A luxury hotel, warm terracotta flooring and the perfect protection and finishing with Fila products for the Vincci Selección chain’s brand new Estrella Del Mar hotel complex in the heart of the Costa del Sol, just a few kilometers from Marbella. Terracotta, mainly supplied by San Genis, was used for the 7,500 m2 of floors in the rooms, corridors, balconies and communal areas. The material was treated in two separate phases: after installation, the terracotta was protected with water repellent FILAHP98 to simplify grouting, while post installation cleaning was executed with FILAPHZERO Strong Acid Cleaner and Descaler. In the next stage, the terracotta was protected against stains with FILAW68, a natural finish, water based sealer, applied on surfaces both indoors (rooms, bathrooms and corridors) and outdoors (terraces and balconies). Finally, protection of the indoor surfaces was completed with the application of FILAMATT Matte Finish Protective Wax, to maintain the material’s natural look.
