Decorative Resin Bound and Resin Bonded Surfacing



Optus Decorative Resin Bound and Resin Bonded Surfacing Systems 


Rejuvenate tired looking grey concrete or  bitumen giving it a new and pleasing look. 

Using natural stone or even recycled materials bound together with polyurethane resin, resin bound and resin bonded systems are simple to apply, durable and more in keeping with the natural environment than the bitumen or concrete over which they are applied.

Resin Bound and Resin Bonded systems have an appearance not dissimilar to loose gravel but without the disadvantages.









There are two basic types:


Resin Bonded

pic30A polyurethane slurry/adhesive is applied to the existing substrate and natural stone granules are scattered over the surface.

The resulting resin bonded surface is highly textured surface and, depending on the type of stone used, is also slip resistant.

Resin Bonded surfaces are less than 6mm thick with little with most of the resin concealed beneath the stone granules.  The resin acts only as a powerful adhesive.        







Resin Bound


A light stable polyurethane resin is mixed with natural stone and applied to the substrate as a 10-20mm thick screed. The resin bound surface produced is trowelled smooth often with a scatter of fine anti-slip material. Depth is unlimited and for specific applications, such as in tree pits is laid between 40 and 50mm thick.

Resin bound paving can have an open or closed structure depending on the need to support vehicle loads and the requirement to be free-draining (e.g.SUDS systems & Tree Pits).

Each particle of stone is coated in resin enhancing the natural colour of the stone and protecting it from staining.

These systems have the advantage over cement-based products in that they are both rapid curing and flexible, important when applied over asphalt or timber surfaces.
