New Contractors - The Future in Surfacing

If you are a new contractor looking to start with resin and aggregate systems then look no further. We at Derbyshire Aggregates are always happy to help get you going with all the information, samples and training you will need - read on and then get in touch with us.

So what is Resin Bound all about?

It is the fastest growing surfacing application in the last 5 years, with its hard wearing and natural finish, it is a stunning alternative to block paving, tarmac, concrete or loose gravel. Add to this its versatility in application, as it can be easily applied on slopes, areas with limited access, intricate areas such as winding paths, from small patio areas to grand sweeping driveways. With all this flexibility the resin bound is becoming the "go to" solution. The system can also meet all SUD'S regulations.  

It's no wonder installers of traditional paving, tarmac and concrete are starting to install resin bound systems for new build and renovations.

How is it applied?

It is trowel finished by hand, after first mixing the resin and the hardener together, and then adding to the aggregate in a forced action mixer. The key is to make sure all of the components parts, the mixing, adding the resin and trowelling are all done in the correct way as it can affect the consistancy and colour of the mix. This is one of the reasons that we always recommend training as the initial step for a new contractor.


This would be a short course to learn how the resin and aggregates can be sucessfully laid, this would include all the tricks of the trade and all the do's and dont's. It is important with the resin bound system to understand how the resin works and reacts under different circumstances, the limitations of the weather, and the site conditions needed to produce the best results.

All of the contractors that have completed a training course say that it was well worth doing.

New Business Opportunities for you.
