ULTRA

High Performance, resin bound surfacing

Introduction

StarScape ULTRA is a high-performance, UV resistant, 100% aliphatic isocyanate adhesive used for decorative, resin bound aggregate surfacing applications.
 

A completed installation provides a highly durable, attractive alternative to traditional exterior flooring types such as paving, concrete, gravel and bituminous surfaces. StarScape ULTRA is a clear resin which is mixed with decorative aggregates and laid as a screed at varying depths depending on the base type and intended use of the completed surface.
 

Incorporating the latest in polyurethane technology, StarScape ULTRA’s aliphatic formulation is unique and ensures a long-lasting installation that will not discolour or become brittle over time.

Application Types

StarScape ULTRA is developed for use as a high performance, decorative paving system. Commonly used on driveways, pathways, patios, conservatory & pool surrounds, access roads and most domestic/commercial exterior surfacing applications.

There are a number of differing specifications for the use of StarScape ULTRA and these are defined by the desired end use. The construction of a footpath will typically require a less substantial base and a lower resin bound application depth than that of a surface which will receive vehicular traffic.

StarScape ULTRA is commonly referred to as a ‘surface course’ which is a finishing layer applied over a base. The StarScape resin is mixed together with an approved blend of aggregates and this screed is then spread, levelled and compacted to create a hard wearing, decorative surface. The base course (typically permeable concrete or open-graded tarmacadam/bitmac) needs to be dry, solid and free from cracks or damage. As the resin is a screed laid at a minimum 18mm depth, 'edging' is required to contain the surfacing.
