Resin Paving

Surebond Surfaces UK has been laying resin paving for over 35 years from the first types being resin bonded stone and resin bound stone paving.

There are mainly two types of resin paving we offer and our industry standards known as resin bound stone paving and resin bonded stone, which was the most widely used prior to the new generation resin bound stone paving.

Resin bound stone paving UV stable and non UV systems are generally laid between 15mm-20mm sometimes thicker when using larger stones. Whereas the surface thickness of resin bonded stone is typically 3-6mm depending on selected stone size.

Resin Bonded Stone

Resin bonded stone is a bonded surface dressing where a two part adhesive is mixed and laid onto sound substrates such as in concrete, tarmac, and steel decking. Stone is fully broadcast into the applied resin adhesive, it gives a more rustic finish than resin bound stone paving since the stones are sat on the surface of the adhesive. Resin bonded stone looks like loose gravel but bonded to the surface. This system is non permeable and is particularly useful on very slippery sloping drives or walkways.

This system is also widely used as anti skid on roadways and bridges and is not to be confused with tar and chippings as resin bonded stone is many times more durable when applied correctly.

Resin bound stone paving (permeable paving)

Resin bound stone is a permeable finish which allows water to drain through it and not pond rainfall. Widely used as it complies with SUDs sustainable urban drainage allowing water to drain through the system and into the ground and not sending to drains causing flash flooding in heavy down pours. Permeable paving solutions need a permeable base such as permeable base tarmac and eco grids and X grid recycled plastic reinforced permeable stone filled interlocking grids.

Resin bound overlay paving

Resin bound overlay paving can be used over existing paving such as existing tarmac, concrete, paving slabs etc.

You should be satisfied that the bases have settled and not on the move and this system is considered when you don't want the expense of installing a new base. It should be considered as a way of tidying up unsightly drives and paths. Although we can reinforce existing cracks with reinforcing mesh this does not guarantee movement cannot create reflective cracking. If in doubt always consider the full dig out and new base system before installing the resin paving.

UV stable or non-UV

In the early days of resin paving non UV resin was mostly used but now with the resin technology making available UV resistant resin we will always recommend the very best UV resistant resins. Non-UV resins are still available but do discolour and should only be considered with darker colours where the budget does not allow for the very best UV resistant non discolouring resin formulations.
