Efflorescence can be controlled with Ability products

At Ability we understand that the foundation of any great project needs to be 100 percent from the start.

Efflorescence has been a common problem that can be controlled by a unique product developed by Ability called Efflorein® Mark 2 which is a multi purpose, performance enhancing concrete admixture.

Efflorein® Mark 2 has been specifically developed to control the occurrence of efflorescence and the problems associated with salt bloom in Portland cement concrete, mortar and grout products, while also helping to improve a range of other concrete performance characteristics in both the plastic and hardened states.

Another important aspect of the final success of a project is accurate colour correctness in the detailing. Ability has excellent news in this department!

We offer some of the most innovative and reliable colouring products for cement and for colour matching cement coatings.

Many Australian professionals are very familiar with our extensive range of abilox® fine, UV resistant, inorganic mineral oxide colouring pigments and with Ability’s eco-friendly duro paint™ our long lasting, all weather resistant, guaranteed for 20 years (conditions apply) colour coating range.

These products powerfully enhance all urban project work - resulting in outstanding durable colour matching within the cement itself as well as for surrounding cement areas that need durable coloured coatings to match.
