Resutile is a high performance, two pack polyurethane floor coating which is designed to provide excellent chemical resistance and light fastness. It is a hard wearing and tough but flexible coating with very good resistance to impact, abrasion and high temperature. Resutile is regularly used in the aviation industry due to its excellent resistance to Skydrol.
Resin Surfaces Limited have over 20 years of experience in the Aerospace industry, and Resutile is the coating applied to these high-traffic areas.
It is resistant to engineering lubricants such as Hyjet and Skydrol. Resutile can be found at some of the UK's largest airports in baggage halls, cargo terminals and aircraft hangars, including London Heathrow, Manchester, Leeds Bradford, Gatwick and Luton.
With its anti-slip properties, it is also excellent for fire stations, production lines and any other vehicular areas.
- Aircraft hangars
- Prisons and police cells
- Chemical plants
- Pharmaceutical areas
- Medical and Healthcare
- Anti-slip finishes
- Graffiti removal
Resutile is available clear (Resutile Clear - available separately) or in a range of colours (Resutile ST) below, as well as over 450 RAL and BS colours:

New Concrete Floors: New concrete must be clean, sound, dry and fully cured and surface laitance removed by vacuum enclosed shot blasting or mechanical grinding, a minimum strength of 25N/mm² is required.
Timber Floors: Must be clean, sound and dry. Old clear varnish/topcoat must be removed/sanded prior to application, as it may affect the inter- coat adhesion with Resutile.
Existing Concrete Floors: Remove all dirt, oil, grease, old paints or any or other surface contaminants by vacuum enclosed shot blasting, scarifying or mechanical grinding. Fats, oils or greases must be removed by mechanical means and detergent washing. Local repairs should be carried out using Resuscreed PA or Resuscreed 45.
Existing Floors (previously coated): All previous coatings and loose floor paints must be removed by mechanical preparation as described in the above section and primed as specified. If the old resin flooring cannot be removed, then please consult with our technical team for advice on intercoat adhesion and suitability, as it may not be compatible with existing floor coating.
Where Resutile is applied to masonry/concrete surfaces, care must be taken to ensure that surface preparation is thorough but does not disfigure the surface. Where surfaces are found to be porous a primer coat may be required to achieve a uniform sealed surface.
Resutile may be applied direct to concrete or as a seal coat or top coat to a resin floor system specified in our datasheets where a primer is not required. When applied direct to porous substrates the surface may require priming. Dry surfaces may be primed with Resuseal WB Clear or Resuprime ST.
Where the relative humidity of the substrate exceeds 75%, Resuprime MVT should be specified and selected on the basis of hygrometer readings in accordance with BS 8203.
The number of coats to be applied is chosen in accordance with the following table.
ERH% Required Coating Thickness
75-85 1coat of Resuprime MVT at 200 microns per coat
85-92 2coats of Resuprime MVT at 200 microns per coat
92-97 3coats of Resuprime MVT at 200 microns per coat
The ambient temperatures of the area should not be allowed to fall below 10°c throughout application and curing. Surface temperature must be above 5°c.
Mixing: Pre-mix the base component to a uniform consistency then add the entire contents of the hardener to the base and mix by using a slow speed hand held powered mixer and mixing paddle for approximately two to three minutes to achieve consistent mixture.
Note: Do not use a separate mixing bucket as it may affect the mixing ratio.
Apply the whole mixed paint by using spreading rake, roller and brush to achieve the maximum coverage within the specified pot life time frame.
Do not add solvent to this product.
Slip resistance can be improved by lightly broadcasting anti slip aggregates on the first coat (after primer) whilst still wet and back rolling, at a rate of 50/100 g/m² . When cured apply the second Resutile coat to secure the aggregates. Alternatively, one pack of R.S. Beadgrip can be added to each pack of Resutile to achieve a fine non-slip texture.
