Drive-Cote Ltd resin bonded scatter coat system explained
Over 2 years ago we did a post on our website with regard to the Drive-Cote Ltd resin bonded scatter coat system and how important it is to highlight the unique benefits that our system has over the resin bound system. Anti slip properties for example are far more effective in the bonded system. Why? because the aggregate used sits proud causing the surface to be more aggressive in its properties.
As quoted on the pavingexpert.com website ( a mine of information on many other surfacing options) “The qualities of resin bonded surfacing (also called the resin bonded scatter coat system) is eminently suitable for a wide range of surfacing projects where an attractive, gravel-like, natural-looking surface, with excellent anti-slip properties is required. Although it is proving to be a popular choice for driveways and patios, it is also widely used in the commercial sector for use on car parks, footpaths and cycleways, shopping malls and leisure facilities, schools and play areas, and is a market leader for use on steps, ramps, balconies, footbridges and other areas that require a simple, low-weight surface with a high level of slip resistance. Its use is not limited to outdoor applications, though – it is equally suitable for indoor applications, such as retail areas looking for a more natural flooring, for atria, corridors, factory floors, stairwells, etc”
Our post in February 2014 Anti slip highlighted
– scatter coat resin bonded stone is anti slip – the angular non coated aggregate provides excellent adhesion and anti slip properties. Resin bound stone provides a shiny surface as it is a covering for the stone. This can be “anti slipped” so to speak but is nowhere as effective as the Drive-Cote Ltd resin bonded scatter coat system.
The current climate includes being green, climate friendly and suds compliant. Our scattercoat resin bonded stone meets these criteria. It is green as the polyurethane resin we use is non toxic, uv stable, does not require the removal of the existing concrete or tarmac. Suds compliance does not mean a surface has to be permeable, it means the run off water needs to be managed correctly.
Our research proves that once the difference between the two is clarified to the customer and they already have an existing surface, that they choose our scatter coat resin bonded stone.
