If you are looking for a contemporary Resin Bound surface with ‘NO DIG’ or a ‘MINIMUM DIG’ requirement Terrabase Classic can provide the solution.

Terrabase Classic is an innovative paving system that provides a decorative, contemporary, permeable surface using our BBA accredited Resin Bound systems. The system is suitable for pedestrian footpaths and areas subject to occasional trafficking by light vehicles including driveways and parking spaces.

Depending on your requirements, Terrabase Classic can be applied directly onto most suitable surfaces and gradients. Potentially it can even be installed directly onto the ground with no or minimum digging or edging required. An ideal replacement or overlay system for self-binding surfaces such as ‘Hoggin’ as it is fully bound and will not be washed away.

Terrabase Classic is porous, allowing water to permeate/percolate through the surface and beyond when a suitable base build-up configured for SuDS (Sustainable Urban Drainage Systems) has been installed.

Using our innovative Terrabase system, the choice of surface finish includes our BBA approved 6mm and 10mm Addaset, Addabound and Terrabound Resin Bound blends offering a contemporary finish without the need for invasive groundworks making it ideal for garden design project and sensitive sites.

If you require a more rustic looking finish using a larger stone size, take a look at our Terrabase Rustic Resin Bound porous surfacing system with a 6-10mm aggregate blend.

Frequently Asked Questions

What’s The Difference Between Resin Bound And Resin Bonded?

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.

Is Resin Bound Surfacing SuDS Compliant?

The Addagrip range of Resin Bound surfacing systems are porous and SuDS compliant when installed onto one of our recommended porous base build ups.

Is Resin Bound Surfacing Suitable For Driveways

The Addagrip range of BBA approved Addaset, Addabound Terrabound Resin Bound surfacing, Stonebound and Terrabase systems are suitable for driveways when installed onto one of our recommended base build ups.

Are our resin surfacing systems solvent free?

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.

What Does Resin Bound Surfacing Cost?

Cost depends on sqm area, site specifics such as base requirements, edging and design specification. Contact us to request a quote.

What’s The Lifespan Of Resin Bound Surfacing?

Our BBA range of  Addaset, Addabound and Terrabound Resin Bound systems have an anticipated lifespan of 15-25 years depending on usage and come with a Product Guarantee of up to 25 years.
