What is Resin Bound?

Resin Bound is a surfacing solution that results from mixing resin and aggregates together in a forced action mixer. This creates a mixture that can be trowelled onto a surface to provide a smooth, flat finish. 

A Resin Bound system is also known as ‘stone carpet’. Its seamless finish provides a decorative bound gravel surface that is attractive, durable, and practical.

Because of the way it is mixed, allowing for small gaps between aggregates, a Resin Bound system is permeable. This means it is also a SUDS compliant solution which means planning permission isn't required as long as a suitable porous subbase is used.

The Resin Bound system can be overlaid to existing or new concrete or tarmac to create beautiful resin driveways, pathways, car parks or any light traffic surfaces.

Resin Bound systems bring several benefits compared with other surfacing systems, including permeability, improved slip resistance, seamless finishes and more. Learn more about the benefits of Resin Bound gravel.

Resin Bound is a permeable paving solution that is SUDS compliant

A Resin Bound system is a permeable paving solution. This means it allows water to pass directly through it into the ground beneath. This is handy for a number of reasons.

  • Firstly, Resin Bound is a Sustainable Urban Drainage System (SUDS) compliant surface solution, providing it is laid on an appropriate permeable sub-base.
  • A permeable resin driveway will help prevent standing water on the surface. This means fewer puddles and fewer wet shoes.
  • Allowing water to pass through into the ground beneath also helps to reduce flood risk in both urban and rural areas.
