Resin bound or resin bonded what’s the difference?

The two materials: sound similar however there are major differences concerning the drainage, bases, and composition of these two surfaces.
Resin bound driveways: are permeable meaning that water simply drains through the surface
Resin bonded driveways: on the other hand are non permeable meaning that seperate drainage is needed in order to effectively drain the surface.
Resin bound driveways:  the aggregate gravel and resin compound are mixed together and then laid on a prepared base.
Resin bonded driveways: resin is laid directly onto the base the gravel is then spread or broadcasted on top of the resin.

Resin bonded driveways Ashford Kent

One benefit of this system is the fact that existing tarmac or concrete pathways or patios can be used as a base for resin bonded driveways this is provided the existing surface has been fully cleaned all traces of oil weeds and any other containment will need to be completely eradicated from the existing surface.

Before laying any cracks in the existing surface must also be repaired to achieve the best possible results if the existing surface is in any way porous a primer will also need to be applied. Any existing surface with joins such as traditional block paving is not deemed as a suitable base.

Once the preparation process has been completed G Mackett Construction & Groundwork Ltd can begin the process of mixing the Resin that is to be laid on the prepared surface when ready the self leveling resin is applied after 10 minutes the resin will have self leveled and the aggregate can be added or (broadcasted)
