The key difference between resin bound and resin bonded surfaces is in the way the surface is prepared. Resin bonded surfaces involve laying the resin first.

The beauty of resin surfacing is that it can be laid straight over an existing surface such as concrete or tarmac. The only real requirement is that the current surface be stable enough to support the resin surface on top. If the foundations are found to be too badly worn, the existing surface would need to be stripped away and a new base prepared. We usually advise a new base as this ensures a longer service life.
Yes. Resin surfacing should never be laid on top of concrete slabs, block or crazy paving. The reason for this is that these aren’t uniform surfaces, rather, they consist of individual components which can potentially shift. Any such movements could cause the resin to crack compromising your driveway.
No. The resin we use is UV-stable, so it won’t fade or change colour even in direct sunlight. A resin driveway will sport the same eye-catching colours for the entire duration of its life cycle.
For paths and patios, a softer aggregate is often used which isn’t suitable. But, for driveways, a tougher, more hard-wearing aggregate is used which can withstand up to 30 tonnes of weight. This well exceeds the maximum weight limit of even the heaviest car. In short, resin surfaces can more than comfortably support one or multiple vehicles.
Then, before the resin has a chance to cure, the aggregate is scattered over the top. Once the resin has cured, any loose stones are swept aside, leaving behind the appearance of tightly-packed, loose gravel. Resin bonded gravel on the Isle of Wight is a great choice for any surface where grip is required.
This makes it ideal for paving, patios, and courtyards as the rough surface provides extra grip when wet. The size of the aggregate usually governs the thickness of the resin bonded gravel. Isle of Wight customers can choose from a staggering range of coloured stones and gravel to use as the aggregate. The result is a surface that looks truly unique.
The beauty of resin is that it is capable of withstanding temperature extremes. It won’t freeze in sub-zero temperatures, and won’t soften in intense heatwaves. We also use UV-stabilised resin, so the surface won’t fade or discolour with prolonged exposure to sunlight. Plus, with the exception of block paving and concrete slabs on the Isle of Wight, resin bonded gravel can be applied over virtually any surface. This makes it a terrific all-around material.
