Flowseal PC Coloured - Polyurethane Sealer
Vendor: Virtus Resins
Flowseal PC is a two-component flexible but abrasion resistant polyurethane floor seal.
Available in coloured gloss or silk finishes. Flowseal PC is not 100% colour fast and may yellow over time. The rate of change will depend on UV light and heat levels and cannot be predicted. This does not compromise the product’s performance.
The surface to be coated must be clean, dry and free from oil, grease and loose material or any other contamination that may impair adhesion or wetting out. In coatings, there is a tendency for the finish to mirror imperfections in the substrate. For concrete substrates, grinding or light vacuum contained shot-blasting is therefore preferred over planing for these systems.
A minimum of two coats are required. Additional coats may be required depending on the nature of the substrate and the end use. Average Substrate: 7-9 m² per kg per coat. Porous/uneven substrates: 5-7 m² per kg per coat.
At 20 degrees, cure time for pedestrian traffic is 16 hours and full cure is 7 days.
Flowseal PC can be easily cleaned using industry standard cleaning chemicals and techniques designed for epoxy resin flooring. Test cleaning agents prior to use.Do not steam clean or subject to temperatures in excess of 50 degrees.
Approximately 50 to 90 microns dry film thickness per coat depending on substrate profile/porosity and application rate.
No primer required, first coat will act as a primer coat.
Flowseal PC contains solvents and should only be used in well ventilated areas. The maximum substrate and atmospheric relative humidity should be 75%. For best results, substrate and air temperature should be in the range 15 °C to 25 °C. The material can be applied at temperatures as low as 5 °C but lower temperatures will reduce coverage, make application more difficult and extend cure times. The climate above the uncured floor should be maintained at least 3 °C above the dew point for at least 48 hours after application.
Flowseal PC does not usually require a primer but on well compacted non-porous concrete, an addition of 20% Flowsolve is recommended to assist penetration of the first coat.
Add the hardener component to the coloured resin component and mix using a low speed electric mixer (200 - 500 rpm) for at least 3 minutes until homogeneous. Keep the mixing head fully submerged to avoid air entrainment. Use a spatula to scrape the sides and bottom of the mixing vessel several times as unmixed material will result in uncured patches in the final finish.
Apply with a medium pile simulated sheepskin roller working well into the surface. Edges and difficult to reach areas may be applied thinly by brush. Plan the work area to maintain a wet edge and work within the working time of the material. Avoid pooling the material as this will lead to soft spots.
Limitations: Do not proceed with application if atmospheric relative humidity is, or is anticipated to be >75% or if the surface temperature is <3 ºC above the dew point. Application should not commence when the substrate temperature or the ambient temperature is, or is anticipated to be <10 ºC during the application or within the curing period.
