ef•flo•res•cence (ef-luh-res-uhns) n. 1. Chemistry. a) an efflorescing b) the resulting powder or crust.
While efflorescence can be readily cleaned off the surfaces, it can never be completely eliminated – and will continue to re-occur.
NeaCera® Terra-cotta panels are produced using very finely milled and ground clay, which is pressure extruded and fired at 2200o F. The engobe applied to the panels prior to firing fuses into the surface of the NeaCera® Terra-cotta panels. The combination of the production process and application of the engobe makes NeaCera® an impervious cladding material. As a result, no efflorescence will occur on a NeaCera® Terra-cotta cladding installation.
