Health & Safety
Ensure when preparing and installing Resiscape that full H&S procedures are adhered to. A full risk assessment of the project should be carried out before any work begins. Ensure you wear appropriate PPE including gloves and eye protection, especially when working with chemicals.
Preparing your area
Before laying the aggregate system the surface must be dry, weed and algae free. The stone and surface temperature should be at least 3 degrees above dew point. To calculate the dew point please refer to the chart below. If using the Resiscape Primer, please follow the instructions on the back of the tin.
You will need:
• 100ltr capacity forced action mixer as this is required to thoroughly mix the aggregate and resin together. These mixers are readily available on the market to purchase/hire.
• A plasterers paddle and drill for mixing both resin parts together
• Resiscape Spirit Cleaner & application tool. This is used to create the final finish and maintain the cleanliness of the tools throughout the installation.
• A wheelbarrow, trowel and tamping/levelling bars
It is not always possible for the aggregates to come from the same batch, therefor blending is always advised to reduce the risk of any colour batching.
