New Concepts, Research and Development

SureSet was established in 1997, because three men; Peter Watts, Kevin Weston and Mike Newton embarked on an innovative approach to selecting and designing materials to produce a high quality, cold laid resin bound paving.

Today, Kevin is our Chief Executive, Peter our Founder and Mike is retired and co-owner of StoneSet permeable paving in Australia.

Founded on innovation and research, we continue to invest in research and development.

All staff at SureSet are involved in coming up with ideas for new products and our wonderful Technical Team continuously research the use of recycled materials. We also pride ourselves to listening and responding to customer feedback and ideas.

While some of our trials are successful and added to our ever-expanding product range, not everything gets to market!

Past trials include (among other things)…

• Recycled CD’s
• Shells
• Bricks
• Laying resin bound paving vertically
• Recycled ceramics; from toilets
• PVC cable waste
• Recycled tyres
• Thermo material that changes colour when heated
• Mixing pearlescent pigments with our recycled glass
• Materials that glow in the dark
• LED edging


When SureSet was established in 1997, our approach to resin bound gravel was unique. Due to an increase in flooding and public awareness of flood prevention, the permeable paving market has rapidly expanded.

Our investment into research and development has enabled us to remain one of the UK’s resin bound companies.

You can rest reassured that we are totally committed to investing in research and development and increasing our range of products.
