StoneSet resin is UV stable making it the most suitable for long life and sustained colour.
Flexible and strong, our unique blend allows for flexibility which, is crucial when laying StoneSet around tree roots and when overlaying concrete.
The StoneSet resin is strong enough to hold the stone particles in place while maintaining optimum void content to allow for permeability. The resin does not soften in hot weather nor does it crack or lift in freezing temperatures.
StoneSet can be designed to meet all slip resistance standards. We can guide you to a StoneSet mix which will suit each application. For example, for a steep slope we would recommend using a crushed rock, which has a great long-lasting slip resistance. We incorporate sand into the mix, which not only improves strength, appearance and ease of laying, but it provides an instant slip resistance and takes that immediate shine off the surface. We cast glass dust or sand over the curing surface to provide an instant anti-slip finish.
We always ensure the optimum resin content for the aggregate blend and expected traffic, specific to each project. Binder content is key – too much resin makes the permeability suffer and handling is difficult. Too little resin results in diminished strength, flexibility and durability. Particles of aggregate can work loose if insufficient resin is applied. We have this covered by sending pre- weighed and batched materials to site so the ratio is always perfect.

CREATING DESIGNS THROUGH STENCILS
Logos, numbers, letters, art work and more… There is no limit to the design possibilities with StoneSet paving. The designs are either created using a template or a permanent edge detail, depending on the design. Call us to discuss any ideas and we can advise how best to re-create the design in your paving.
Use StoneSet construction advice to ascertain the correct layer depth and the best size stone for your application.
We are always available to help with all aspects of StoneSet paving. We have specification advice sheets for all applications and are happy to provide copies of any safety data sheets that are required for site inspection.
