Along with many colours, pavers can be placed in several patterns and matched with difference sizes to achieve a bespoke aesthetic.
Over the lifetime of a pavement very littles maintenance is required and easily repaired if issues arise.
The use of a permeable paver along with appropriate layering system is a very effective way to manage stormwater.
Pavers are cured so will handle all conditions once laid.
Slip resistance of pavers can be controlled to achieve New Zealand standards.

Efflorescence: What you need to know
Efflorescence is a naturally occurring phenomena associated with all Concrete products. The chemistry involved is complex, involving several factors over which neither the manufacturer, the contractor, nor the end user has total control.
At Viblock we are very much aware of efflorescence and the problems it can create. Our manufacturing processes have all but eliminated the occurrence of efflorescence in our products, however unfortunately, we have no control over the environment in which our Masonry & Pavers are used.
In order to reduce the chances of efflorescence occurring, it is important that purchases care for the products from delivery to sealing (refer Viblock Care of Masonry, Pavers sheets and the paving laying guide).
Three steps to reduce the chance of efflorescence occurring
- Products must be stored correctly before laying.
- Laying of Blocks and pavers should be completed by a licensed trade professional.
- Sealing should also be carried out by a trade professional
Efflorescence should it occur in no way effects the structural integrity of our Masonry Blocks and Pavers.
Efflorescence is a crystalline deposit of salts, usually white, that forms on or near the surface of concrete, masonry and cementitious products. It forms when soluble salts are dissolved by water migrating through the cementitious material and then precipitated at its surface by chemical reaction or by evaporation of the salt solution. Efflorescence usually consists of carbonates of calcium, sodium and potassium originating from the cement, but can also consist of salts from the surrounding environment. Iron oxides from the concrete can give the efflorescence a yellow/brow tint.
Calcium Carbonate is the most common form of efflorescence.
In simple terms, Calcium Carbonate is a by-product resulting from an interaction between the cement used to manufacture the paving and the natural environment, which includes the ground, the weather, and the atmosphere. The result is a deposit or ‘salt’ that appears on the surface of the paving. There’s no single, definitive appearance – it is sometimes powdery, sometimes scummy: sometimes it’s hazy and indistinct; sometimes it’s sharp, crisp and obvious. Sometimes it covers large expanses of paving, sometimes it affects individual units, and sometimes it affects just half or two-thirds of a paving unit. It seems to affect dark hued paving’s more than those of lighter tones, but the truth is that it’s just more noticeable against a darker background. However, it is almost always white in colour.
The Pinto Effect is similar to efflorescence in so much it is bought about by moisture reacting with the chemical components of concrete. Research has shown there does not appear to be one common cause. Typically, Pinto or mottling occurs on pavers and shows as either a dark circle or discoloured patches. Like efflorescence it is often random. Also, like efflorescence the chances of Pinto occurring on your pavers is reduced by following the three steps re storage, laying and sealing.
