Two systems are used to fix gravel aggregates in place using resin material. One is the resin bound system and the other is the resin bonded system. Want to know the difference between resin bound and resin bonded aggregates? Let’s take a look!
Resin bonded aggregate is non-porous. A scatter system is used, and this creates the appearance of texture, making the driveway looks as if it was made from loose gravel. It’s a great look for homes hoping to achieve a traditional look and to benefit from a non-porous drive. There are several benefits to be gained from choosing non-porous resin bonded aggregates, as you will see below.
When the surface is laid, a layer of resin is applied to the driveway. Once set, any remaining loose stones are removed, leaving a smooth yet textured drive.
Resin bound aggregates are different as the resin is not applied as a single layer over the chosen aggregate on the driveway. Instead, the resin is mixed in with the aggregate, which is then trowelled onto the drive to create a smooth finish. The resin bound driveway allows water to permeate the surface – so no need for additional drainage.
