Resin bonded aggregate benefit

We regularly get asked what is the  most beneficial  resin bonded aggregate benefit?   This one is a hard one to answer as there

are a number  of benefits  but we would say the most effective resin bonded aggregate benefit would be to be able to resurface

the existing  surface.

If it’s not broke don’t fix it!   Minimum mess!   Minimum  disruption  and no skips!

There is a reason concrete and tarmac are used as the base for driveways  (vehicular access)  and many other products nowadays

would struggle to equate to the  strength of such monolithic surfaces.  This reinforces the fact that an additional resin bonded aggregate benefit is that it is still the concrete or tarmac taking the weight of the vehicle.

Resin bonded stone  can be completed in a day!

Resin bonded  resurfacing  does not affect existing levels

Resin bonded resurfacing by Drive- Cote Ltd uses a natural stone product and requires no sealant.

Resin bonded gravel resurfaces existing surfaces such as concrete and tarmac  products which are built for vehicle use.

Resin bonded stone  provides an anti slip and virtually maintenance free option and finally resin bonded stone is a more environmentally friendly product.  According to The Concrete Society

Aggregates form the major part of concrete and are derived from many types of rock. Granite and limestone are extracted from quarries, crushed and graded. In many parts of the UK, land-based or marine sand and gravel are available: these require some processing, such as washing and grading, before use in concrete. Washing removes deleterious contaminants such as chlorides from marine-derived materials or excessive amounts of clay and silt from land-based sources. In some cases, silt particles can be recovered by flocculation so that they can be used as part of the fine aggregate. To minimise transport costs, aggregates are processed at their source or the landing point of marine materials. The major environmental concerns of aggregate production are outlined in the Table.

Stage in aggregate processing Major environmental impacts
Quarrying and processing raw material Scarring of landscape
  Dust and noise
  Some sources are in areas of outstanding natural beauty
  Proximity to major centres of population
  Loss of aggricultural land (or removal from use for many years)
  Energy consumption; carbon dioxide emissions etc.
Delivery of aggregate to concrete production plant Fuel, noise and traffic

Actions taken by the aggregate industry include: the increased use of recycled concrete as aggregate and artificial aggregates made from by-products of other industries;  worked-out quarries used as landfill sites before landscaping; and gravel pits used for recreational water sports, natures reserves etc.  Where feasible rail or water transport is used to reduce transport impacts”
