Resucoat GC Seal is a two-pack epoxy resin system designed as a surface coating for Resuscreed 55, Resuscreed 45 and Decora MS. This thixotropic coating is worked into the surface of open textured resin screeds, and fills all interstices, small voids and pockets in the surface, improving the resistance to chemicals, water spillage and offering improved cleanability.
The surface to be treated with Resucoat GC must be clean, sound, dry and fully cured.
Rates of coverage will be affected by the particle size and the density of packing achieved during the application of the screed. Open textures will reduce rates of coverage significantly.
The ambient temperatures of the areas should not be allowed to fall below 15oC throughout the application and the curing period, as this could have an adverse effect on the appearance of the system.
Surface temperature must be above 10oC.
Where possible it is recommended that the application area is heated to a minimum temperature of 15oC ideally to allow the ambient and substrate temperature to stabilise prior to installation.
Pre-mix the 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 both components are removed from the buckets supplied. Mix using a slow speed electric mixer for approximately two minutes or until the two components have fully combined.
Resucoat GC is highly thixotropic, careful and thorough mixing is required. For trowel and squeegee application denibbing of the surface by steel trowel is recommended prior to application.
Resucoat GC should be applied within 48 hrs of the application of the screed system. Apply to the clean surface with a polypropylene squeegee. Ensure that the Resucoat GC is forced into the surface of the resin screed and pull down any excess to leave a thin coating.
Finally roller off to achieve an even film finish. Resucoat GC does not tend to flow therefore it is important to ensure that the finish is to an acceptable standard whilst wet. When Resucoat GC is being used on coloured systems after overnight cure, apply a coat of Resucoat HB to provide a wearing finish.
When Resucoat GC is being used on decorative systems after overnight cure, apply a coat of Resutop Clear to provide a wearing finish.

APPLICATION INFORMATION at 20oC
5 Kg. will cover 12m2
at 360 microns DFT.
*Coverage rate is calculated based on a sealed and smooth surface and will vary based on application due to this product being used on porous surfaces.
Pot Life Approx. 25-30 Minutes from mixing, based on 5kg pack at 20°C.
*The pot life may be shorter for larger pack sizes.
Note: All mixed paint must be used within the pot life time limit. if the paint left in the container after mixing and not used, it may release hazardous fumes due to exothermic reaction.
Recoating Intervals 8-10 hours or once surface has lost tackiness
Light Traffic 8-12 hours
Full Traffic 24-36 hours
Full Chemical Cure 7 Days
