What is Resin Bound

A resin-bound surface is a mixture of aggregate stones and resin used to pave footpaths, driveways, etc. It is a permeable paving solution. It is a flexible surfacing material, so it is resistant to cracking.

What is the Process

During this process the Resin Bound material is cold mixed using a process that ensures every particle of ‘stone’ is completely encapsulated in a strong, clear resin. It is laid immediately onto a base, to create a smooth permeable finish. The finished depth of a resin bound paving surface varies between 12mm and 24mm – depending on the size and type of stone used and the application (e.g. driveway, pathways).


What can the resin bound be laid on?

Mc Keogh Landscapes normally lay the resin bound on an asphalt or concrete base. This acts as a structural layer. It can be installed on other bases if a traditional base is not appropriate, by increasing the depth of the resin bound layer itself.  New methods include using a recycled plastic grid structure where the area is to be used only for pedestrian and light vehicular traffic.
