The Resiscape accessories are all designed to aid simple installation. We have a primer for prepping a concrete base, an accelerator to increase cure times and a spirit cleaner to clean tools and equipment.
Resiscape Primer is recommended when installing onto a concrete surface creating a stronger bond between the resin and the sub-base. Each 5kg tin covers around 30m2 and can be applied using a decorator’s roller brush.
The Resiscape Spirit Cleaner is designed for use during the installation of resin bound systems. The cleaner can be used to clean the trowel used for installation as well as the forced action mixer, to prevent the resin/aggregate mix from sticking to these tools and curing.
We recommend installers regularly clean the mixer and trowel during installation to aid application.
Top Tip: For a very even finish, apply the Resiscape Spirit Cleaner to the trowel and smooth over the laid surface.
Resiscape Crushed Glass can be used during installation to provide extra anti-slip to the surface.
The glass must be scattered over the tacky surface sparingly, to avoid any patches of glass which could then affect the colour of the installation.
When scattered sparingly a 6.5kg bag can cover approximately 13m2.
The Resiscape Accelerator can be used to speed up the curing time of the laid system if the air temperature is cooler than 20°C.
The table below shows how much accelerator needs to be added to the mixture to achieve a curing time of 24 hours. If the accelerator is not used, it can take longer than 24 hours for the system to fully cure in cooler temperatures.
|Air Temperature (°C)||Resiscape Accelerator Addition Ratio|
|20°||Accelerator not necessary|
|17.5°||4.4ml per 6.5kg bucket/4m2 Kit|
|15°||9.8ml per 6.5kg bucket/4m2 Kit|
|12.5°||16.6ml per 6.5kg bucket/4m2 Kit|
|10°||29.3ml per 6.5kg bucket/4m2 Kit|
