TOPCRETE Paint Quality

Dense Concrete paint Quality Block

Overview

Topcrete blocks are manufactured with dense aggregate, so they are more robust and durable in building applications where strength is required. 

Topcrete Paint Quality blocks are manufactured using finer dense aggregate materials providing an even surface for paint finishes or any other direct decoration. Topcrete Paint Quality blocks are robust, and durable being manufactured in a range of formats and strengths, suited to a number of applications.

Where can TOPCRETE Paint Quality be used?

Cavity Walls

Topcrete Paint Quality is suitable for use in the inner leaf of cavity walls. Topcrete Paint Quality blocks are suitable for direct decoration, such as paint finish.

Commercial and leisure buildings

Topcrete Paint Quality blocks offer an even textured finish for direct decoration. Ideal for commercial and leisure buildings.

loadbearing walls

Topcrete Paint Quality blocks come in a variety range of strengths to meet your construction needs.

separating walls

Topcrete Paint Quality blocks may can be used in sound separating walls subject to design specification.

Why use TOPCRETE Paint Quality?

Sizes and weights

Topcrete Paint Quality blocks are available in solid, hollow, midi and multicore formats, providing a greater range of blocks to suit your building needs. Each of these block variations are available in a range of strengths to meet different structural applications for walls both above and below ground walls as well as beam and block floors.

When estimating Midi Blocks the following number of blocks are required per m<sup>2</sup> of laid wall, based on using 10mm mortar joints

  • 140mm width = 15 blocks
