As with any concrete products that use Portland cements there is a chance of efflorescence. At Proslate and Cast Products we aim to reduce this problem with the use of concrete additives.
The colours of the slates and products on this leaflet are limited to the photographic process and are guidance only. During the period the slates are fixed the colour may change, this is due to weather conditions.
Any deterioration in this respect does not affect the mechanical and physical properties of their durability. This guarantee does not cover exceptional ageing of the colour due to exposure to an abnormally aggressive atmosphere.
