Resin bound driveways and resin bonded driveways – what’s the
When you are choosing a resin driveway, you will have two key choices: resin bound or resin bonded. Both are a premium type of material and are similar in appearance, designed to look like gravel in a variety of colours, but in a much safer way without the trip hazard of loose stones. You might also hear them being called gravel glue driveways or bound gravel driveways. However, the two have some fundamental differences when it comes to the performance you require.
Here are the key facts you need to know to help you in making your decision:
Resin-bound driveways are fully porous, which is why many homeowners choose this option. There will be no issues with standing water because the material allows for drainage and rain will not collect on the surface.
These are some of the reasons you might choose a resin bound driveway:
- UV stable.
The aggregate used will not fade in the sun.
Rain will drain away, so there is no standing water.
- Slip resistant.
Resin bound surfaces have a non-slip finish.
By being fully porous, your driveway will comply with government regulations for sustainable drainage systems, known as SuDS.
The main difference between resin bound and resin bonded is that resin bonded drives are not porous. You would generally opt for a resin bonded driveway in a high traffic area, where durability and safety are the main concerns.
These are some of the reasons you might choose a resin bonded driveway:
- High friction.
It’s a very safe surface and perfect for busy areas.
- Cost effective.
Installation is cheaper than a resin bound surface.
- Quicker to install.
We can lay around 2-3m2 per day.
The process of
installing a resin
A resin driveway is made up of:
Subgrade, and capping if required
This is what happens when we lay your new driveway:
We carry out any groundworks required, laying a tarmac base if you choose a resin bound driveway to ensure it is fully porous.
The resin is mixed in two parts, poured into a forced action mixer with dried aggregates and mixed for 3-4 minutes.
The mixture is spread out over the required area. It is applied by hand using a trowel to give an even finish.
The mixture takes 4-6 hours to cure. Typically, it can be walked on within 24 hours and driven on within 3-4 days.
