Resin Rox installers resin driveway
Cleaning your equipment after a resin driveway install is vital. Your resin installation equipment can be expensive when you first set up your resin services; however, with proper care and maintenance, they can last many years, making it a worthwhile investment to your business. Here are some of our tips and tricks you can use to keep your resin tools in tip-top condition.

What resin cleaning solution should I use?

After our many years of experience, we know these resin tips and tricks to give you the best finish for your new resin surface. We have seen many water-based resin cleaning solutions on the market which can impede the resin’s curing features and time. When looking online, there are plenty of cleaning solutions available. However, we recommend white spirit; it’s affordable, available, and easy to use. The low water content of white spirit is perfect for resin surfaces. Be mindful of water-based cleaning solutions as they can be more hassle than they’re worth. Resin Driveway Installer

How do I clean my resin driveway tools?

Two of the best cleaning solutions for resin are white spirit and cooking oil, both extremely cost-effective and easily accessible. We at The Resin Mill choose to use white spirit due to its low water content. Simply soak a sponge or cloth in either solution and regularly wipe tools such as your trowels, drills, spazzle or rake to prevent a build-up of resin and aggregates on your tools and keep a smooth unhindered finish to your resin surfaces.
