PolyBound Resins

PolyBound Premium and PolyBound Commercial Surfacing is a resin bound aggregate surface for pedestrian and vehicular traffic. PolyBound surfaces are decorative and functional, seamless and slightly flexible. All our PolyBound Resins are pre-catalysed, this means you dont need to make hard calculations to make sure your resin bound surface will cure. The open matrix allows water to drain through to the base, eliminating water ponding and allowing water to drain to planted areas or land drains. The surfacing may be applied to SuDS compliant bases and sub-bases, reducing the impact of urban development on flood risk and allowing water to flow into water courses. Edgings created from brick, stone, timber or steel should be installed to retain and protect the resin bound surfacing.

Features

Natural appearance
UVR is stable non yellowing resin
Recycled aggregates available
Highly permeable
Slip resistant (when used in conjunction with crushed glass)
A resin bound wearing course offers a number of advantages:

There are no loose stones – the decorative aggregate can’t be scattered or kicked about.
It’s firmly and permanently bound
It’s a full-thickness system, minimum 12mm thick and can be considerably thicker depending on aggregate size and application
It has a long lifespan as the resin and the aggregates are specially selected for durability
It can be laid very quickly – a 2 man gang can lay 30m² or more per hour and, with good weather conditions, a gang of 5 men would expect to cover 250m² in a single day
It can be used to overlay existing ‘tired-looking’ surfaces
Unique designs, logos and patterns are easily incorporated
There’s a huge choice of aggregates available including rounded or crushed stone and tumbled coloured glass. Aggregates can be ‘blended’ to produce a particular shade or tone as required
The finished surface can be UV stable
Once set, the wearing course exhibits some flexibility enabling it to resist cracking
It’s wheelchair friendly, making it ideal for DDA schemes
