What is a BoundWorx® Resin Bound Surface?
Perfect for both domestic and commercial projects, our BoundWorx® Resin Bound system has been formulated to the highest standard. A BoundWorx® surface is created by mixing a high quality, clear, UV Stable polyurethane resin with a blend of natural aggregates which is then trowelled down onto a suitable surface.
We recommend that our Resin Bound system be laid by a team of trained and experienced contractors. Should you require the details of a trained contractor near you, or for any further information about our trade material supply and contractor training opportunities, please do not hesitate to contact us.
Why install BoundWorx®?
Strong and Durable
When laid to the correct specifications, the structural strength of the BoundWorx system means that it should last well in excess of 10 years. All of our aggregate blends include suitable fines and clear quartz sand to improve structural strength and maintain grip.
UV Stability is vital. In order to retain the colour of the chosen BoundWorx finish, the system has been formulated to ensure that it is fully UV Stable. Non or partial UV Stable alternatives will discolour within weeks of being installed, creating a yellowing and patchy effect where there are shaded areas.
BoundWorx is extremely low maintenance. Rain water will keep it generally clean and a light pressure wash will remove any build up of algae or dirt contamination.
Permeable and Eco Friendly
BoundWorx is a permeable, SuDS compliant system which often eliminates the need to obtain planning permission. Its porous nature means this is an environmentally friendly alternative to conventional surfacing solutions.
Attractive and Appealing
Available in a wide range of stunning natural stone finishes, and even in elite marble and glass finishes, the BoundWorx Resin Bound system is anti-slip and highly attractive. The smart, stylish and modern look can dramatically improve the look of any property.
Resin Bound Preparation
The BoundWorx® resin bound system should be laid onto a structurally sound and secure base, typically of either open graded tarmac or concrete which has been laid to falls with appropriate drainage. To prevent possible cracking or sinking in the resin layer there should be no movement in the sub-base.
A solid edging detail must be in place for the resin to be laid up to. Typical edging details are Granite Setts or concrete edging stones. We can supply aluminium metal edging strips if required.
Resin Bound Application
The resin and hardener are mixed together using a 110V drill and paddle mixer. This is then mixed with the chosen aggregate blend, including the necessary fines and sand, in a specialised large Forced Action Mixer. We are agents for Baron and suggest a Baron M110 Forced Action Mixer. The materials are then emptied into a wheel barrow and trowelled down flat onto the prepared surface.
The sand that is included in the mix increases the structural strength of the resin surface and also provides anti-slip properties. Where extra grip is required, a light layer of glass grit can be sprinkled on top of the surface before the resin has cured.
