Resiguard is a two pack, epoxy resin floor coating. It is low viscosity which makes it user friendly and easier to work with. It is an economical, hard wearing product with a gloss finish. It is ideal for environments that come under attack from chemicals, high temperatures or aggressive cleaning. This makes it suited to both industrial and commercial installations including food and drink, pharmaceutical, warehouses, factories, workshops, car showrooms and packing and storage areas. This coating will stand the test of time even in heavy traffic areas.

Pack Size

10 x 10kg packs each comprising resin and hardener components. 

Benefits

  • Protects concrete, timber and steel from oil and chemical spillages
  • Virtually solvent free
  • Leaves a Non Dusting surface
  • Easy to apply low viscosity coating
  • Hygienic seamless finish & easy to clean
  • Gloss finish
  • Excellent order of resistance to a range of chemicals

Suitable Substrates

Concrete, timber and polymer modified cementitious screeds.

Coverage

100kg pack will cover up to 400 m² in two coats.

Thickness

Approximately 200 microns from two coats.

Usage

Indoor, light to medium duty areas.

Typical Properties, 28 days @ 20 ºC

BS 8204-6 Type 2

Adhesion to concrete (BS EN 1504-2) > 1.5 MPa (concrete failure)

The typical physical properties given above are derived from testing in a controlled laboratory environment. Results derived from testing fieldapplied samples may vary dependent upon site conditions.

Cure Schedule @ 20 ºC

Working life of full packs* - 25 minutes

* Usable working life of material following mixing and immediate spreading as per the application instructions.

  • Over coating time: 16 - 36 hours
  • Cure time to pedestrian traffic: 24 - 36 hours
  • Cure time to vehicular traffic: 48 hours
  • Full chemical resistance: 7 days

The floor should be protected from contact with water for at least 7 days. * The above cure times are approximate and given as a guide only.



Application Conditions:

Do not apply outside of the range 10 °C to 25 °C. Localised heating or cooling equipment may be required outside this range to achieve ideal temperature conditions. To reduce the risk of “blooming” caused by condensation, the climate above the uncured floor should be maintained at least 3°C above the dew point for at least 48 hours after application.

The ambient temperature of the works area should be a minimum of 15°C. Localised heating or cooling equipment may be required outside this range during the application and curing period, if not adhered to this can affect the colour and appearance of the system. Materials and substrate temperature must be above 10°C.

Surface Preparation:

Concrete: Concrete substrates must be a minimum of 28 days old, dry, clean and free of surface laitance and contaminants such as dirt, oil, grease, poorly bonded coatings and surface treatments. Inadequate preparation will lead to loss of adhesion and failure. In coatings, there is a tendency for the finish to mirror imperfections in the substrate. Grinding, or light vacuum-contained shot-blasting is therefore preferred over planing for these systems. Concrete must include a functional damp-proof membrane. Oil and Grease: For large areas of contamination, use hot compressed air treatment. Small, isolated contamination should be removed using an appropriate degreaser, rinsed thoroughly and allowed to completely dry. A coat of Flowprime OT should then be applied (see separate datasheet).

Mixing:

Materials should be stored at 15 ºC to 25 ºC for a minimum of 8 hours prior to use. Pre-mix the coloured resin component before use. 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. 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.

Important: Both liquids are pre-weighed and designed to be mixed together in their entirety. It is essential that the full amounts are mixed together and until homogenous to ensure the product cures correctly and to the desired finish.

Application:

Best results are obtained in warm conditions (minimum 15 ºC). Apply with a medium pile simulated sheepskin roller working well into the surface taking care not to exceed the coverage rate. Edges and difficult to reach areas may be applied thinly by brush.

An anti-slip finish may be achieved by fully sprinkling the first coat with 0.3 - 0.6 mm kiln dried silica sand at 2 - 4 kg/m² . Allow the first coat to fully cure (24 hours at 15 ºC or longer in colder temperatures) then remove all excess sand with a stiff broom and vacuum and apply a second coat to encapsulate the grains. Coverage rate will depend on surface profile but will be greater than for the first coat.
