Resin Bonded Aggregate – What is it? Can I use it on my driveway, path or patio?
Resin Bonded Aggregate is an anti skid surfacing product which uses a combination of resin and aggregates hence the Resin Bonded Aggregate name.
It provides a durable and protective resurfacing option for your driveway path and patio and is applied as a rule to tarmac, concrete and imprinted concrete. Resin Bonded Aggregate can provide a weed free option as it prevents the ingress of water.
Our supplier of aggregates has developed a range of products that can give bright vibrant colours, more natural tones or a specialist mix which can be chosen to suit. These Aggregates are selected from quarries throughout the UK and Europe. The choice and range available has been developed over the past 25 years and whilst not an exhaustive selection here are some options available
Resin Bonded Aggregate systems need an existing base or surface typically tarmac, asphalt, concrete known as a monolithic material.
This is required as the application of resin in a Resin Bonded Aggregate system is spread over the existing surface and then has the chosen aggregate applied.
The driveway, path or patio does have to be assessed and one shoe does not fit all. For example we have been out to view drives where the actual substrate or core is not structurally sound and as a result of this we have not been able to work with the resin on the existing surface.
The cleaning and preparation of the surfaces should be a very important aspect. Not only is the Resin Bonded Aggregate relying on the soundness of the existing concrete or tarmac surface, it is important that the surface is cleaned properly with all loose materials and dust removed and sealed if necessary. Any contaminates such as oil need to be removed as does the removal of any algae. If not removed this can affect the efficacy of the application.
