  • Moisture curing tiling is important - especially in hot weather!

    The hot weather is thankfully little bit late this year, but the hot weather in Sydney yesterday is a timely reminder to provide shade and moisture curing to your tiling. We know that the optimal temperature for curing concrete is about 22 degrees. If shade is not provided, the surface temperature of a screed or tile can quickly exceed 50 degrees.

  • Tempo Apartments - 4 years on.

Joe Metlage of Casumo Constructions is the builder and still has his office located in the said building at 8 Bourke Street Mascot, in Sydney. It was pleasing to see that Efflock has performed extremely well, keeping efflorescence under control in the expansive common areas.
