Over time does a resin bound surface become difficult to navigate with wheelchairs and or walking sticks because it contains loose aggregate?
“We experience very little aggregate loss with RonaDeck Resin Bound Surfacing and this is usually associated with localised accidental damage.”
However, not all resin bound surfacing products have as high a resin content as RonaDeck Resin Bound Surfacing.”
Some surfacings contain 42-43% less resin; this affects detrimentally, the bond between the aggregate particles and bond to the substrate.”
Is aggregate loss never a problem with resin bonded surfaces because the aggregate is more securely held?
“Aggregate loss from resin bonded surfacing is more common than with resin bound surfacing, this can happen when the aggregate is scattered after the resin has begun to gel (resulting in inadequate penetration of the resin). It is recommended that RonaDeck Resin Bound Surfacing and RonaDeck Resin Bonded Surfacing are laid by Approved Contractors.”
Aggregate loss can also occur with resin bonded surfacing because of inappropriate choice of aggregate – heavier use requires coarser aggregate as rounder aggregates pick out more easily under heavy traffic.”
