Description

We no longer stock this product, but can recommend RSL Epo-Flex FX as a great alternative.

Resuflor FX is ideal for large timber floors, mezzanine floors or steel decking which can often expect movement. Like the Resutop range it is very hard-wearing, dealing with chemicals, abrasion, and user-friendly when it comes to maintaining. 

It is decorative, self-smoothing and comes in an array of colours, making it both practical and aesthetically apt for a nightclub, or perhaps a domestic studio. Its durability and easy-to-clean complexion means it is also suitable for shopping outlets and commercial stores.

Recommended Uses

  • Buildings with plywood or chipboard flooring
  • Television studios
  • Mezzanine areas both domestic and commercial
  • Printing and packaging warehouses

Preparation

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 over-coating other systems such as epoxy coatings or screeds, as part of a specified composite system in the data sheets, please follow the recoat time as stated in the individual data sheets, the coating in each stage should be tack free, but not fully cured. If fully cured, then mechanical preparation is required to ensure intercoat adhesion.

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 Resuflor FX.

Priming

Open and porous substrates will require priming with Resuprime NT on dry substrates only with less than 75% ERH reading. Where the relative humidity of a substrate exceeds 75% ERH, R.S. Dampshield or R.S. Dampshield FH 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 or DAMPSHIELD FH at 200 microns per coat
85-92 2coats of R.S.DAMPSHIELD or DAMPSHIELD FH at 200 microns per coat
92-97 3coats of R.S.DAMPSHIELD or DAMPSHIELD FH at 200 microns per coat For

Further information please refer to recommended individual product data sheets.

Application

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 component (base) to a uniform colour, then mix the entire contents of base with the hardener. If a separate mixing bucket is being used ensure all contents of both components are removed from the buckets supplied. Mix using a slow speed electric mixer for approximately one to two minutes until the two components have fully combined then add the aggregate slowly.

Mix for a further 1-2 minutes until the aggregate has fully combined and there are no lumps. The mixed unit should be applied immediately.

Resuflor FX should be worked with a trowel or float to achieve an even smooth finish. This is best achieved by the application of smooth even pressure with the compound poured over the correct coverage rate after fixing the stop ends to control the flow of the material. Then roll the area with a spiked roller to achieve an even smooth surface and remove entrapped air. Do not re-roll the area later than 15-20 mins.

The surface should be protected from temperatures of less than 10°C and moisture in the early stages of cure. This could adversely affect the flow, levelling and surface finish of Resuflor FX.
