We are specialists in the resin driveway industry, which means our knowledge and expertise are vast! However, we understand that for many, having a resin driveway laid is a one-time occurrence and as a result, your understanding may be limited. Our experts are here to ensure that from your initial consultation through to the very end of your resin driveway project, you are kept in the loop and fully understand our methods.

The two resin components are mixed together. The resin will then be poured into a forced action mixer which has been pre-charged with the aggregate of your choice.
The resin and aggregate will then be mixed until the aggregate is coated. The mix is then moved to the application area and roughly applied. This will then be compacted and finished finally by hand.
This answer will depend on what the installation will be used for, but we recommend:
Yes - we supply resin bound surfaces with UVR resin protection. The UVR refers to an aliphatic polyurethane system which is extremely resistant to discolouration through exposure to light and is very light stable.
We recommend UVR resin for aggregates that are light coloured or other aggregates where colour stability is an essential requirement.
Resin bound systems must be applied at a minimum of 5°C. On hot days, we recommend resin is applied in the early morning or later afternoon as otherwise the resin will thin out due to the excess heat and can drain away.
A key difference between resin bound and resin bond is the thickness in which they are applied, appearance, application and materials used:
Resin bound is compliant with SuDS as it is a permeable surface with many voids over the surface area which make it more effective than comparable SuDS systems. The water can soak through the many surfaces and drain away.
The sub-base must be compliant with SuDS which is why we have a precise SuDS base buil-up specification which outlines the requirements.
The Environmental Agency introduced a set of requirements for Sustainable Drainage Systems (SuDS) to eliminate flooding caused by water run-off in urban areas and the risk of pollution as contaminants mix with the water.
