porous permeable resin bonded stone

porous permeable resin bonded stone  -is it permeable?  Or is it porous – whats the difference?

Porosity tells us how much water rock or soil can retain. Permeability is a measure of how easily water can travel through porous soil or bedrock. Soil and loose sediments, such as sand and gravel, are porous and permeable. They can hold a lot of water, and it flows easily through them. Although clay and shale are porous and can hold a lot of water, the pores in these fine-grained materials are so small that water flows very slowly through them. Clay has a low permeability.

Resin bonded stone is not porous or permeable, resin bound paving, aggregate and stone are all said to be permeable.  The question is how permeable is a porous surface.

We have been working with resin for over 15 years now and we are constantly amazed at the reports out there that the free draining of a surface can solve all your drainage problems.

Porous permeable resin bonded stone is not an option because it is an impermeable and protective surface. The purpose of a resin bonded surface is different than a resin bound application.  In addition to this it is a completely different installation process.
