LimePath EcoWalk UV System
Application

Suitable for pathways.

Description

LimePath EcoWalk UV is a combination of recycled rubber sourced from used vehicle tyres and natural aggregates, bound together with a specially formulated aliphatic HDI polyurethane resin, which will not deteriorate or become brittle when exposed to UV light when tested to BS EN ISO 16474-3 method A; see FeRFA guidance notes, 2020.

LimePath EcoWalk UV was developed to be a SuDS-compliant, permeable, resin-bound system that provides environmental benefits as a surface for pedestrian and low vehicular traffic, remaining slip-resistant, resistant to freeze-thaw, decorative, functional and seamless.

The environmentally designed open matrix allows water to drain through to the base, eliminating water ponding and allowing water to drain to planted areas or land drains. The ‘no binder’ system eliminates the need for macadam and/ or concrete bases, reducing the impact of additionally sourced materials, and greatly reducing transportation and emission.

Edgings created from brick, stone, timber or steel should be installed to retain and protect the system.

Resin and aggregate:

LimePath EcoWalk UV system uses an ultraviolet (UV)-resistant polyurethane resin, and will not yellow on exposure to UV light. This is a more attractive option than some other types of resin, which can yellow and dramatically alter the appearance of the finished surface. The resin is formulated using aliphatic HDI, which will not deteriorate nor become brittle when exposed to UV light when tested to BS EN ISO 16474-3 method A; see FeRFA guidance notes, 2020.

The performance and appearance of the finished surface is dependent on the aggregate used (see Limegate Solutions LimePath EcoWalk UV mix blend swatch sheet for colour options).

The LimePath EcoWalk UV System Aggregate blends have been designed to achieve strength, resilience, porosity and decoration.
