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 Aggregates

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.

Benefits of Being Bonded

  • There’s no need to worry about maintenance as it’s quick, easy and infrequent.
  • The rough finish of the textured driveway is perfect for creating an anti-slip surface. These driveways are perfect for properties/gardens on a slope, public spaces and for those concerned about trips, slips and falls.
  • Unlike traditional gravel driveways, the loose particles are not broken up and don’t get washed away. The surface remains even and in place, with a long-life expectancy of approximately 15 years or more.
  • Multiple colour options are available, resulting in a beautiful finish that completes the look of the home.

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

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.

Benefits of Being Bound

  • Reduce standing water, leaving your drive free from puddles and reducing the risk of ice formations during the colder months.
  • The bound aggregate works to protect the sub-base thanks to the porous nature of the surface. Water can be spread evenly over the entire surface rather than being concentrated in one are, which can lead to subsidence and cracks.
  • No additional drainage system is required, helping to keep costs to a minimum. Discuss the right driveway aggregates for your products and ask for a quote by calling us on 0113 4570 715.
