Efflock is excellent for use in new construction to prevent efflorescence and damp problems in tiled patios and wet areas, but can be used in many different applications such as render and brick mortar. It can sometimes however, be the wrong approach to use durable mixes such as Efflock in certain heritage conservation, as salt can actually be driven towards other important building fabric.
