Two years in the making Monsta-SLAB® is a proprietary engineered mix design developed by the world class engineering team at CANZAC that significantly reduces concrete deterioration and in doing so addresses a long-standing problem in the concrete industry.

Canzac Ltd Founder, Lance Canute, says with CANZAC's reputation for developing the most innovative products in the concrete industry the engineering team turned their focus to tackling one of the industries biggest problems head-on.

“New Zealand’s extreme weather conditions, harsh marine and heavy industry environments, high vehicle movements in logistic warehouses and distribution centres and heavy equipment in factories and waste management facilities all have a significant impact on concrete durability.  Heavy equipment wheels abrade the concrete surface, while deflection and impact from rolling loads can cause cracking and spalling.  We’re pretty excited to announce Monsta-SLAB®, this latest innovative solution is a game changer for the industry.”

Traditionally many in the industry have tried to fight abrasion by simply adding more cement to the mix design, but just adding more cement to concrete reduces its elasticity and workability, meaning it will be harder to place the concrete resulting in increased labour costs.

Lance says the new Monsta-SLAB® technology solves the problem of concrete deterioration and is a breakthrough for the industry.

“Monsta-SLAB® kicks ordinary concrete to the curb. It performs better, reduces carbon emissions and delivers improved impact and abrasion resistance. In a nutshell you get unrivalled durability, greater flexural and tensile strength, reduced permeability and enhanced abrasion and impact resistance.  It’s pretty impressive stuff!”

Monsta-SLAB® is designed and developed to produce better outcomes on a huge range of engineering projects including warehouses & distribution centres, heavy equipment facilities, manufacturing, refuse transfer stations, cold storage, Food & beverage processing facilities and road ways.
