What is resin bound stone surface?
The resin bound stone creates a long-lasting, even, anti-slip, permeable surface. It is achieved by carefully coating each stone with clear resin. Each stone can have a different shape and colour and covering them with resin not only keeps them together, but also protects them.
The aggregate – stone – is mixed on site, it’s a cold mixture which then is applied on a base. Base has to be sturdy, like concrete, old paving slabs, even stone.
Depth of a resin bound depends on the requirements, on average it is 5-15mm, applied by hand for precision and quality finish.
What is the difference between resin bound and resin bonded surface?
Resin bonded surface is achieved by applying resin to a base and then ‘gluing’ the stones to the resin. It’s thinner than a resin bound surface as it is just one layer of stone. In addition, it is not permeable. We do not do resin bonded surfaces – we specialise in resin bound solutions.
