What is the difference between resin ‘bound’ and resin ‘bonded’ surfacing?
Resin bound paving provides a water-permeable surface when laid on a an open grade binder asphalt. The resin bound mixture has open voids across the surface, allowing air to flow freely and surface water to filter through the structure, making it highly suitable for driveways, paths, tree pits and areas prone to standing water. The smooth surface, with no loose stones, is ideal for wheelchair access and tough enough to withstand pressure washing.
By contrast, resin bonded surfacing is non-permeable and must be laid on a non-porous fine wearing course asphalt or concrete base. With resin bonded paving, soakaways and ACO drains must be installed to prevent run-off which could lead to flooding.
