against dirt, water, oil, and alkali infiltration. For interior and exterior use on all natural and cast stone and regardless of surface finish. Surface treated with HMK® S34 is 98% vapor permeable, UV resistant, and leaves a natural appearance. Not effective on non-absorbing surfaces.
HMK S42 | Exterior Color Enhancing Impregnator
HMK® S42 is a new, ready-to-use and solvent-based color- enhancing impregnator, mainly for exterior applications. By reducing water and dirt penetration, regular maintenance is facilitated. Algae, fungus and other problems occurring with exterior installations are reduced. Color enhancement will bring out the grain and structure of the stone. HMK® S42 is especially suited for wall and floor surfaces. Vapor permeation is only slightly diminished.
HMK P19 | Marble and Granite Polish
A modified silicone wax base conditioner and maintenance cleaner/polish/protector for interior (conditional exterior) use on floors, walls, and stairways for all polished mineral surfaces. HMK® P19 enhances the stone’s color and texture. It further protects against dirt and water infiltration and creates a high luster and slip retardant surface. P19 is also recommended for countertops, shower stalls, fireplaces, etc. It also protects impregnators, sealers, does not smear or scuff, and beautifully maintains brass, bronze, and aluminum.
HMK P21 | Polishing Paste
A modified silicone wax conditioner and maintenance cleaner/polish/protector for use on all interior (conditional exterior) polished mineral surfaces, agglomerate, and glazed ceramic tile. Especially indicated for use on counters, vanities, bar tops, windowsills, fireplaces, art objects, etc. Repeated use enhances the stone’s color and texture, and protects against dirt and water infiltration. HMK® P21 Polishing Paste does not yellow or cloud, is UV resistant, and is highly permeable. It also protects impregnators and sealers, does not smear, and beautifully maintains brass, bronze, and aluminum.
