How is Addagrip Terraco Ltd helping to develop a UK Resin Bound industry standard?

As the UK’s leading Resin Bound supplier, with 37 years’ experience in the resin manufacturing industry, we felt strongly that some form of standard for the Resin Bound Surfacing industry was needed. In January 2016 we proudly became the first and only Resin Bound surfacing supplier to date to have gained BBA Agrément certificates for three of our Resin Bound surface finishes:

Addaset – based on a UV stable aliphatic polyurethane resin

Addaset is our SuDS compliant BBA approved Resin Bound porous surfacing system suitable for car parks, access roads, courtyards, driveways, playgrounds, patios, pathways and swimming pool surrounds. The product is porous, low maintenance, seamless, hard wearing and suitable for residential and commercial projects.  Download Addaset BBA Certificate

Addabound - based on a UV stable aliphatic polyurethane resin

Addabound is our SuDS compliant BBA approved Resin Bound porous surfacing system which has all the benefits and applications of Addaset but with the addition of recycled content (minimum 25%) in its blends.   Download Addabound  BBA Certificate

Terrabound - based on an Aromatic polyurethane resin (yellowing)

Terrabound is our SuDS compliant BBA approved commercial grade Resin Bound porous surfacing system made with a darker aromatic polyurethane resin and darker aggregate blends, making it ideal for those projects requiring a darker aggregate finish at a competitive price. 

We are aware that some sources question the use of aromatic polyurethanes resins on the basis that they can yellow/darken when exposed to UV light.   Terrabound, based on an Aromatic polyurethane resin, has achieved BBA certification after being subjected to a range of independent tests and site visits to inspect projects that were installed over the last 6 years. It is an ideal system for commercial schemes where darker aggregate blends are preferable and long term darkening of the surface is not an issue for consideration compared with the cost savings achieved by using Terrabound.   Download Terrabound BBA Certificate

Why should I use a BBA approved Resin Bound system?

The British Agrément Certificates provide reassurance to users, designers, insurers and regulators and are recognised throughout the UK by architects, engineers and building control personnel as a mark of quality, safety and reliability. 

The BBA's impartial information complements Addagrip’s own technical data on the performance of the products certified. Once the certificate has been awarded, regular monitoring is carried out by the BBA to maintain the Certificate’s validity which is followed by a comprehensive review every three years.

It is our opinion that an independent body is vital to keep and improve the quality of Resin Bound Surfacing in our developing industry. The BBA route as used for the High Friction Resin Bonded Surfacing to improve quality is we believe a very positive step forward. We may be the first to have achieved the British Agrément Certificates but we hope others will follow.
