What is a Resin Bound Surface?
A resin bound surface is a mixture of aggregate stones and resin used to pave footpaths, patios and driveways. An attractive and durable paving solution, it is a permeable and flexible surfacing material, so it is resistant to cracking.
What is the 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. The mixture is laid immediately onto a prepared 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 function of the surface (e.g. driveway, pathways).
What can the resin bound surface be laid on?
At McKeogh Landscapes, we normally lay the resin bound surface on an asphalt or concrete base. This acts as a structural layer. However, we can install it on other surfaces 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.
