S-Tech® Concrete Pavers

Technically Advanced Cast Stone Pavers

S-Tech® Concrete Concrete

There have been great technological enhancements in concrete over the past few decades. SmartStone has grown with these advancements and developed S-Tech® Concrete. This concrete is far superior in performance and durability when compared to Standard Concrete pavers. There is no other paver like it in the South African market.

High performance concrete is used to manufacture high performance pavers

SmartStone S-Tech® Concrete pavers are:

  • Stronger
  • More dense and less porous
  • More abrasive resistant
  • Virtually immune to efflorescence
  • Resistant to acid attack

Independent Laboratory Results

We sent several SmartStone Standard Concrete products and S-Tech® Concrete products to an Independent Laboratory, to test for strength; water absorption; and abrasive strength. We did this to evidently prove S-Tech® Concrete’s superiority to Standard Concrete.

S-Tech pavers are not merely manufactured with high performance concrete. We further import and supply a protector (SmartGuard), specially developed for S-Tech concrete. Applied after installation, it penetrates the concrete and prolongs the life of the treated products.

For more information on the use, advantages & characteristics, application procedure, and other information regarding SmartGuard, browse the SmartGuard Technical Data Sheet.

SmartGuard:

  • Repels water and other fluids that could damage the pavers
  • Protects the original colour
  • Protect against other common problems associated with concrete pavers

S-Tech® Concrete is currently available in Gauteng & KwaZulu-Natal.
