FAQs

None of the products used for Addagrip’s Resin Bound or Resin Bonded external surfacing systems contain non-aqueous/non-polar solvents as part of the product formulation, ensuring that they are solvent free.

Please note: small quantities of a proprietary solvent mix are offered to contractors to aid in the cleaning of tools and equipment. As this solvent mix will damage the resin surfacing, it is always recommended that tool cleaning is carried out infrequently (i.e. only at the end of application sessions), and in a well ventilated area a suitable distance away from any freshly-laid material.

Resin Bonded Addastone Plus is suitable for driveways offering a textured appearance that replicates the look of loose gravel.

Resin bonded gravel surfaces are very resilient. However, life spans will depend on usage and choices of aggregate. Typical examples of expected life are as follows:

  • Footpaths using a 2-5mm Brittany Bronze: 8-15 Years
  • Domestic Drive using a 1-3mm Chinese Bauxite: 8-15 Years
  • Car Parks using a 1-3mm Guyanan Bauxite: 5-10 Years
  • Roads using 1-3mm Chinese Bauxite 5- 8 Years

There are two different systems that use resin to fix gravel aggregates to create decorative surfacing. These are Resin Bound porous paving and Resin Bonded paving and whilst similar in name they have different properties, application methods and aesthetics.

Resin bound surfacing consists of aggregate mixed with resin in specific blends using specific aggregate to resin ratios. The material is trowelled down to a smooth finish similar to a screed (with no loose stones). Depths are specified depending on aggregate size, normally 12mm, 16mm, 18mm or 24mm.

Resin bonded surfacing is a scatter system which provides texture and the appearance of loose gravel.
A layer of resin is applied to a suitable surface laid to falls and covered with loose aggregate. Once cured the remaining loose stones are removed. Thickness is governed by aggregate size. i.e. 1-3mm aggregate will have a nominal depth of 4mm.
