Resin bound driveways and resin bonded driveways – what’s the
Both resins bound and resin bonded driveways come in a range of colours, and there are no loose stones, making them safe surfaces to walk on. However, there are also some important differences to understand when making a decision.
Resin bound driveways are laid onto tarmac, making them fully porous and allowing water to drain away completely – this means no dangerous standing water, that could freeze over or damage your driveway over time.
Why should you consider installing a resin bound driveway?
- UV stability.
Colour tone remains over time and isn’t faded by UV rays.
- Permeable surface.
A natural drainage system removes standing water.
The material is smooth and accessible, yet still has great grip.
By installing a resin bound driveway you also get a Sustainable Drainage System (SuDS), which is an excellent long-term drainage solution.
Resin bonded driveways are a non-permeable solution, meaning it will not drain away rainwater. This is a tougher material, so will often be used in commercial and high-traffic areas.
These are some of the benefits:
- Stronger grip.
High traction on the surface makes it an excellent safety surface.
- Value for money.
Resin bonded driveways are less expensive to purchase and install.
- Fast installation.
You can have your new driveway in place quickly, as 2-3m2 can be laid per day.
The process of
installing a resin
This is what is required for your resin driveway:
Subgrade, and capping (this is optional)
Our tried and tested method of installing a resin driveway follows this method:
Before the resin can be laid, a tarmac base is installed (this only applies to resin bound driveways).
The resin and aggregates are combined, then are mixed together for 3-4 minutes.
Using a trowel, the solution is then evenly spread across the driveway by hand to achieve the best finish.
Only once uniform coverage has been achieved can we then leave it to cure for 4-6 hours. 24 hours later it is usually fine to walk across, before cars and vehicles can use it 3-4 days later.
