Why choose permeable resin bound gravel for an outdoor area?
Marble carpet is made of marble aggregates (crushed pieces of stone such as marble or quartz) and a high-performance resin. The combination of rolled marble aggregates and castor oil-based resins offers many advantages for outdoor flooring compared to other types of flooring such as wood composites or tiles. It is becoming increasingly popular with both private and professional users for a number of reasons:
You have a wide choice of colours and the possibility to create patterns. Thus, you can give your outdoor space the look you want: light or dark, coloured or neutral, solid colour or mixed, pattern or logo. The resin used in the composition of the permeable resin bound gravel as a binder to combine the aggregate is a non-yellowing resin. This means that the product does not fade or change over the years.
Outdoor permeable resin bound gravel have drainage (to avoid stagnant water), anti-slip, frost-resistant and long-lasting properties. This outdoor flooring is perfectly resistant to cracks, scratches and other impacts, to bad weather and high temperatures thanks to the polyurethane resin that protects the aggregate.

Depending on the stain, you can also use specific products.
