Resin Bound Aggregates

Resin bound aggregates are decorative aggregate granules and sands for resin bound and resin bonded surfacing systems. The dried range of natural aggregates features an extensive selection of colours and sizes which are combined with resin for commercial or domestic use. The wide range of colour shades available provide an excellent alternative to paving or tarmac, this means that they can blend into the surrounding area.

Decorative or coloured aggregates are bound or bonded by clear or coloured resin – this is coated over the existing surface when it is solid and unbroken. The resin bonds with the original surface to create a brand new surface.

Quality resin is resistant to petrol or oil spills. They will also not fade or discolour as they are UV resistant. In commercial use, they can be used to create company logos.

Resin bound gravel can be used in a large number of applications including car parks, footpaths, bus lanes and road markings. By utilising different colours, any number of patterns can be created.

Resin is also a practical choice for patios. A resin bound patio is suitable for all weather conditions, it will not fade in sunlight and is long-lasting and aesthetically pleasing.

It is also an anti-slip surface, which is great for tyre traction. It is quick and easy to install. Resin bound aggregate is SUDS compliant and is fully permeable when used in conjunction with a porous base and suitable. Due to environmental benefits, such as reducing the risk of flooding when used as a gravel driveway, the need for planning permission is almost always eliminated.

Why should you choose resin bound aggregates over block paving, concrete or tarmac?

The solution naturally drains water, better traction for cars and people, and is weed resistant. It is also low maintenance, long-lasting and does not fade or discolour.
