Resin bonded aggregate surfacing (or paving) systems have become very popular in recent years as people look for alternatives to asphalt (tarmac), concrete, block paving or loose gravel. A resin bonded surfacing system is also known colloquially as a 'coat and scatter' or a 'broadcast' system because of the technique of spreading the small sized aggregate dressing onto the wet resin surface, much like sowing (or 'broadcasting') seeds. The method of applying resin bonded paving means that the finished surface has a somewhat rugous texture as the individual stone particles stand proud of the resin binder. Resin bonded aggregate surfacing has the appearance of a loose gravel driveway but with the aggregate anchored by the resin.
Adtex resin bonded surfacing binder is a new generation, flexible, two part, solvent free polyurethane hybrid resin system which, when used in conjunction with selected aggregates, provides a complete resin bonded surfacing system. A wide variety of colours, shades and textures is achievable to contrast with or to compliment the surrounding environment.
Adtex resin bonded aggregate paving binder has been developed to provide an aesthetically pleasing, highly durable surface. It is particularly suitable for use in prestige developments to give a luxury ‘feel’ and in conservation areas where harmony with the surrounding environment is important. The wide range of natural aggregate colours and shapes available offers the potential to introduce design elements into landscaping and refurbishment projects. Various types of aggregates are available including gravel, pea shingle, crushed stone such as granite, basalt, quartz and man-made aggregates such as calcined bauxite can also be used.
Adtex resin is supplied in a neutral amber colour which compliments most aggregates used. However, Adbruf also supplies pigment packs to further enhance the colour of the aggregate used where required. The colour of the finished system is dependent on the choice of aggregate. The wide range of natural and manufactured aggregates is normally supplied in a screened, dried and bagged ready to use form in the grading 1 - 3mm approx. but larger or smaller sized aggregates can be used with a corresponding adjustment to resin film thickness. Aggregates must be sound enough to withstand the loads envisaged and it is vital that aggregates are clean, dry and free from dust so that good bonding is achieved. Adbruf supplies a full range of aggregates selected for their appearance and performance for use as part of an Adtex resin bonded paving system.
Some aggregates have a greater resistance to heavier vehicles, the repeated turning action of vehicles and tyre marking. In the case of power steered vehicles, it is not advisable to turn the steering unless the vehicle is in motion. If you are unsure about the suitability of a given aggregate under these conditions, it is recommended that Adbruf Technical Dept be contacted for advice.

Adbruf has taken every care to provide an accurate representation of the colour of our products. Aggregates are natural materials which are subject to changes in appearance and colour. Some of the aggregates supplied may occassionally contain minor concentrations of iron minerals which upon weathering may result in areas of rust spot staining. These iron minerals occur naturally within the aggregate deposits and Adbruf cannot be held responsible for any loss or damage suffered as a result of such staining. Please contact us to discuss your requirements further.
