Resin-bound driveways are created using a resin bound surfacing solution. This is made by mixing aggregates with a clear resin binder, which is then applied to the surface for a smooth finish. This is different from resin-bonded surfacing. In this process, the resin is applied directly to a surface and aggregate is scattered on top. This creates a less smooth, textured finish.
NatraTex vs. Resin Bound Surfacing
An alternative to resin-bound surfacing, NatraTex is an asphalt surface course. Featuring similar characteristics to that of conventional macadam, it is a cost-effective, durable, and multi-purpose surfacing material that can be used for driveways and roads in housing developments, pedestrian walkways, decorative landscaping and more. What’s more, it can be applied in a wide range of colours and circumstances to create a smooth, usable, resilient finish.
Resin-bound surfacing is often chosen due to its decorative finish and performance. Both NatraTex Colour & NatraTex Cotswold offer unrivalled adaptability and durability. What’s more, it’s suitable for a range of application from parks to public areas and residential settings.
NatraTex for Driveways and Paving
As a supplier and installer of NatraTex surface courses, we recognise that new properties and housing developments need to look the part to gain popularity. Driveways, paving and garden design are all ways to achieve that while creating an appealing and useable outdoor space for buyers.
In these cases, resin bound surfacing is a popular choice. However, there are some drawbacks to using this. Many of the resins and other components used in resin bound driveways can be potentially harmful to the users and the environment. Which is where NatraTex products differ. Our fully bound asphalt surface courses are not only durable and good looking, but they are also not harmful to the environment and can add value to a property while looking great.
NatraTex has been used in a wide variety of new property developments overseen by companies such as Bovis Homes, Liden Homes and Belway Homes.
