Resin Bound Knowledge Base

Materials - Equipment

A resin bound surface is NOT a do-it-yourself system and installations should only be attempted by skilled professionals trained in using the required equipment and handling isocyanates.

The use of the correct equipment is essential is ensuring a successful installation. Star Uretech can provide all of the correct equipment required however the list below shows the best equipment choices and independent equipment suppliers:

Access barriers – 

Expandable safety barriers are our preferred choice as they are easier to transport.

Barrier tape – 

Barrier tape should be used only after initial cure for overnight protection as it is often invisible to anyone delivering letters or parcels.
