What is UV Stable Resin?
The patios, paths, and driveways made of resin bound are durable and easy to maintain.
The main types used to make driveways are UV stable polyurethane or non-UV stabilised polyurethane. The UV stable resin is more expensive because it is more refined.
What’s the real distinction? It’s simple. UV stable polyurethanes are also known as aliphatic or aliphatic to scientists. They retain their clear colour, and are not affected by UV radiation. Non UV-UV polyurethanes become darker brown when exposed to UV light. UV is the best option if you want your resin-bound surface to remain the same colour. UV is important when using a light or mixed coloured aggregate. Otherwise the finished product will not match the original.
Non-UV may be acceptable if the aggregate mixture is yellow/brown. However unless the surface is fully exposed to UV, there will likely be some colour variation due shading. This is high risk because of parking cars, gates and trees as well as pots and pots. ).
According to some sources, Non-UV stable resins can be brittle due to UV exposure. However, the industry was originally completely Non-UV. It has been proven strong and durable. Non-UV resins are often stronger than UV stabilised resins. Use materials with a proven track record.
