Care and Maintenance of your Handcrafted Concrete Basin.

This is one of a kind, handcrafted and unique concrete design is made to last, and with a bit of care and love you will have this forever.

 Made from only the best products, this concrete has been sealed, waxed and tested before leaving our factory to ensure its excellent quality in your bathroom.

 Only a little common sense and care is needed in caring for your New Form Concreting concrete, these as follows:

• Remembering that our concrete is both water tolerant and stain resistant but not water and stain proof. Ensuring you wipe and clean as you use is essential to the ongoing care of your beautiful basin. Over time your basin will gain character, as it is a natural ageing product.
• Wipe as you go, using a soft damp cloth to wipe it down.
• If you encounter stubborn stains, use a mild non-abrasive cleaner.
 • Avoid exposure to products with high PH levels such as jiff and bleach, avoid exposure to paint strippers, nail polish remover and hair dye. Rinse immediately to neutralise the effect, and then follow usual cleaning procedure using a PH neutral cleaning agent.
• Avoid exposure to high impact, especially on the edges.

Stubborn Stains and Dried Spills:

• New Form Concreting high-end sealers provide great resistance to most common used items used in the bathroom, but please note: if left for an extended period, stains may occur, so ensure you wipe down as you go. A wet cloth is recommended for any stubborn stains. If needed use a non-acidic and non-abrasive cleaner and rinse well with water. Avoid forceful scrubbing as this may result in a loss of shine and remove the protective sealer.
• Do NOT leave your basin - toothpaste, mouthwash, hair dye, sunscreen, oil-based products or makeup.
• DO NOT fill your basins with boiling water and leave for extended periods of time. Your basin is designed for washing not soaking.
• Direct Sunlight: Our concrete basins are suitable product to be used outdoors, our concrete colours are all UV resistant, and the colour is throughout the entire concrete piece.
• Heat Resistance: Placing hot items such as a hair straightener directly onto your polished concrete basin is not recommended. Although it is heat resistant, excessive localised heat may result in damage to the concrete sealer or may lead to a thermal shock.
• Scratches, Cracks and Edge Chipping: Like all materials, over time the sealer on concrete basins may develop scratches and abrasive marks. To minimise this, follow the waxing procedure to ensure your basin looks beautiful.
• As with all basins, concrete is susceptible to chipping and cracking with improper use. Avoid impact on edges and the surface with hard objects. Areas around cutouts are weak points and can form small hairline cracks. The damage is aesthetic and not structural. If structural cracks occur, the product will be replaced. Please note, hairline cracks are not common but may occur. Please ensure you follow the installation process correctly.

Remember to wax your basin once a month to keep it looking beautiful!

  As a mild and gentle cleaner, we like to use a damp microfibre, combined with dishwashing liquid - 2 Tablespoons to a litre of water, this works as a great general cleaner!

Ongoing Maintenance:

Your beautiful basin comes already sealed and waxed. This waxing process should be don ever month to ensure the protection of the sealer and aid against any staining.

Installation Guide:

This is a one of a kind, hand crafted and unique concrete design that is made to last, and with a bit of care and love you will have this forever.

• We recommend the correct waste is purchased for your basin – Our recommendation is our ADP Universal 32-40mm pop up waste (comes in Matte Black, Matte White and Chrome), or any other waste that suits.
• Silicone where waste is in contact with the basin – top and bottom.
• Ensure no acetone is used on the basin, this may affect the sealer.
• Ensure home water temperature is not hotter than 70 degrees (any hotter and it will burn a child!)
• Ensure no water is trapped under the sink, a silicone bead around the perimeter of the base of the basin is required to ensure no water gets under the basin. If water does get trapped through poor installation water marks can appear.
• Ensure the waste is tightened – Hand tight only.
• Ensure the waste is siliconed in and all silicone is left to dry for at least 24 hours prior to use.
• Warm soapy water is the best way to clean your basin, no harsh abrasive material to be used nor cleaning products are used.
• Apply our Gillys wax which can be purchased direct from here - or head to Bunnings to find it.

Wall Hanging Basins:

Our basins do not come with a hole in the back for wall hanging, HOWEVER, L-brackets can be used to easily secure our basin to your wall. Simply head over to bunnings to find your compatible bracket (e.g. and recess into the wall and glue down – easy as! Your builder or plumber will have the know-how and tools to help your dream become a reality.
