VALTEX Resin Bound DIY Kit
The Vuba Resin Bound DIY Kit is an easy to use pre-weighed set of components for applying a resin screed without the need of specialist equipment or training.
This kit is perfect for patios, around garden features such as a hot tub, for creating landscaping features, around pools or ponds, or for driveways. It also works great for using as a practice for laying bigger areas with our large version of this kit!
This resin bound kit is also completely permeable, complying with SUDS regulations.
If you've been thinking about installing resin bound screeds for your own driveway, as a new business or as an addition to the services you offer as a gardener or grounds worker - this kit is a cheap, easy way to dip your toes and give it a try!
Wonders of the World Aggregate Blends:
The colour blends in sizes 1-5mm are part of our Wonders of the World aggregate range. A range of resin bound blends we developed especially to celebrate some of the most beautiful places on Earth! We hope you enjoy them as much as we do!
Each kit is supplied with the following:
1 x Resin (Pre-catalysed)
1 x Activator
1 x Dried Aggregates
The resin is supplied pre-catalysed to no requirement for additional mixing processes. The kit size is 26.88kg, and therefore will fit handily into most builders tubs. The kit can be mixed using a standard 'plasterers drill and paddle' - no requirement to hire a forced action mixer. We have tubs, paddles and other extra materials to purchase on our website also.
This handy DIY Resin Bound Kit is perfect for the DIY user or even professionals for smaller areas - no more messing around splitting units of resin bound on site. The coverage rates are as follows:
12mm = 1.25m2 per kit (Foot and Light Traffic)
15mm = 1m2 per kit (Vehicle Traffic)
18mm = 0.75m2 per kit (Very Heavy Vehicle Traffic)
If you're looking to lay a driveway that will endure heavy vehicle traffic & would like to use our 1 bag DIY kits - we recommend using blended aggregates at a ratio of 3:1 of 2-5mm stones and 1-3mm stones. This method aids the use of heavier traffic being withstood and enforces a stronger bond between the resin and aggregates. These blends are on the colour swatches to the right and are labelled 1-5mm.
The Resin Bound DIY Kit is an easy way of applying resin bound surfacing! We have Youtube guides, an instruction guide comes with each order, and we even spell it out on the labels!
1) Ensure the surface is dry, free from contamination and any edge profiles are fixed in place.
2) Pour the Resin A and Activator B into a mixing tub, and mix for 90 seconds to 2 minutes using a drill and paddle. Remember our resin bound DIY kits are already catalysed.
3) Slowly add the dried aggregate whilst mixing at the same time. Then, fully mix the resin mixture with the dried aggregates for 2 minutes.
4) Once mixed, transport the mixture to the working area, being careful to observe the 30 minute application pot life.
5) Ideally, you would have a second person carrying out this mixing process whilst the other one trowel applies the resin bound screed.
And there you go, endless DIY opportunities ahead of you with this incredible resin bound product!
