Pathways & Driveways
Resin bonded and resin bound surfaces are, without doubt, excellent value for your money, providing product longevity whilst adding worth to your property. Virtually maintenance free for 10-20 years, these surfaces are anti-slip, attractive, resistant to weeds and available in a range of colour shades. Thortech can provide impressive and decorative resin bonded and resin bound coatings for drives, pathways, patios and other areas where a safe and attractive surface is required.
We use the Thorgrip system to provide the most aesthetically-pleasing and reliable results. The product consists of a mixture of tough but flexible polyurethane resins with calcined bauxite, a highly abrasive resistant aggregate. Thorgrip also has a huge advantage over many other systems in that it cures very quickly. Disruption is therefore kept to a minimum and the surface is safe for full use within two to three hours of application, depending on temperature. Thorgrip further has the ability to cure at low temperatures and has excellent adhesion qualities preventing surfaces from embrittling with age.
The material is far more versatile than concrete, block paving and tarmac because it is durable and can be laid in a variety of colours and designs to suit your requirements. It is also popular because of its simple application – it can be laid straight onto any solid foundation, for example, your existing block paving, concrete or tarmac driveway or patio.
The Thorgrip system even lends itself perfectly to pathways and drives as it’s 100% resistant to oil, de-icing salts, water and fuel. This means the substrate is protected, leading to a longer lifespan and a more pleasant, cleaner looking surface for years to come.
