The unique advantage with using Efflock for efflorescence protection is that it is an additive which is compatible with all cement based products, meaning that in tiling, it will prevent efflorescence leaching from tile adhesive and grout as well as tile beds.
We have sought many tile adhesive manufacturers' approval to combine Efflock with their products, and we're delighted that the Sydney based company Novatex Products are the first company to lend their support.
Novatex Products have recently completed testing with their range of proprietary cement based products. Their testing has concluded that Efflock can be used in their products and does not have any detrimental effect towards the performance and final strength.
We have always recommended that Efflock be combined with adhesive and grout in tile installations, but understandably, a number of tile stores and tilers have been hesitant to follow that advice, fearing they will void product warranties. Unfortunately, in a number of cases, efflorescence has appeared from the layer of those very materials that have been installed without using Efflock.
We are very pleased to have Novatex Products' support, and we look forward to reciprocating by directing our growing customer base towards using their products which have official approval. As a further demonstration of Novatex Products' good will, director Gorizio Di Censo made a point of indicating they are in complete support of Efflock obtaining testing and endorsement by other brands. So the invitation is here! Please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
