Preparation of Resin Bound
Resin bound is a wearing or surface course, meaning it is a self contained layer covering a suitable base.
The basic premise is that the selected aggregates are mixed together with the resins and then spread, levelled and compacted over an existing base, creating a decorative surface which is exceptionally hard-wearing. The base, known as the substrate, needs to be firm and sound, with an ‘edge restraint’ of at least 15mm to contain the resin application.
The substrate is essential in providing the strength and load-bearing capacity of the surface and so a number of typical bases are used dependant on the planned application.
For pedestrian and low-speed occasional use:
• A minimum 150mm of compacted MOT type material with a 50-60mm of ‘open grade’ tarmac is the preferred substrate. This substrate should be installed a minimum of seven days prior to laying the resin.
• When installing a concrete substrate, a minimum of twenty eight days is required before laying resin (dependant on atmospheric condition).
• Any substrate that is laid in advance must follow the usual standards for surfacing construction, be firm, and laid within the accepted tolerances given to the type of material.
• Any minor deviation in the surface level of the substrate can be regulated within the resin bound surfacing as it is a full thickness layer. However, significant dips or low spots covering large areas, should be regulated with bituminous material in order to achieve the best values of the resin bound materials.
