Resin bound driveways and resin bonded driveways – what’s the
When it comes to choosing a new resin driveway, there are two types to choose from: either resin bonded or resin bound. These superior materials look similar when laid onto the driveway and their gravel-like appearance can be purchased in a range of colours. However, these are far safer options compared to gravel as there are no loose stones, making it far less likely that you will trip and fall. Sometimes they are referred to as bound gravel driveways. The important thing to remember is there are some key differences in terms of the high level of performance you expect.
To help you make a more informed decision, here are some important facts to remember:
One of the main reasons homeowners tend to choose resin-bound driveways is because they are completely porous. This means there is never any standing water as it drains into the material, removing it from the surface.
Here are a few reasons why more homeowners than ever are investing in a resin bound driveway:
- UV stable.
The manufacturing process ensures it will not fade in sunlight.
Rainwater drains into the material, ensuring no standing water remains.
- Slip resistant.
All of our resin bound driveways feature a non-slip finish.
Resin-bound driveways are classed as Sustainable Drainage Systems (SuDS), so when you install one, you will have a fully porous driveway that will comply with regulations.
Resin bonded driveways are not porous like resin bound surfacing. Resin bonded driveways are usually installed in areas of high traffic, where the main concerns are centred on safety and durability.
Here are a few things to consider before investing in a resin bonded driveway:
- High friction.
Resin bonded driveways provide a secure surface ideal for busy locations.
- Cost effective.
A cheaper option compared to resin bound.
- Quicker to install.
As much as 2-3m2 per day can be laid.
The process of
installing a resin
Resin driveways typically consist of:
This is the process of laying a new driveway:
If required, groundworks are carried out, which involves installing a tarmac base for anyone who has chosen a resin bound driveway, making it fully porous.
There are two stages involved in mixing the resin. Firstly it goes into a forced action mixer along with dried aggregates, before being mixed for 3-4 minutes.
We then spread the mixture across the driveway area. We do this by hand while using a trowel to ensure a completely even finish.
It is then left for 4-6 hours to allow it to cure. In most cases it can be walked on within as little as 24 hours, and driven on within 3-4 days.
