12.What is the difference between the bonded & bound system?

The Bonded system involves the process of applying the resin to the substrate dressing it with aggregate then once dry removing the excess aggregate. The finished surface has a natural textured finish and some excess aggregate will remain. The finished surface averages 3-5mm in depth using a 1-3mm aggregate. The Boundtex resin bound system involves the process of completely encapsulating the aggregate within the resin and is usually applied to between 15 - 18mm in depth. Resin bound gravel is water permeable and there is no loose stone.

14.Is either system porous/permeable?

Yes the resin bound system is porous, as is AquaPave water permeable paving.

15.Which is the right system for me?

Resin Bonded Surfaces Ltd is one of very few companies in the UK that can install both systems. Because of this we have no preference to which you chose meaning you'll receive completely unbiased advice. Different systems suit different projects and you will receive balanced advice and information about each systems so you can make an independent informed choice.

16.What are the benefits of a seal coat on a resin bonded gravel system?

A seal coat can be applied to the bonded system. This will improve stain resistance, make cleaning easier & reduce the amount of loose aggregate to a minimum.

17.How do I clean stains off?

You can apply engine degreaser then lightly scrub with a stiff brush before washing off.

18.Can I lay it myself?

If the area is larger than 50m2 we would recommend that you use our fully trianed installers, however DIY Kits are available for smaller projects.

19.Can resin bonded or resin bound aggregate be installed directly on to a compacted type 1 or
hard core base?

No both surfaces have to be applied to a structurally sound substrate.

20.Can the systems be jet washed?

Both systems can be jet washed using a jet washer of up30 120bar not closer than 6 inches to the surface.

21.Should there be an edge detail?

You should either have an edging already, or need one installed. This is so that the finish is neat and tidy, and the edges are protected by spalling.

22.I have loose gravel on my drive that moves all over the place can i bond it together with resin?

No, the aggregate required is specialised and must be dry, dust free and the correct size for the application.

23.What size area can be covered in a day?

Depending on the condition of the base, once prepared we can install up to 1000m2 a day of bonded aggregate using 10 installers and 300m2 a day of bound aggregate using 6 installers.

24.Will the systems fade in sunlight?

The resin bonded gravel system will retain its colour and the resin bound system non UV will show a slight yellowing but this is only used when it enhances the colour and the aggregate used. The resin bound UVR system will retain its colour even with white aggregate.
