Resin bound driveways and resin bonded driveways – what’s the
If you are just learning about resin driveways, it is important to know there are two different types available: resin bound or resin bonded. Both are similar in appearance – you can choose the perfect colour to suit the architecture of your property from a wide selection. Most importantly, because both materials do not feature loose gravel stones, it significantly reduces the likelihood of anyone tripping.
Although these two durable materials look almost identical once installed, there are also some key differences to take note of:
The porous nature of resin-bound driveways is seen as a huge plus by many homeowners. In practice this means you will never see any standing water on the surface as it will always be drained by the material.
To understand why resin bound driveways are so popular, here are a few more key advantages.
- UV stability.
No matter how long it is exposed to direct sunlight it will not fade.
- Porous material.
You never have to worry about puddles or standing water as it drains away.
Even in the wettest conditions the anti-slip technology always keeps you safe.
Installing a resin-bound driveway will also ensure you own a Sustainable Drainage System (SuDS), meeting industry standards.
While a resin bound driveway will always drain away rainwater from the surface, resin bonded driveways are not porous. In the vast majority of cases resin bonded driveways are used in spaces that experience high traffic levels, their durability helping to increase safety.
Before you install a resin bonded driveway you should always consider the following:
- High friction.
If you live in a high traffic area this is the best material to choose.
- Lower costs.
A great way to save money if you are working to a tight budget.
- Fast installation.
We can lay down anywhere between 2-3m2 per day.
The process of
installing a resin
Resin driveways are usually made up of the following:
In order to install a professional resin driveway, we follow this procedure:
A tarmac base is laid down for customers who are having a resin bound driveway, as this makes it completely porous.
In order to mix the resin successfully, there are two stages to complete. After going into a forced action mixer with dried aggregates, the resin is then thoroughly mixed for 3-4 minutes.
The next step involves laying the mixture onto the driveway. We do this manually using a trowel to guarantee a smooth finish.
The resin has to be left to cure for 4-6 hours. Usually, homeowners can walk across it within 24 hours and drive vehicles onto the material after 3-4 days.
