CORE BOUND - Resin Bound Aggregate Paving

four freedoms 2CORE Bound’s unique 2-layer design consists of a plastic honeycomb base that provides strength and durability, topped with your choice of dried aggregate set in resin. This system can be used for both pathways and driveways.

The combination of these 2 layers creates a strong surface that is aesthetically pleasing, 100% porous and wheelchair accessible. Most importantly CORE Bound can be laid without the need for a pre-existing hard surface, unlike traditional resin bound installations.

“A RESIN BOUND SURFACE THAT IS SUDS & DDA COMPLIANT”

We recommend using our CORE Commercial grid as the base layer for your resin bound surface, it is arguable one the strongest and most durable gravel stabiliser grids available in today’s market. See more about our CORE Commercial Grid HERE.

The CORE Commercial grid is filled flush with an inexpensive loose aggregate, this reduces the amount of resin and driedcore bound reduced aggregate required which will save you money! Then a 15mm resin bound overlay is installed for pathways/patios or a 20mm resin bound layer for driveways and access roads.

 

CORE BOUND IS SUITABLE FOR ALL TRAFFIC TYPESicons

CORE BOUND - Resin Kits

Our CORE BOUND Resin comprises of a two part polyurethane resin that when mixed with dried aggregate provides a beautiful looking permeable paving solution. We offer the resin in both a UV stable and Non UV stable edition. The UV stable Resin is slightly more expensive but enables you to choose from a wider range of colours when picking your dried aggregate.

The Non-UV stable resin has a tendency to adopt a slight yellow tinge after exposure to direct sunlight over a period of months, however with the majority of the dried aggregate range this slight yellow tinge is completely unnoticeable. The aggregates marked with (UV) are the ones that require the UV stable resin, these aggregates are therefore the slightly more expensive options.

Our resin is specially formulated for resin bound driveways, patios and pathways and is produced to the highest of standards and batch tested to ensure total consistency for every resin kit that is produced.

CORE BOUND - Reinforce Your Surface

When approaching the idea of a resin bound driveway, in the midst of choosing the perfect aggregate design for you, for those who want the extra reinforcement and strengthening aspect to their final wearing course – sand and glass are great options. Dependant on which aggregate you have chosen for your surface, there will be a porous element with any stone. However, the larger the aggregate, the more gaps there are. To bind and reinforce your surface, bags of sand ensure the surface is filled into all cracks and crevices yet still maintains the porous nature of the surface.

Once laid and nearly dried, opting for a scattering of fine glass over the top is a great option also to give your surface a slightly slip resistant property to it. The glass and sand all bind together within the aggregate to ensure that the structural integrity of the surface is the strongest that it can possibly be.
