product overview

Apollo Resin (A9493 A/B) is a solvent-free two-component aromatic polyurethane resin kit, developed specifically for creating hardwearing aggregate surfacing or flooring. It is used for bonding a wide range of dried aggregates to most common substrates, including steel and concrete, for anti-skid and decorative purposes. The system is suitable for refurbishment and new build projects for external and internal applications, including driveways, footpaths and parks.

featured properties


Suitable for areas with high vehicular traffic: tests prove it is extremely durable. The Apollo Resin-Bonded Economical Aggregate Surfacing Kit is suitable for a wide range of applications, but is particularly ideal for driveways, footpaths and parks. In-house tests prove that this system is extremely durable and can withstand significant stress due to its high composite strength.

Minimises overall project time: fast-curing system. At Apollo, we understand that minimising project time is essential, and the Apollo Resin-Bonded Economical Aggregate Surfacing Kit has been developed with this in mind. Our fast-curing system is able to withstand heavy foot and vehicular traffic in as little as 18-24 hours, upon full cure.

Establishes excellent moisture-tolerance quickly: can withstand moisture in as little as three hours. Most contractors require an aggregate flooring system that can withstand various weather conditions. In-house tests prove that the Resin-Bonded Economical Aggregate Surfacing Kit is tolerant of moisture in as little as three hours of being laid (at 20°C).

Ideal for refurbishment projects: can be laid over existing flooring. The Apollo Resin-Bonded Economical Aggregate Surfacing Kit is suitable for creating completely new flooring or overlaying existing flooring. It can be quickly and easily laid on top of concrete or steel, which makes it an economical choice for refurbishment projects. 

***NOTE

Resin bonded surfacing is typically laid on a solid base of concrete. Steel and timber surfaces are also suitable but oily woods such as Cedar should be avoided.

Resin bonded surfacing is not porous and must be applied to non porous bases, with adequate falls in place to allow free drainage. The choice of aggregate can be critical particularly when the surfacing is subjected to heavy vehicular traffic. 1-3mm bauxite aggregate is preferred for vehicular traffic. Granite, basalt, flints and quartz aggregates may be used for lighter trafficked areas.

Developed for

  • Driveways
  • Footpaths
  • Parks
     

Instructions for use:

Surface preparation:

1. Concrete substrates should have maximum relative humidity of 75% before applying the resin bonded surfacing.

2. Prepare the concrete by mechanical means to produce aclean, dry and lightly textured surface, free from latencies and loose friable materials; then prime with Apollo (A1408) and allow to dry.

Mixing:

1. Mix components A & B at a ratio of 3:1 by weight.

2.Mix the resin thoroughly with a slow-speed high-torque drill and paddle for approximately 60 seconds.

3. Catalyst can be added to the system to speed up the cure-time.

Application:

1. Mask area to be coated with duct tape.

2. Apply the mixed resin with a notched spreader or roller atatypical rate of:

  • 1.5mm thickness, 11m2per 20kg kit using 1-3mm aggregate
  • 1.0mm thickness, 16.5m2per 20kg kit using 0.9-1.4mm aggregate
  • Application rate will increase with larger aggregate sizes.

3. Fully blind the resin with the chosen size of kiln dried aggregate. This must be carried out immediately after the resin has been applied, with the resin still liquid.

4. Remove the duct tape before the resin gels; allow the resin to cure for 18-24 hours @ 20°C before trafficking.

5. Remove excess aggregate by sweeping or vacuum.

NB: Do not apply resin bonded surfacing if rain, fog or high humidity is expected during application and throughout the cure the of the system. Do not apply if the resin or aggregate has become wet or damp.

Coverage Calculator

Use our adhesive coverage calculator to find out how much you need for your project.

Based on your m2 you need:

ltr of Apollo A9493 Polyurethane Resin.

Including 10% wastage.

How do we calculate this?

1ltr of Apollo A9493 Polyurethane Resin covers 0.75m2. You require enough product to cover m2 including 10% wastage. m2 / 0.75m2 per ltr = ltr of product.
