New Concrete Floors: New concrete must be clean, sound, dry, fully cured and surface laitance removed by vacuum enclosed shot blasting or mechanical grinding. A minimum strength of 25N/mm sq. is required.
Existing Concrete Floors: Remove all dirt, oil, grease, old paint or any 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 and make sure all residue of detergent is washed and removed by rinsing with clean water. Local repairs should be carried out using Resupatch.
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 Resucoat Profile is applied to masonry/concrete surfaces, care must be taken to ensure that surface preparation is thorough but does not disfigure the surface.
Open and porous substrates may require priming with Resuseal WB, also Resuprime NT or Resucoat HB may be used as primer on the dry substrates only, with less than 75% ERH reading.
Where the relative humidity of a substrate exceeds 75% ERH, R.S. Dampshield 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 R.S.DAMPSHIELD at 200 microns per coat
85-92 2coats of R.S.DAMPSHIELD at 200 microns per coat
92-97 3coats of R.S.DAMPSHIELD at 200 microns per coat
For Further information please refer to recommended individual product data sheets.
The ambient temperatures of the areas should not be allowed to fall below 15°C throughout the application and the curing period, as this could have an adverse effect on the appearance and colour of the system. Surface temperature must be above 10°C. Where possible it is recommended that the application area is heated to a minimum temperature of 15°C ideally, to allow the ambient and substrate temperature to stabilise prior to installation.
Mixing: Pre-mix the coloured base component to a uniform consistency then mix the entire contents of the base with the hardener. If a separate mixing bucket is being used mix thoroughly ensuring all contents of the base and hardener are removed from the buckets supplied. Mix using a slow speed electric mixer for 1-2 minutes and add the Resucoat Profile aggregate whilst mixing. Continue to mix for a further 1-2 minutes to ensure the aggregate is fully dispersed.
The mixed unit should be applied immediately by roller or brush with a consistent procedure. Floor areas should be cross-rolled to ensure even application and to minimise roller marks.
