What Is Resin Bonded Stone?

There are many examples of where RESIN BONDED STONE can be used. Some of which are listed below. Resin bonded stone (also known as Resin Bonded Stone) can be applied to sound substrates such as tarmac wearing course, concrete, metal or timber.

Where Can It Be Applied?

There are many examples of where RESIN BONDED STONE can be used. Some of which are listed below. Resin bonded stone (also known as Resin Bonded Stone) can be applied to sound substrates such as tarmac wearing course, concrete, metal or timber.

How Is It Applied?

This system can be applied to a Tarmac Wearing Course, sound smooth concrete and even metal or timber board. It is usually applied at either 3mm, or 5mm thick dependant on location, traffic etc.

Firstly, the floor area is cleaned followed by repairing any cracks, filling joints and removing loose material. Any susbstrate is then sealed with a ‘resin bond PU primer coat’, then a further ‘flood coat’ is applied.

Preparation for Resin Bond PU Surfacing

Surface must be clean and dry and of strong enough construction for the intended use. All New surfaces should be left for a minimum of four weeks for moisture or oils to cure out. If in doubt as to surface strength a core sample should be taken. Macadam and asphalt should be laid up to a 6mm or 10mm close graded wearing course.

Concrete surfaces should be abraded or etched to remove laitence (the dusty material on the surface of new concrete) Resin Bond PU Primer applied at 4sqm per kg by roller.

New Macadam or Asphalt should be sealed with Resin Bond Acrylic Mixture to seal the interstices between the stone to stop the resin soaking away as it applied.

Application of Resin Bonded Paving

The resin is thoroughly mixed with its hardener using a drill and a forced action paddle mixer (110V). The resin is poured across the surface at a rate determined by the aggregate size, The Resin is spread using a serrated squeegee, As the serrations fall from the resin the aggregate is gently scattered in until the resin saturated, if any resin is seen to bleed through more aggregate is scattered on.

The following day excess aggregate is swept off to reveal a finish which has the appearance of loose aggregate but is durably stuck in place.

Application rates for a range of aggregate sizes on to a sound flat surface.

Aggregate Size Aggregate per m2 Resin per m2
1mm 5kg 1kg
1-3mm 8kg 1.6kg
2-5mm 14kg 2.2kg

Where concrete requires priming allow 0.25kg Resin Bond EP Primer per m2.

To seal concrete, use Resin Bond PU Primer. Allow 4 square metre per kilogram, by roller.

To seal sound but porous Macadam or Asphalt allow 1ltr per m2 of Resin Bond Acrylic mixture per m2.

Resin Bonded External Surfacing

Where there is a necessity for a more slip resistant surface, such as steps or sloping driveways, Pathwise Resin Bonded paving is the ideal solution. Our product offers fantastic wear resistance and anti-slip properties.

Initially the area to be covered is prepared, including the removal of weed growth and loose materials. Any making good is also done at this stage. The process involves applying the base resin directly into the prepared surface and the chosen quartz or shingle is then scattered liberally into the curing resin base. Once cured (usually 3-4 hours) the surface is then swept to remove any excess stones.

The end result is a decorative durable and functional finish. The product is particularly useful where slime and algae cause slippery conditions.
