About Us

The management of P. O’Brien & Associates have over 40 years of experience in the development and manufacture of technically superior products for the construction and mining industries. Involved with the construction or refurbishment of such key projects as:

Established as the export division of P. O’Brien and Associates in 1993, initially  as a construction consultancy and niche toll manufacturing entity, Adjuvate Australia is well placed to service the global concrete, adhesive, sealant, coating and waterproofing markets. We have built strong relationships with clients throughout Australia, New Zealand, Fiji, Vanuatu, Papua New Guinea, Malaysia, Singapore, Italy, the United Kingdom, Mexico, Canada and the United States.

Our manufacturing and research facilities were established just south of Sydney in the Southern Highlands of New South Wales. With significant ongoing investment we have created a base for the cost effective development, manufacture and testing of a range of building, construction, mining and refractory products under “brand label” for our diverse group of clients.

Our, for export only, range of Adjuvate Building Products was developed over time to make best use of the opportunities afforded us by our many contacts throughout the world.

Producing a range targeted solely at export markets allows us to avoid any competition conflicts arising from the parent company’s toll manufacturing focus within Australia.

All products, whether marketed under the Adjuvate brand or produced for clients under brand label, are manufactured under strict quality procedures and tested to conform to relevant Australian Building Standards where applicable.

Our experienced team currently consult, develop and manufacture ranges of:

  • Ceramic Tile Adhesives, Grouts and Underlays
  • Building Adhesives: Vinyl, carpet, contact and wood working etc.
  • Waterproofing: Membranes, repellents, coatings, mastics and dampcourse
  • Concrete Polymers: Pva, acrylic, epoxy, modifiers, primers, superplasticisers and retarders etc.
