With a huge colour range achieved by a variety of graded aggregates, it is not hard to see why resin bound surfacing is becoming hugely popular! When resin Bound is laid over tarmac or a cellular grid system the surfaces are entirely permeable, meaning liquids such as rain water can flow through the surface and into the ground. A variety of aggregates, such as flint, quartize, marble and granite can be blended together to produce a unique and premium finish.
What is Resin Bound?
The process of installing resin bound involves mixing aggregates with resin binder in an action forced mixer. The mixture is then hand trowelled onto a solid sub base, and screeded smooth to produce an attractive and permeable covering.
What is the difference between resin bound and Resin bonded?
Resin Bound – the aggregates and the resin binder are mixed together in an action forced mixer. This enables each grain of the aggregate to be coated in the resin binder.
Resin Bonded – a layer of resin is applied to a surface, with aggregate then scattered along the top layer. The scattering of stone sets into the resin layer. This is a much faster process, but it is not as durable as the Resin bound system.
Can my existing surface be overlaid?
Some existing surfaces can be overlaid depending on the condition and the stability of the surface. We can conduct a free site survey to establish the suitability of any existing sub bases for a resin bound overlay. If a permeable area is required then the sub base would also need to be permeable (tarmac or cellular grid system).
