Oh dear! My patio is going green! Don’t worry, ALGEX is here…
If you want to keep your patio looking fresh, here is a product that will help to keep the algae away!
ALGEX is a water-soluble cleaning concentrate based on high quality surfactants. The product is neutral and free of chlorine and acid.
Self-actingly removes all kinds of common and environmental dirt caused by plants and trees. Slippery green deposits can also be removed. Due to its characteristics, Lithofin ALGEX also has a preventive effect, keeping surfaces clear of new green deposits for up to one year.
Field of Use
For cleaning all outdoor areas, such as stairs, patio paving, paths and terraces, walls, grave stones, roofs, wooden fences, etc. Ideally suited for preventive treatment against green, slippery deposits.
Directions for Use
Lithofin ALGEX should be diluted with water approx. 1:10 (when used as a preventive treatment 1:20) and distributed on the surface using a watering-can or a sprayer. After application, the areas should not be rained on for at least 4 hours. The surfaces will become bright, clean and free of deposits within a few days. Surface residues can be washed off with water or they will disappear when it rains.
Please Note: Lithofin ALGEX is not harmful for plants, however, they should not be sprayed or should be washed off immediately.
Coverage: approx. 20 to 50m² when using a watering-can; up to 150m² when using a sprayer.
In case of stubborn dirt, if the deposits have turned black, clean the surface with Lithofin MN Outdoor Cleaner. Spray Lithofin ALGEX as a preventive treatment a few days after cleaning. Repeat this preventive treatment once a year to maintain the areas appearance year-round. Impregnating the surface with Lithofin SPLASH-STOP will render it resistant to the penetration of water, thereby greatly reducing the risk of dirt accumulation and algea formation.
