Our Paving Range:

Wet Cast Pavers
Wet Cast Pavers - ViBlock

Wet cast pavers or Alfresco pavers are made by pouring wet
concrete mix into moulds and curing to reach a final product.

  • Pavers need to be mortored into place with a solid grout therefore we recommend they are laid by a professional
  • The wet cast pavers offer a high end look that can work well around pools or in courtyards
  • Viblock Concrete pavers are manufactured from natural materials and comply with the appropriate NZ standards for strength and slip resistance.
  • Storage and laying guidelines are attached to every pallet and should be read carefully upon receipt of the pavers.
  • Viblock recommend that once laid and grouted, pavers are sealed. Professional advice should be sought before sealing.
  • Pavers age and weather at different rates depending on environmental conditions.
  • Every effort is made during the manufacturing process to ensure efflorescence or mottling problems do not occur, however Viblock have no control over the environmental conditions the pavers are subject to after purchase.
Dry Cast Pavers

  • While colour variance is rare pallets should be blkended when laying to ensure a consistent look

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.

Detailed Definition
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.

Pinto Effect
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.
