Resin Bonded Gravel

Resin Bonded Gravel

You may not have heard of bonded gravel before but will have seen the product in everyday use without perhaps realising it. Epoxy resin bonded gravel has been around for over ten years in the UK and even longer in the United States. It is used for cycle paths, pavements, bus lanes and various highway solutions. Using the same methods, we create extremely durable and attractive surfaces that give the effect of gravel without the drawbacks of weed growth, gravel movement and high maintenance.

Bonded gravel has previously been considered too expensive for common use but has recently become more affordable, due to increased competition from manufacturers, which made the resins more economical, it’s now available as a cost effective option for the discerning householder.

Graveltech’s bonded and bound gravel surfaces provide a very attractive, hard wearing and low maintenance surface for driveways and pathways. However, the use of the latest in resin technology and the wide range of natural aggregate materials available also make it ideal for use on the following applications.

  • School pathways and play grounds
  • Internal Flooring – bathrooms, kitchens and utility rooms
  • Swimming pool, Spa & Hot tub surrounds
  • Roof terraces
  • Tree pits & Landscaping schemes
  • Bridleways & Footpaths
  • Cyclepaths & Foot bridges
  • Heritage sites & Pedestrian areas
  • Car parks & Theme parks
  • Roads & Car Parks
  • Marinas and boat yards
  • Retail units
  • Housing & Office developments

Benefits of Bonded Gravel

Bonded Gravel can often be installed without any excavation work making it a very cost effective solution and it will even protect and prolong the life of an existing concrete or tarmac driveway. The other key important features are that it is a natural product that looks fantastic requires no maintenance with almost no weed growth and is not affected by sunlight or staining from oil, petrol or diesel spills.

It has many benefits as a multi functional surface including:

  • Aesthetically Pleasing – all the benefits of loose gravel without the high maintenance
  • Durable and hard wearing with a lifespan of around 10 to 15 years
  • UV Resistant, meaning it will not fade in sunlight like other surfaces
  • Stain Resilient to oil and the like and can be power-washed
  • Very low maintenance and weed resistant
  • Fast curing for minimum disruption during installation
  • Extensive range of natural and recycled aggregates provide wide choice of colour and texture
  • Anti-slip – ideal for families, the elderly, and people with disabilities.
  • Can be applied to existing surfaces such as concrete, asphalt, timber and steel giving a beautiful finish to any home.
  • No excavation necessary in the majority of cases
  • Local aggregates can be sourced (subject to availability)
  • Able to create interesting patterns such as corporate logos, house numbers or motifs.
  • Natural coloured aggregates will look new for years to come.
