Mineral Shine is not a film forming acrylic, fluorochemical or solvent. It’s minerals. The minerals seal the pores of the surface, repel stains and add slip resistance.
The mineral film dries to a pH of 11.5 to 12 making it impossible for germs, bacteria, mold and mildew to grow on it’s surface. Not only does Mineral Shine make the surface safer and cleaner but it also eliminates the odor caused by germs, bacteria, mold and mildew.
Mineral Shine will seal almost any hard surface. Concrete, natural stone, synthetic surfaces like porcelain and ceramic, VCT, LVCT, terrazzo and more. Do not use on natural wood.
Mineral Shine is considered permanent, which means that you don’t have to strip it and reapply it. A Rejuvenator solution is applied and scrubbed in to restore the surface if it begins to wear in areas.
Mineral Shine can be applied to vertical surfaces, such as shower walls or kitchen walls to retard the growth of germs, bacteria, mold and mildew.
Mineral Shine will not make a matte surface shiny if you do not buff it, but it can be buffed for a shine if so desired. Even when buffed to a shine, it is still slip resistant. Mineral Shine buffing pads are available to purchase in addition to the Rejuvenator and the Protector solutions.
When used on a waxed VCT floor, all wax must be stripped off. Mineral Shine can be applied to guarded concrete and epoxy floors.
Mineral Shine is incredibly concentrated. Although coverage rates vary depending on the porosity of the surface, users have found tremendous savings in using the Rejuvenator and Protector solutions to maintain their floors and counter tops.
Here is an example of using Mineralshine as a total floor sealer on a ceramic floor.
Here is my own ceramic kitchen floor which I will clean using Mineralshine Rejuvenator/Primer, some degreaser and the Carpet Cleaner America CRB equiped with the optional shampoo tank to give my grout lines a deep scrubbing.
Apply the Mineralshine Protector evenly so that it won’t dry streaky. If you streak it, you’ll have to come behind and buff it.
The floor reflectivity will not be changed unless you put on a few coats and then buff it with diamond impregnated pads. In this case my wife and I like the matte finish look, so there was no polishing done.
Two coats of Mineralshine later…
My floor no has a permenant bacteriastatic coating on it. The mineral film is now a constant pH 11.5 to pH 12. This range of the pH scale makes it impossible for bacteria, germs, mold and viruses to grow and replicate.
Once a year I will clean the floor using the Mineralshine Rejuvenator to refresh the mineral flim. I no longer need to use the Protector on it.
