WHAT IS A RESIN BOUND DRIVEWAY?
A resin bound driveway is considered a hard-wearing surface option, created through a clear, high-quality UV stable polyurethane resin combined with a blend of natural aggregate. It is then trowelled down to a smooth finish, similar to a screed and provides strength and functionality, especially when mixed with an existing solid base such as asphalt or concrete. In addition to durability, it also offers a welcoming, gravelly appearance, while they are not advisable for industrial use, resin bound driveways are often seen on domestic properties or residential developments.
RESIN BOUND APPLICATION
Using a 110V drill and paddle mixer, the resin and hardener are combined together which is then mixed with the selected aggregate blend, including the necessary fines and sand in a specialised large Forced Action Mixer. After that, the materials are poured into a wheelbarrow and flatly trowelled down onto the prepared surface.
The purpose of the sand in the mixture is to increase the structural strength of the resin surface whilst also providing anti-slip properties. If you require an extra grip, a light layer of glass grit can be drizzled on top of the surface before the resin has cured.
WHAT ARE THE ADVANTAGES?
In addition to its strength and functionality, a resin bound driveway is also fully UV stable, avoiding the unlikely appearance of a yellowing and patchy effect on shaded areas just weeks after being installed. What’s more, resin bound driveways only need rainwater and a light pressure wash to get rid of any build up of algae or dirt contamination to keep it clean. Compared with conventional surfacing solutions a resin bound driveway is environmentally-friendly due to its porous nature.
