LimeBound UV Resin Bound Surfacing

You are here:

LimeBound UV Stable Resin Bound System is a resin bound aggregate surface for pedestrian and vehicular traffic which is permeable (SuDS compliant), decorative and functional, seamless and slightly flexible. The open matrix allows water to drain through to the base, eliminating water ponding and allowing water to drain to planted areas or land drains. The surfacing may be applied to SuDS compliant bases and sub-bases, reducing the impact of urban development on flood risk and allowing water to flow into water courses. Edgings created from brick, stone, timber or steel should be installed to retain and protect the resin bound surfacing. LimeBound UV Stable Resin Bound System is a two component mixture of the highest grade Aliphatic and latest technology ingredients which binds a range of selected decorative kiln-dried aggregates.

LimeBOUND UV Stable Resin Bound System provides an attractive porous surface which is strong enough for foot and light vehicle traffic up to 7.5 tonnes.

Resin & aggregate

LimeBound Resin Bound Surfacing Resin is UV resistant resin and will not yellow on exposure to UV light. This is a more attractive option than some other types of resin which can yellow and dramatically alter the appearance of the finished surface. The resin is formulated using aliphatic HDI which will not deteriorate or become brittle when exposed to UV light when tested to BS EN ISO 16474-3 method A The performance and appearance of the finished surface is dependent on the aggregate used (see LimeGate Solutions LimeBound mix blend swatch sheet for colour options). The LimeBound Resin Bound Surfacing Aggregate blends have been designed to achieve strength, resilience, porosity and decoration.

Please Note:

Natural aggregates may contain small amounts of iron which can produce rust staining when exposed to air and water; standard LimeBound Resin Bound Surfacing blends contain aggregates selected for infrequency of incidence of staining but iron may be present in any natural aggregate. The presence of iron cannot be identified before use and Limegate Solutions cannot accept responsibility for any loss or damage suffered as a result of staining.

LimeBound contractors

LimeBound Resin Bound Surfacing is a specialist product and must only be applied by specialist applicators. Do not apply or allow it to be applied by contractors who do not possess the necessary experience.

Working times & temperatures

Working time is affected by temperature; at temperatures above the maximum recommended 25°c the pot life and working time may be insufficient to allow a wet edge to be maintained. Do not therefore proceed when product and/or air temperature exceeds recommendations. The air temperature must be monitored during application and work should stop when the temperature exceeds recommendations. Care must be taken to keep materials as cool as possible in warm weather. At low temperatures 5°C and below the resin will not flow sufficiently to achieve a smooth finish and work should not proceed.

Substrate requirements

LimeBound UV Stable Resin Bound System is designed for foot traffic and occasional vehicle traffic such as on domestic driveways, residential developments with light domestic traffic or car parking bays. It is however, not a road surface for heavy volumes of domestic or commercial traffic. Heavier vehicle traffic, including heavy impact and high point loading will damage the surface and may result in failure. Due to the destructive scuffing forces created by power steering (e.g. three point turns) in car parks or on driveways where cars will repeatedly turn within a confined area, localised wear is more likely.

Site attendance

When on site Limegate Solutions representatives are if asked, able to give a general indication of the correct method of installing Limegate Solutions products. It is important to bear in mind that Limegate Solutions is a supplier and not an application contractor and it is therefore the responsibility of the contractor and his employer to ensure he is aware of the correct practices and procedures to ensure the correct installation of the product and that liability for its correct installation is with the contractor and not with Limegate Solutions Ltd.
