What is the difference between resin bound surfacing and resin bonded surfacing?
Resin bound surfacing and resin bonded surfacing are often mistaken for the same systems but look different, feel different and provide very different properties.  Both systems use a combination of aggregates and resin and are used to provide a slip resistant decorative finish but that is where the similarity ends.

Resin Bound Surfacing suitable for Driveways, Patios, Conservatories, Footpaths, Walkways, Corridors, Cycle Paths, Playgrounds, Pool and Pond Surrounds.

Resin Bound Surfacing involves mixing the aggregates together with the resin in a forced action mixer.  The mixed material is then taken from the mixer, poured on to the surface, raked out and then finished with a trowel to leave a flat surface to a thickness of 15mm.  The idea of the resin bound surfacing is to provide a slip resistant decorative surface which is highly water permeable.

Resin Bonded Surfacing suitable for Driveways, Patios, Paths, Can be applied to bituminous, concrete, tarmac, metal and timber.

Resin Bonded Surfacing is often referred to as a scatter system.  It involves mixing the resin with a drill and paddle and pouring it on to the surface.  The resin is then spread out using a roller, trowel or notched squeegee..  The aggregate is then broadcast over the top of the resin ensuring complete coverage.  Once the resin has cured the surface should be sweep to remove any loose aggregate that has not bonded to the surface.  Once the loose aggregate has been removed, the resin bonded surfacing should be seal using a UV stable polyurethane coating.  This will provide a more durable surface, improved retention of aggregates, enhanced decoration and also resistance to UV light. The broadcasting of the aggregate leaves you with a rough, textured finish and high friction surface.  Due to the overall thickness of the resin bonded surfacing system  any imperfections in the base will be identifiable even after being covered.  Surface imperfections should be repaired prior to application.
