Frequently Asked Questions
What is the difference between DriveExcel-UVR and Non-UV resin?
Our DriveExcel-UVR resin is an Aliphatic resin, as it is resistant to the suns UV rays it will not discolour. Not only does it remain clear in colour it also takes longer to harden meaning more time for the installer to lay the product and makes tools easier to clean and maintain. Most of our aggregate range will require DriveExcel-UVR resin.
Our Aromatic DriveExcel Non-UV resin is cheaper to produce and is less refined than it’s UVR counterpart. DriveExcel Non-UV will change colour over time turning a noticable yellowish colour. This resin can be used mainly with golden aggregates.
If you are uncertain which resin to choose for the job please do not hesitate to drop us a line.
Can I lay the resin bound system on any surface?
It is not advisable to lay resin bound aggregate on flag stones or uneven surfaces, even though there is some flexibility in the resin over time the aggregate would start to crack and break away. It is only advised to lay resin bound aggregate on concrete or tarmac surfaces to ensure a perfect finish with very little maintenance.
Once laid on top of a suitable base the resin bound aggregate is suitable for pedestrian and vehicular traffic making it perfect for domestic driveways as well as busier commercial areas.
Does the resin bound aggregate comply with SUDS legislation?
Yes. The blended mix of resin and aggregate forms a Sustainable Urban Drainage System (SUDS) for driveways, paths and tree pits. This means that the whole system is completely permeable allowing any water to drain away.
