Advanced Microtechnology: The FILA Difference

At FILA Solutions, we are driven by an unyielding commitment to innovation, constantly pushing the boundaries of surface care technology. With over 80 years of accumulated expertise, this commitment has led to the creation of MICROTECHnology, a groundbreaking approach that results in significant outcomes at a microscopic scale.

Despite their breathtaking appearance, natural stone surfaces possess inherent porosity, housing microscopic pores invisible to the naked eye. This makes them vulnerable to water and dirt infiltration, resulting in unexpected stains and gradual deterioration. Leveraging micrometric particles, MICROTECHnology seamlessly penetrates the surface, adeptly filling these tiny voids to establish a robust protective shield.



Advantages of MICROTECHnology
  • Breathability – our technology ensures surfaces remain breathable without leaving any film or greasy residue.
  • Water Repellency – water beads on the surface prevent penetration into the stone and preserve its integrity.
  • Hygienic – by filling micropores, our protection reduces the potential for staining and odour-causing germs to accumulate.
  • Stain & Oil Resistance – stains and oil are kept on the surface, preventing infiltration into the material’s pores.
  • Eco-Friendly – we prioritise sustainability by using advanced materials with minimal environmental impact.
  • Impregnating – our UV-resistant, non-yellowing protection permeates the material, delivering lasting results.
  • Time and Cost Savings – our solutions optimise project investments by minimising maintenance, restoration, and reinstallation costs.



WET STONE ECO vs. WET ECO: Which is Right for You?

When it comes to surface care, choosing the right product is paramount. Let’s compare WET STONE ECO and WET ECO to help you make an informed decision:

WET STONE ECO is specifically formulated to enhance the appearance of rough-textured natural stone surfaces like split faces and tumbled and flamed stones. It provides a glossy finish while protecting against stains, dirt, and surface dust. It also acts as a surface consolidating agent and is suitable for interior and exterior use.

On the other hand, WET ECO, our colour-enhancing sealer, is designed for unpolished natural stones, agglomerates, and terracotta surfaces. It provides a wet effect while preventing stains and facilitating dirt removal. It is also suitable for interior and exterior applications. It boasts a formulation developed from organic raw materials and renewable resources, ensuring durability and environmental friendliness.



With our innovative products like WET STONE ECO and WET ECO, you can confidently specify surface care solutions, ensuring longevity and beauty. Our certifications, including the Indoor Air Comfort Gold certificate, also guarantee eco-friendly excellence:
