Our newly released ResinBound Pro is in response to the market. It is now demanding a superior quality non-UV stable polyurethane resin for resin surfacing.
The resin bound sometimes referred to as “gravel glue” consists of a Part A and Part B; Part A being the polyurethane and Part B being the hardening agent. Traditionally with non-UV stable resins the Part B is extremely dark brown and tar like in colour. This then when mixed with the Part A and added to the aggregate will leave a sticky brown resin residue on your resin bound surface, which when cured will darken and blind the natural beauty of the aggregate. Over the following months, UV light will darken the surface to a degree where you cannot see the natural beauty and colour of the aggregate.
From market research with contractors up and down the UK, discolouration is a big issue, hence releasing the ResinBound Pro system.
What we have developed is an isocyanate formula that is more refined, leaving out coloured fillers. It is the coloured fillers that encapsulate the aggregate in a non-translucent coating.
The contractor will notice the clarity immediately when mixing the 2 parts together. The Pro series trowels better as it is not thick and sticky. Most non UV resin’s are. Ours offers an all round more forgiving float finish.
Although every non UV resin will taint over time, the Pro series will stay translucent. This means that when the surface starts to weather, it should do so in a uniformed fashion. This will give an all round better looking surface.
Each kit consists of a Part A and a Part B resin kit and 100kg of specialist aggregate, this as an average will cover around 4 square meters at 15mm depth.
In light of the seriousness of Coronavirus, and following government guidelines, we want to ensure the safety of our employees, stakeholders and the general public. It is therefore with a heavy heart, that we feel the most responsible thing to do, is close The Resin Mill for the time being. We hope that we will be open again soon and wish that everybody is safe and well.
