Resin Bound Surfacing
In Partnership with
Resin Bound Surfacing for Paving and Hard Landscaping
Resin Bound Surfacing for Paving and Hard Landscaping works can provide useful solutions with attractive designs and durable surfacing, for many different hard landscaping areas, including pathways, driveways and almost unlimited bespoke design features. A particular benefit of resin bound surfacing is that it allows almost total freedom of design in terms of shape and colour, with the capability even include special images such as individuals creative artwork or company logos for example, and in other situations, for easy permanent delineation marking on area designations wherever appropriate.
By using our light and colour fast Resin Bound finishing mortars over a suitably consolidated structural base layer, the areas can be enhanced and made to match or contrast with surrounding paving or other hard landscaping surfaces, all according to the owner, Architect or Designer's specific requirements.
Resin Bound Surfacing Materials
There are basically two types of these resin bound systems supplied – Firstly those with a factory graded and pre-bagged aggregate mix included with the resin binder in a totally pre-batched unit. Alternatively the resin binder can be supplied seperately in bulk, ready to be mixed with a defined quantity of specially prepared kiln-dried aggregates, or blends of coloured aggregate and other materials. These additional mineral fillers can include different types and grades of coloured glass or other synthetic materials or natural elements such as small pebbles, for the creation of special effects and design solutions.
Generally extensive global research by Addagrip has shown that the best resin binders for externally exposed Resin Bound Surfacing are two-component Polyurethane resin based materials and particularly those selected for the advanced Addagrip range that produce, the most durable systems. These are predominantly solvent free, light fast, non-yellowing, tough and semi-flexible aliphatic polyurethane resin based materials, which have excellent adhesion to most natural and synthetic aggregates, concrete, mortar and even to asphaltic and bituminous surfaces. Additional specials means and catalysts are used by the NCC and Addagrip experts for special requirements and solutions.
Resin Bound Surfacing Application
Resin bound surfacing is mixed and installed directly onto firmly compacted ground with a nominal thickness of 100mm. This build-up generally consists of a minimum 60mm base layer that is produced with compacted sand and gravel chippings, or an MOT type-1 sub-base, which is followed by a nominal 30mm of the polyurethane resin binder and aggregate mix.
The edges are normally produced finished with a hard paved outer edging or by means of other rigid materials.
The resin bound top layer is produced by first mixing the two pre-batched components of the Addagrip resin binder with dust-free, graded, kiln-dried aggregates, or other selected and approved materials such as graded, coloured synthetic chips, natural small pebbles, or glass for example, in the colours of your choice for the area.
