resin bound surfacing

Looking for a surfacing solution that has the perfect balance between strength and style? Resin bound surfacing’s easy-care, durable & aesthetic properties means it’s perfect for roads, public footpaths and driveways. 

What is Resin Bound Surfacing?

Resin bound surfacing is a modern alternative to more traditional surfacing solutions such as concrete, tarmac and loose gravel. It has the strength of concrete and the aesthetically pleasing appeal of natural gravel or stone.

It uses UV stable resin to bind loose aggregates, which results in a surfacing solution to rival concrete. What’s more, it comes in a variety of colour options and is great for road, footpath and car park demarcation. 

Furthermore, resin bound surfacing is SUDS compliant and allows excess surface water to drain through to the ground. Therefore, it is often the surfacing choice for local authorities, especially with the increase in flooding over recent years.

Decra®Set From HMS

We combine natural aggregate with high performance UV stable resins to produce a surface that is:

  • SUDS compliant

Stands apart from the crowd

HMS’s Decra®Set surfacing stands apart from other commercial and domestic surface treatments, thanks to its water permeable properties. As a result, air can circulate and excess water can naturally drain through the surface.

Further more, all resins used in our bound paving products are manufactured and tested in the same way as the market-leading brands and are of the exceptional quality. Every HMS resin bound system is tested for strength, durability, flexibility and SUDS compliance.

Resin Bound Surfacing SUDS Compliance

Decra®Set complies with the government’s Sustainable Urban Drainage System (SUDS), which enables surface water to permeate the ground. Therefore, in built-up and urban areas it helps to reduce flooding and relieves pressure on mains drainage systems. 

As a result, HMS’s resin bound surfacing system is perfect for:

  • landscaping areas that include trees and foliage
  • areas around swimming pools and water features
  • driveways with poor mains drainage
  • areas prone to standing water
