Benefits of Resin Bound Surfacing:
Resin bound paving is an attractive weed-free resin bound surfacing system. It fuses natural natural aggregate, recycled materials and marble with resin to create a permeable, sustainable and longstanding paving stone. Resin bound paving can be used for driveways, patios, pool surrounds and garden pathways and steps.
If you have an existing Tarmac or Concrete driveway in good condition, it is possible to lay Resin Bound gravel over the top, meaning no need for excavation, saving you money!
What Exactly Is Resin Bound?
Resin bound surfacing, or ‘trowelled’ paving is made from a blend of aggregates coated with a clear UV-stable polyurethane resin. To ensure that each aggregate particle is completely coated in resin, the two elements are combined in a force-action mix process to form a cold-pour mixture. The mixture is then poured and hand-trowelled to form a smooth, colour-constant, accurate surface with no loose stones. It is recommended that a resin bound surface should be laid to a depth of 15mm for a pool surround, footpath or terrace and 18mm for a driveway and car park.
Resin bound surfacing is water-permeable when laid on a an open surface asphalt.
