Resin bound or resin bonded?

The difference between resin bound and resin bonded surfacing

Resin Bonded Gravel

  • You apply resin bonded aggregates in a “scatter coat” method.
  • It is creating by spreading a layer of resin across the surface and then scattering the aggregates on top.
  • Resin bond aggregates mimics the appearance of loose gravel.
  • Only the bottom of the aggregates will stick to the resin and any extra loose gravel can be removed if required once the resin has set.
  • It is not permeable.
  • Resin bonded aggregates will achieve a hard surface but the top layer of aggregate is subject to exposure and therefore wearing.
  • Only suitable for light foot traffic such as footpaths.

Resin Bound Gravel

  • Created by mixing aggregates and resin in forced action mixer to fully coat the aggregates in the resin.
  • Hand troweling and compressing the resin bound aggregates on to a suitable, solid base creates a stunning smooth and seamless finish with no loose gravel.
  • Resin bound surfaces require no planning permission.
  • The are permeable and porous, allowing water to drain through. It is SuDS complaint.
  • Resin bound gravel is hard wearing, durable and long lasting.
  • Suitable for driveways, paths, patios and landscapes.
