At Tobermore, we take pride in the outstanding performance of our products. Our continual investment in innovative technologies and people, has resulted in high performance products and market-leading solutions. It is this commitment which differentiates Tobermore.
We care about our impact on the global environment, so we invest in a robust programme of continuous environmental improvement including reducing the use of plastic waste and using renewable energy throughout our manufacturing processes.
PrimeTop is the high performance feature which differentiates Tobermore from standard concrete paving. Tobermore’s PrimeTop is manufactured with a premium, hard-wearing surface layer which adds significant performance benefits .
The PrimeTop surface layer has a dense composition of finer aggregates, hard sand and a higher percentage of cement. This hardened surface layer has enhanced strength and increased resistance to wear and tear, for both pedestrian and vehicular traffic.
The PrimeTop surface layer contains a high concentration of pigment creating vibrant colour and exceptional UV performance, leading to enhanced weathering properties.
We produce two different material mixes; the PrimeTop layer and a robust base layer formulated for optimum structural performance. Both layers are formed simultaneously, producing an inseparable bond that stands the test of time.
Every aspect of our product’s performance is researched and optimised to provide an excellent long-lasting appearance. In respect to the challenge of efflorescence, we have invested in manufacturing technology which enables us to produce virtually efflorescence free paving.
Efflorescence is perhaps the single biggest problem encountered with decorative concrete paving products. The cause of efflorescence is simply a chemical reaction between the cement in the concrete and rainwater causing the formation of calcium carbonate. This white, crystalline substance stains the surface and spoils the appearance of the paving.
In the Tobermore manufacturing process, we cure our products in a warm vapour atmosphere for 12 hours, which ensures that efflorescence is dramatically reduced. Moreover, the vapour curing also enhances the colour, improves the strength and cures the products much faster, allowing products to be used almost immediately.
The Ef-Stop protection includes an intense vapour curing process. Vapour penetrates to the core of the paver.
