Resin Bound Gravel is NOT the same as Resin Bonded Gravel!

The similarity between the names of these two types of resin surfaces is often a cause of confusion. Both approaches use clear resin to combine aggregate, but that is where the similarity ends.

Resin Bonded Gravel surfacing involves laying resin over the top of aggregate and then scattering clean dry aggregate over the top of the resin. Once the resin is dry, the excess stone is swept away and a rough surface is left behind. 1-6 mm stones are typically used. The resin in this kind of surfacing is laid a single layer, which means that the stone will loosen over time and begin to scatter. Resin Bonded Gravel is not water-permeable and it is often not particularly hard-wearing or durable.

Resin Bound Gravel surfacing involves mixing natural aggregate into clear resin so it is fully coated before laying it onto a stable surface. The finished depth of Resin Bound Gravel can be anywhere from 12-24mm, depending on the application and the size and type of stones being used. The stones themselves can vary in size from 3-10mm and this method allows for a great variety of textures, finishes and colours to be created, all of which is protected by the resin, so the colours won’t fade. Resin Bound Gravel is fully water-permeable, exceptionally durable and completely smooth and free of loose stone.
