Building on the success of its Efflorein® admixture for concrete, Melbourne-based specialty colourant and construction materials company Ability Building Colours Co has recently introduced a new and enhanced version of this popular performance increasing admixture.

Marketed under the banner Efflorein® Mark 2, the new multi-functional formula has achieved outstanding results in recent field and laboratory trials, according to the company, confirming that it can deliver a range of performance enhancing benefits to premixed concrete, mortar and grout mixes.

Efflorein® Mark 2 utilises the latest in construction materials technology to improve compressive strength, provide a positive waterproofing action, and increase the intensity and colour saturation of integrally coloured concrete mixes, while helping substantially to eliminate the problems associated with efflorescence (salt bloom) in premixed concrete.
