What is a resin bound surface?

Resin-bound materials are made from natural stone aggregates, which have been bonded together with resin to give them a smooth finish. This makes your driveway and paths stronger, which will make your kerb appeal lasts longer. This is great news for driveways with dips. The material absorbs rainwater and allows it to drain.

Is there a difference between a resinbound and bonded surface? Bonded surface have a resin-bound base with an aggregate layer on top. This is then allowed to settle. The excess aggregate is removed to give the surface a natural, stony appearance. A bonded surface gives you the best of both the worlds.
