resin bonded? resin bound? Mansfield Ashfield Bolsover

resin bonded? resin bound? What is the difference, what is  the general opinion?

Who’s right and who’s wrong?Is one better than the other?

Plenty of feedback on this forum and reading the comments  – even we are confused with which one is  which? Do they mean resin bound or resin bonded?  Easy to work out the difference –  resin bound means it is bound together (resin and stone) in a mixer and resin bonded means the stone bonds to the surface and the special aggregate bonds to the resin.

resin bonded? resin bound?

We at Drive-Cote primarily work with resin bonded.  The idea being this resurfaces the existing  concrete or tarmac tired or damaged driveway path or patio.  Resin bonded stone is an impermeable surface for an impermeable surface.  We at Drive-Cote Ltd have great difficulty in justifying a porous or permeable surface (resin bound) being installed on an impermeable surface (tarmac or concrete).  Where does the water drain to?

I think the overriding thing to remember is don’t rush.
