Bonded Resin Driveways in Tonbridge, Sevenoaks and Surrounding Areas

Our professional team at RD Driveways Ltd specialise in bonded resin installations, in addition to bound resin driveways and resin flooring applications for clients in Tonbridge, Sevenoaks and surrounding areas to choose from. We use high-quality BondTex to layer your outdoor surfaces, which are available in a wide-range of colours and aggregate types. Bonded resin driveways are the perfect way to decorate your property with premium standard, durable materials.

Bonded Resin Explained

Firstly, a polyurethane resin is applied to the substrate at your Tonbridge, Sevenoaks and surrounding areas property, which can easily adhere to wood, concrete, metal or tarmac once it has been treated by our team. A mixture of dried aggregates will be added to the resin to hold the materials in place. Unlike bound resin driveways and resin flooring, the bonded resin driveways are not completed with a smooth finish. Instead, the aggregates present a loose gravel appearance, due to its rough texture.

 

Tonbridge, Sevenoaks and surrounding areas clients can choose from 2 to 5mm or 1 to 3mm sized aggregates, depending on the preferred texture or level of traction from the protruding aggregates on the surface. Anti-slip and scratch-proof coatings can also be applied, enhancing the safety and durability of bonded resin driveways.

Preparing Your Foundations

 

The substrate or surface for bonded resin driveways at your Tonbridge, Sevenoaks and surrounding areas property needs to be clean, moisture-free and sturdy. Clients can ensure these preparations are carried out by allowing surfaces to dry over a four-week period. The structural integrity can also be tested with a core sample, which our team of experts can carry out on your behalf.

Using Sealants and Primers

 

  • We recommend that asphalt or macadam bases are fitted with close graded wearing course layers, measuring 6mm to 10mm
  • Asphalt or macadam requires a bond resin acrylic sealant, which prevents the resin from being absorbed and can smoothen uneven surfaces too
  • Clean, concrete bases should be applied with a bond resin primer coat, ideally rolled upon the surface

Applying Coatings for Bonded Resin Driveways

 

  • The BondTex resin is poured and evenly spread over the surface of the base, depending on the size of aggregates being used
  • Gravel and aggregates are then added to the resin coating which bonds into place
  • More aggregate materials can be scattered to fill in any large gaps of resin
  • After 24 hours, the resin will harden, allowing the surface to be swept clean and clear of any loose aggregates for a tidy finish

Homeowners in Tonbridge, Sevenoaks and surrounding areas will benefit from a beautifully textured driveway, which offers an alternative aesthetic to bound resin driveways and resin flooring.
