Before & After RonaDeck Resin Bound Surfacing
Types of Resin: UV Stable and Aromatic
In resin-bound surfacing, there are two types of polyurethane resin to consider. UV-stable resins, such as those used by Ronacrete, retain their original colour even after exposure to sunlight. This is essential for preserving the appearance of the aggregate. On the other hand, aromatic resins are better suited for indoor applications due to their lack of resistance to UV light. When exposed to the sun, these resins can become dull, less elastic, and prone to cracking.
Recommended Applications and Traffic Capacity
Resin-bound surfacing is perfect for foot traffic and light vehicles up to 7.5 tonnes. It is ideal for car parks (excluding shopper's car parks), driveways, podium decks, terraces, public squares, courtyards, footpaths, and pool surrounds. However, it is not recommended for heavy traffic or areas with larger vehicles. Choosing resin-bound surfacing ensures a durable and visually appealing solution for your outdoor spaces.
