If your chosen Resiblock Product is a pre-polymer urethane simply allow the area to dry then abrade the area, following abrasion the area should then be pressure washed, allowed to dry thoroughly again and you can then proceed with the second coat.

Where hands have come into contact with a Resiblock pre-polymer urethane do not use RESIBLOCK Resiclean as this will de-fat/damage your skin. Allow the RESIBLOCK product to dry and wash your hands with soap and water over a number of days to remove the pre-polymer urethane.

A. Take your square feet measurement and multiply by 0.0929 i.e. 100 square feet x 0.0929 = 9.29 sq metres

Q. I don’t know how many square metres I have and note that your product must be installed per square metre, I know how many *square yards I have, how do I convert this?*

A. Take your square yards measurement and multiply by 0.836 i.e. 10 sq yards x 0.836 = 8.36 sq metres

Q. I have white marks appearing on my concrete block paving. What is it and how do I stop it happening?

A. Due to the process of manufacture of concrete blocks, calcium hydroxide will often be transported via capillary action to the surface of the paving (called “blooming”) where it will react with CO2 in the air to form Calcium Carbonate i.e. a white chalky deposit. Simply remove these deposits with RESIBLOCK ER (Efflorescence Remover). To prevent further occurrence seal with RESIBLOCK Superior or RESIBLOCK Superior Natural Matt. For further information on efflorescence please refer to our technical library.

Q. How do I remove tyre marks from the concrete blocks on my driveway and prevent its reoccurrence?

A. The tyre marking is caused by tiny particles of vulcanised rubber becoming entrapped within the surface of the concrete block these should be removed with a mild detergent and pressure washing. Thereafter, seal the area with RESIBLOCK Superior / RESIBLOCK Superior Natural Matt to mask the reminder of any staining and providing excellent resistance to the reoccurrence of tyre marking.
