HMK® S741
Stone Hardener

For interior and exterior use on weather beaten, crumbly and worn-out sandstone and other soft, highly absorbent mineral surfaces. Surface treated with HMK® S741 remains 100% vapor permeable, UV resistant, and leaves a natural appearance. Not effective on marble and most limestone.

The stone must have no less than a 5% absorption and be at least 3/4 inch thick. Temperature must between 40-75 F.

All loose layers, crusts and particles must be removed prior to application of the S741 because they can not be re-bonded. Apply to a clean and dry surface with HMK® Z170-171 Sealing Brushes, a natural bristle brush, or roller. Several, wet on wet, applications should be made until complete saturation is achieved. Protect the surface from rain and heavy sunlight for one week to allow humidity to successfully polymerize S741 into (SiO3) Quartz. Complete hardening is achieved 2-3 weeks after application. Impregnation with HMK® S31 Silane Impregnator is recommended because hardening process does not provide protection against water and dirt.

Depends on surface, 1-5 liters per 11 sqft. (1 square meter)
