Decra®Set - Resin Bound


Decra®-Set – Resin Bound

HMS® Decra Set Resin Bound Paving is a permeable, SUDS compliant surface system. It is a decorative surfacing process consisting of specially selected natural, coloured or recycled aggregates bound with high performance UV stable resins to produce a long lasting smooth hard-wearing decorative finish.

Perfect For…

Decra Set Resin Bound Paving is suitable for use on driveways, paths, courtyards, walkways, parkways and roads. A wide range of aggregates are available, allowing you to confidently select the one appropriate to your requirements. Decra Set permeable decorative surfacing treatment stands apart from other domestic and commercial surface treatments, due to its water permeable quality. The materials and finishes used are in accordance with the government outlined Sustainable Urban Drainage System, or SUDS, meaning that excess and surface water can naturally drain through the product.

SUDS Compliant…

This offers excellent reduction in flood risks, overflowing of drains, and can be used as a decorative surfacing option for areas involving trees and foliage, as air and water can circulate through the material. Decra Set permeable decorative surfacing treatment from HMS is also recommended for areas around swimming pools and water features, and areas such as driveways with poor mains drainage or prone to standing water.

  • Decra®-Set requires laying to pre-existing edges
  • Decra®-Set will increase finished surface levels by the relative thickness of installation, which should be considered a) in the build-up and/or b) how this may inhibit gates, doors and drainage etc.
  • Decra®-Set is best applied to sound, clean and undamaged close graded asphaltic or tarmac surfacing.
