What resin should I use for resin bonding?
There are two principal types of resin for Resin Bonding. These are Aromatic Resin and Aliphatic Resin, and each has differing properties and uses.
Aromatic Resin is a non UV stable polyurethane resin used in both resin bound and bonded applications and will be affected by sunlight in that it will change colour to a darker shade and is generally used for darker aggregates or non decorative applications. This resin is less expensive than the Aliphatic UV stable resin.
Aliphatic Resin is a UV stable clear polyurethane resin for all applications and is not affected by the sunlight keeping its appearance and showing the aggregates to their best effect. Although more expensive it will not fade.
