LimePath
EcoWalk UV

You are here:

LimePath EcoWalk UV is a combination of recycled rubber sourced from used vehicle tyres and natural aggregates bound together with a specially formulated aliphatic HDI polyurethane resin which will not deteriorate or become brittle when exposed to UV light when tested to BS EN ISO 16474-3 method A, FeRFA guidance notes 2020. LimePath EcoWalk UV was developed to be a SuDS compliant permeable resin bound system that provides environmental benefits as a surface for pedestrian and low vehicular traffic remaining Slip-resistant, Resistant to freeze-thaw, Decorative, Functional and Seamless.

The environmentally designed open matrix allows water to drain through to the base, eliminating water ponding and allowing water to drain to planted areas or land drains. The ‘No Binder’ system eliminates the need for macadam and/or concrete bases, reducing the impact of additionally sourced materials greatly reducing transportation and emission. Edgings created from brick, stone, timber or steel should be installed to retain and protect the LimePath EcoWalk UV System.

Resin & aggregate

LimePath EcoWalk UV system uses a UV resistant polyurethane resin and will not yellow on exposure to UV light. This is a more attractive option than some other types of resin which can yellow and dramatically alter the appearance of the finished surface. The resin is formulated using aliphatic HDI which will not deteriorate or become brittle when exposed to UV light when tested to BS EN ISO 16474-3 method A, FeRFA guidance notes 2020. The performance and appearance of the finished surface is dependent on the aggregate used (see Limegate Solutions LimePath EcoWalk UV mix blend swatch sheet for colour options). The LimePath EcoWalk UV System Aggregate blends have been designed to achieve strength, resilience, porosity and decoration.

Please Note:

Natural aggregates may contain small amounts of iron which can produce rust staining when exposed to air and water; standard LimePath UV Surfacing blends contain aggregates selected for infrequency of incidence of staining but iron may bepresent in any natural aggregate. The presence of iron cannot be identified before use and Limegate Solutions cannot accept responsibility for any loss or damage suffered as a result of staining.

Coverage

Coverage rates for individual blends can vary depending on depths which ideally are recommended from 35mm to 40mm. Please refer to the Limegate Solutions LimePath EcoWalk UV Mix Blend sheets. Coverage is based on application to a flat surface and will vary when applied to undulating surfaces, according to compaction. Please contact us if you have any queries.

Working times & temperatures

Working time is affected by temperature; at temperatures above the maximum recommended 25°C the pot life and working time may be insufficient to allow a wet edge to be maintained.
Do not therefore proceed when product and/or air temperature exceeds recommendations. The air temperature must be monitored during application and work should stop when the temperature exceeds recommendations. Care must be taken to keep materials as cool as possible in warm weather. At low temperatures 5°C and below the resin will not flow sufficiently to achieve a smooth finish and work should not proceed.

Substrate requirements

LimePath EcoWalk UV System is designed for foot traffic and occasional and infrequent maintenance vehicle traffic. The range of LimePath systems are not a road surface for heavy volumes of domestic or commercial traffic. Heavier vehicle traffic, including heavy impact and high point loading will damage the surface and may result in failure due to the destructive scuffing forces created by power steering (e.g. three point turns).

Site attendance

When on site Limegate Solutions representatives are if asked, able to give a general indication of the correct method of installing Limegate Solutions products. It is important to bear in mind that Limegate Solutions is a supplier and not an application contractor and it is therefore the responsibility of the approved contractor and their employer to ensure they are aware of the correct practices and procedures to ensure the correct installation of the product and that liability for its correct installation is with the contractor and not with Limegate Solutions Ltd.
