As resin bound paving continues to ‘float’ its way overseas, questions arise regarding the performance under extreme temperatures. Whether it is hot or cold there is always a way to top off your project with a SureSet layer.
When planning to include SureSet Permeable Paving within your project here are a few things to bear in mind when it comes to the weather conditions:
SureSet Resin Bound Paving…
- Can only be laid in temperatures of 0⁰C and rising
- Cannot be laid during rain or snowfall
- has a controlled curing time
- can be laid anywhere in the world
- Resin bound paving will cure quicker in hot weather, this can be controlled accordingly but the installation will need to be consistent and without delay.
- Once the paving is cured, the temperature will not affect the use and durability of the product.
- The resin used is UV stable.
- Resin bound paving needs to be installed during dry conditions.
- Once cured, rainfall will permeate through the material which means no puddling or standing water.
- Frost will not cause damage to the paving itself, water which freezes between the voids of aggregate will sit within the surface until they are able to melt away.
- Salt can be used on the surface in icy conditions.
- Snow shovels can be used to clear the area, however snow ploughs are not recommended.
SureSet have carried out many installations across the globe in different climates such as:
- United Arab Emirates
- New Zealand
