As an alternative to more traditional forms of surfacing, such as block paving, decorative surfacing resins are becoming more common in construction due to its low maintenance, hard wearing and highly durable properties, as well as being aesthetically pleasing with near limitless design possibilities.
Decorative Resin Surfacing Systems
The resin surfacing is applied over the top of an existing substrate; typically this will be a single base with little or no joins to ensure the strength of the surface.
There are two types of resin surfacing systems:
Resin Bound Surfacing: Consists of a resin that is mixed with a decorative aggregate to fully coat each particle creating a SUDS compliant, non-yellowing, highly durable surface.
Resin Bonded Surfacing: A 'coat and scatter' system where the resin is applied directly to the substrate and broadcast with aggregate. This results in a high friction surface that can be coloured to create unique, long lasting designs.
These systems give the appearance of loose aggregate, but without the problems associated, such as spread of aggregate particles onto nearby spaces, rutting from traffic or a build-up of partially buried and trapped rubbish.
