Mixing resins in order to make the components of your new driveway is completed with the use of a force action mixer. Combine this tool with ingredients (such as your resin and your aggregate material) and you have your resin bound kits ready to go.
There are a few things to remember prior to mixing, such as the importance of not taking shortcuts. The mixing stage is the most crucial stage of the driveway installation stage. Cut corners and you will have a second-rate driveway. That being said, let’s see exactly how it’s mixed!
As aforementioned above, you need appropriate driveway kits before starting anything. So give yourself a mental checklist of your mixer, your aggregate, your resin and your tools for pre and post installation. You want to make sure you have everything accessible so as not to delay the process any longer.
When mixing resins together, you want to ensure that every possible bit of resin is used, this guarantees a smooth and even mixture to be added to the aggregate. A good way to check this is by dipping your mixing drill to the bottom of the pot and lift it back out. If the resin on the drill is a consistent colour, your resins are properly mixed!
When it comes to laying a driveway, there should be three people in your installation team. Below are the people required and what role they play in the process.
