Resin bound driveways and resin bonded driveways – what’s the
One of the first questions we are asked by customers is regarding the differences between a resin bound and resin bonded driveway. What they do have in common is there are no loose gravel stones due to the resin mixture, giving a premium appearance but without the trip hazards. You will also have a great selection of colours to choose from which makes finding the right tones extremely easy.
This is a popular choice, as a resin bound driveway is fully permeable. This reduces the risk of flooding and ensures any standing water can filter through.
The main benefits of installing a resin bound driveway are as follows:
- UV stability.
Even in bright, sunny weather, a resin bound driveway will not discolour or fade.
- Permeable material.
Water naturally filters through the system or out into a storm drain.
The solution makes it safer for to use the driveway throughout the year.
Another advantage of a resin bound driveway is that it also guarantees a Sustainable Drainage System (SuDS) is in place after installation.
A resin bonded driveway is not porous, which is the main difference between the two. This solution tends to be used in high traffic, commercial areas where there is lots of traffic.
If you make the decision to install a resin bonded driveway, you’ll also have the added advantages of:
- Stronger traction.
This type of resin provides excellent grip, making it very safe.
- Cost effective.
It doesn’t have the same benefits as resin bound, but comes in at a lower price.
- Quick install.
Around 2-3m2 of resin bonded surfacing can be laid per day.
The process of
installing a resin
Once an order has been confirmed, we arrive on site and require only a handful of materials to install the driveway:
We’ve perfected our installation process by using the following method:
For customers who wish to have a resin bound driveway installed, we place a tarmac base underneath to support the drainage system.
The team use a forced action mixer to blend in dried aggregates, before a final stage of mixing is completed in another 3-4 minutes.
We apply the resin by hand using a trowel to ensure an even and smooth finish.
The material then has to be left to cure for up to 6 hours. Once this has settled, the driveway can take foot traffic after 24 hours and vehicle traffic within 3-4 days.
