Futura Stone is natural, hard-shell river gravel mixed with Futura Bond, a custom-blended epoxy resin, and applied to both old and new surfaces to form a permanent bond. Stone thickness will vary from 1/2 inch to 5/8 inch in thickness. It comes in six natural colors and is perfect for covering any solid substrate, from asphalt to concrete.
Here are the answers to some of the questions we are often asked about this durable, versatile surface treatment.

How does Futura Stone react to water?
Because it's porous, Futura Stone puts an end to the problem of puddles and standing water. It can be installed over drains. Water will flow through Futura Stone, or follow the natural drainage pitch of the substrate.
Where does Futura Stone come from?
Futura Stone is dredged from the Tuskaloosa River and is then chemically washed to remove sand, dirt and iron particles. The gravel is kiln-dried and sized, and finally bagged in polyvinyl bags to keep it moisture-free.
How long has Futura Stone been available?
Futura Stone's durability, strength and unrivaled low maintenance have made it a popular outdoor flooring choice worldwide for over twenty years.
Will Futura Stone crack?
Since Futura Bond creates an elastic bond between the particles of river gravel, the natural expansion and contraction of the material can take place without fear of the hairline cracks that form in concrete. The need for expansion joints is eliminated... so Futura Stone can be installed in an aesthetically pleasing, seamless application.
Will Futura Stone stain?
Substances such as grease, body oils, suntan oils, motor oils or gum will not adhere to Futura Stone.
How strong is Futura Stone?
Futura Stone, once applied and cured, fuses with the substrate and requires in excess of 8,000 pounds per square inch pressure to shear. Made to withstand heavy traffic, whether pedestrian or vehicular, it's ideally suited to both residential and commercial use.
Who can install Futura Stone?
Futura Stone is available from and installed by factory-authorized and trained, professional installers.
What kind of adhesive is used?
Futura Bond is a two-part epoxy resin developed by our own chemists in Altlanta, Georgia. During laboratory tests, it was proven to be stronger than the rock itself. It's the only stone-bonding epoxy recommended by Shell Oil Company for permanent, above-grade installation, and the only one custom-blended for river gravel. It's also the only epoxy bond to carry a manufacturer's guarantee of five years. It will adhere to any hard surface.
