What LAMININ® Does

LAMININ® Paver Infusion Technology will dramatically add protection, life and lasting value to Hanover’s concrete paver product line. Hanover® Pavers are manufactured as a single homogenous mix with average compressive strengths exceeding ASTM C936. The high performance of LAMININ® Paver Infusion Technology will defend against natural elements such as:

  • Acid rain
  • Alkalis
  • Efflorescence
  • Ultraviolet light
  • Oil and food stains

Stain Resistance

LAMININ® Paver Infusion Technology provides a higher level of stain resistance. In independent lab tests, stains penetrated almost two times deeper on pavers without LAMININ®. Results are illustrated below. Hanover® Pavers with LAMININ® will resist stains, making paver installations remain clean and vibrant.

Efflorescence Resistance

Efflorescence has long been a common problem associated with concrete pavers. Hanover® Pavers were tested in accordance with procedures outlined in ASTM C67. Paver samples were placed in water for seven days and showed no signs of efflorescence. The results were astounding. Hanover’s LAMININ® Paver Infusion Technology substantially reduces efflorescence.

UV Resistance

Hanover® Prest® Brick produced with LAMININ® Paver Infusion Technology provide superior resistance to UV damage. Bricks were subjected to intense ultraviolet light for 2000 hours, the equivalent of 15-20 years. Hanover’s Prest® Brick with LAMININ® showed very little change, as illustrated on the chart below. Test Results have been generated from independent lab tests. See ASTM D 4587-05 for testing procedures.

Acid Resistance

Hanover’s LAMININ® Paver Infusion Technology defends against natural elements such as acid rain. The bricks shown were subjected to 2 ml of non-diluted muriatic acid for 2 minutes, the equivalent of 15-20 years of acid rain damage. Hanover’s Prest® Brick with LAMININ® showed little or no visible damage. Other manufacturers provide paver protection with a top surface filled with tiny stones simply to produce a smooth finish. This process does not defend against acid rain damage. As shown in the photo of the competitor’s brick with top treatment, considerable visible damage occurred during the acid test.
