  • What is Efflorescence?

    Efflorescence occurs as cement and rain chemically react together producing calcium hydroxide. As the concrete dries, the calcium hydroxide reacts with the carbon dioxide in the atmosphere to produce calcium carbonate, which manifests as a white solid.

    Tobermore have combatted instances of efflorescence for over 20 years by curing products slowly in a vapour chamber for 12 hours resulting in products that are virtually efflorescence free.

  • How long should spills be left on the surface of an EasyClean product?

    For best results and to make cleaning as easy as possible we recommend that the exposure time of any spillages is kept to a minimum and that they are removed from the surface as soon as possible after contact, ideally within 2 hours.

  • Can I repair the EasyClean surface if it has been damaged?

    Tobermore can supply an EasyClean repair product which can be re-applied in the event of the surface of the paving becoming damaged. Please contact Tobermore for details and always follow the instructions supplied with the product.

  • How can I take care of EasyClean products?

    It is imperative that the surface of EasyClean products is treated with care at all times to avoid damage to the coating.

    • Do not use cleaning agents which contain strong solvents or acids.
    • Do not use high pressure or steam washers for cleaning.
    • Do not drag or scratch metal objects across the surface.

    Regular brushing of the paved area will help prevent weeds, moss and algae developing. However, if you need to use a product to remove these we recommend the following products as these will not damage the EasyClean coating. Always follow the manufacturer’s instructions when using these products.

    • Weeds: Weedol Pathclear or Roundup Fast Action Ready to-use Weedkiller
    • Moss/Algae: Antimoss by Anichem, Jeyes Fluid or Amillitox
  • How long does EasyClean coating last?

    This will be dependent upon usage and where the paving has been installed. However, with proper care EasyClean products can last up to five years.

  • What is the recommended bedding / base course for Tobermore concrete block paving?

    Concrete block paving is laid “flexibly” on a bed of sharp sand between 30 and 50mm deep. Concrete block paving can also be laid “rigidly” although this is less common. Laid “rigidly” means laid on a bed of cement mortar.
