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.
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.

Resiblock does not sell paving supplies, only its own range of paving sealers and ancillary products. We do not provide advice as to whether to buy Marshalls paving or Bradstone paving or any other brand; we advise you to research your options (start with a Google search on “block paving company” for example) and to talk with the respective paving supplier. Whichever paving type you choose, we can help you seal and protect your paving.
Resiblock products are designed to stabilise the jointing medium within small element flexibly laid paving preventing its erosion from both natural and manmade forces i.e. high velocity water flows, pressure washing, vacuum sweeping, vehicular and aircraft movement etc. The installation of Resiblock Products provide a maintenance free paver pavement.
No specialist labour is required, the application of Resiblock products are simplistic, generally the same would be undertaken by the paving contractors/sub contractors on site, Resiblock are more than happy to attend sites to assist a contractor with application where he has not installed our Products previously. Alternatively please refer to the database of commercial Resiblock contractors.
Please feel free to browse our Products and Free Quotes sections of this website; we would be pleased to provide a written quotation for supply of materials to your specific project. Selection of the correct Resiblock product is dependent upon 4 things:
- The paver type to be sealed
- The environment i.e. internal or external
- Whether the area is purely pedestrianised or subject to vehicular trafficking
- Any unusual characteristics i.e. flood defence scheme
We are confident that nobody can demonstrate the same degree of longevity as Resiblock, we have Case Studies where our products have been utilised over paver pavements and remain functional 10 years after application. Resiblock’s world or expertise and knowledge is generally recognised as the most definitive in its field and we would be happy to bring that expertise and knowledge to your project.
