Resin Surfaces

Redlough Landscapes are market leaders in the area of Resin Bound gravel surfacing and Resin Bonded gravel surfacing .

This type of product is increasing in popularity for a wide range of applications such as driveways, patios, conservatories, swimming pool surrounds, disabled access ramps, roof terraces and balconies. Resin Bound gravel surfacing is a fully permeable SUDS compliant system and offers an environmentally sound alternative to traditional paving products. As rainwater management becomes a more topical issue and one which the public at large are becoming more aware of the use of a SUDS compliant surfacing solutions will take on greater importance. The Addaset system offers a distinct advantage over other resin bound products in the market place by using a high ratio of resin to aggregates.  This means that the surface retains its integrity over a longer period and is not susceptible to cracking. Resin bound paving is available in a wide range of aggregates and colours to suit any setting.

Frequently asked questions

What exactly is resin bound paving / aggregate ?

Put simply resin bound paving is a mixture of aggregates and resin combined with a hardener which forms a hard durable surface suitable for pedesterian or vehicular use. The resin bound paving products we apply are called Addaset, manufafactured by Addagrip.
 
What surfaces can I apply resin bound paving to ?

Resin bound surfaces are generally laid directly on a prepared base of concrete or tarmacadam/ashphalt.

Does  Addaset need  to be laid on a newly prepared base?

No, as long as the original base is sound and has been thoroughly cleaned and loose materials and weeds have been removed.  In some instances a self levelling compound may be required over a rough or uneven base.

How quickly can I use it ?

Addaset can be lightly trafficed for pedesterian use after 12 hours. It is recommended not to drive on it for 24 hours after application. The resin component continues  to strengthen over a number of weeks to form a  completely solid mass.

What is  the  difference  between the 'trowel finish' and the 'scatter/broadcast  system'

Our trowel finish system is mixed and laid at a depth of 12mm or 18mm depending on usage.  The broadcast system is scattered directly on  the resin coated surface at a depth of 1-3mm

How long will it last ?

The manufacturers of our resin bound  surfacing system estimate that the lifespan of the product is 15-20 years.
