    Addagrip to exhibit at Ecobuild – the world’s biggest event for sustainable design

    The leading resin bound and bonded surfacing manufacturer, Addagrip, is once again exhibiting at Ecobuild - the world’s biggest event for sustainable design, construction and the built environment. This year, the exhibition is taking place at ExCeL in London from Tuesday 5 March to Thursday 7 March 2013 (Addagrip is on stand S1850).

    Addagrip (which is part of the Terraco Group, also exhibiting at Ecobuild – on stand N753) is using the exhibition to launch its new Terrabound Resin Bound Surfacing System. This new commercial grade resin bound surfacing product has been introduced to provide a more cost effective solution for both large and small projects.

    Terrabound is available in a limited range of natural aggregates, the finished surface offers a seamless, porous, hard wearing, low maintenance and decorative surface. The product is ideal for commercial projects, including landscaping schemes, housing developments, parks, car parks and access roads.

    “Ecobuild is the not-to-miss exhibition for everyone interested in sustainable building and we are delighted to be part of the event,” says Roger Critchley, Managing Director of Addagrip. “We’ve got lots to share with visitors, which we are sure will give them plenty to think about when it comes to both interior and exterior surfaces.”

    Addagrip products have been used in a variety of high profile projects including Media City in Salford, Greenwich Naval Museum, the British Museum and Royal Holloway College.

    Addagrip is also highlighting the Addabound Resin Bound Surfacing System – a new addition to the Addagrip resin bound surfacing range, providing a smooth, hard wearing and low maintenance porous/semi porous surface. The decorative surfacing option incorporates Addagrip’s latest UV stable resin technology, offering increased renewable resin content, strength and improved surface flexibility.

    “We know that visitors to Ecobuild will appreciate this particular product, as it uses a range of natural and recycled aggregates with a minimum of 25% recycled content of aggregate and filler,” says Roger.

    Also being highlighted on the Addagrip stand will be:

    The Addaset Resin Bound Surfacing System - a smooth, hard wearing and low maintenance porous/semi porous surface using a range of natural aggregates. The surface is suitable for driveways, footpaths, pedestrian precincts, playgrounds, car parks and access roads.

    The Addacolor Resin Bound Surfacing System is ideally suited to those projects that require a splash of colour both inside and out, such as footpaths and school playgrounds.

    The Addastone Resin Bonded Surfacing System provides an attractive, hard wearing and low maintenance surface by bonding or fixing loose gravel aggregates to concrete, asphalt, wood or metal.

    The Addastone Tree Pit System is designed to provide an attractive and aesthetically pleasing porous paving system using a variety of natural or recycled aggregates. The open texture achieved provides a highly porous resin bound surface, allowing tree roots access to both air and water penetration.

    “Environmental considerations are important to us at Addagrip and our ongoing programme of research and development is continually striving to develop a product range that is as environmentally friendly as possible,” says Roger. “We are excited about sharing our latest products at Ecobuild.”
