Our products at a glance:

It's a long way from raw materials through the mixture to the finished stone. Many plant components are involved in this process. Only if the system components are matched, can one be assured of a smooth process and economical operation of the block making plant. Learn about our Concrete block production plants.

It's a long way from raw materials over mixture to the finished (Curb)stone. Masa Curbstone presses were developed to fulfill among other criteria, the special requirements of the "British Standard" curbstones. This "British Standard" is still a condition in countries of the Middle East and the UK. Learn about our Curbstone production plants.

The manufacturing of autoclaved aerated concrete products demands high standards for mixing and dosing of the aggregates, the control of the fermentation process and the control of each production step. Masa's aerated concrete installations are proven advanced technology processes, designed according to customers specific requirements. This approach allows complete solutions to ensure highly efficient, optimised processes resulting in consistent final product quality. Learn about our AAC production plants.

It's a long way from raw materials through the mixture to the finished sand lime bricks. Many plant components are involved in this process. Only if the system components are matched, can one be assured of a smooth process and economical operation of the sand lime brick production plant. Learn about our Sand lime brick production plants.

The slab press UNI 2000 is the heart of any plant for the manufacture of concrete slabs. In addition, dosing and mixing plants, take-off devices with direct washing units and storage systems as well as machines and equipment for slab refinement and packaging are required. Masa can offer the complete know-how for the production of concrete slabs. This is the decisive advantage for our customers: Planning, design, manufacture, assembly, commissioning, training, maintenance and continuous support during production – all from one supplier.

Modern Slab Design:
Wide variety for increased sales.

Slabs in vogue: Diversity promotes sales figures

The sophisticated technology of concrete slab making with Masa plants and refinement components enables our customers to try out new combinations of raw materials as well as colours and structures over and over again. They can "play" with various surface structures and refinement procedures. Thus, the number of variations is nearly unlimited.

Depending on the market requirements, it is possible to offer a great variety of products that give the manufacturer resp. the building materials suppliers the possibility to increase their market shares with unique products.

Beside the profitability of the production, the variable appearances of the finished products are another decisive aspect in favour of Masa plants and equipment for the manufacture of concrete slabs.

Every slab a quality item:

Masa can supply secondary processing equipment to provide a wide range of different paving slab textures and finishes.

  • Washing

    The Masa direct washing plant is a perfect solution to refine the surface of the fresh products. Directly after the slab has been taken from the press, the surface can be washed with a washing device integrated into the slab take-off carrier.

    Fine particles of the aggregates and cement residues are removed in a combined spraying and splashing process. This brings out the first-class visual characteristics of the face mix materials. The product receives its distinctive appearance thus.

    The Masa direct washing plant is equipped with:

    • Individually adjustable nozzles
    • Adjustment possibilities for pressure and travelling speed
    • Two high-pressure spraying nozzle strips (with oscillating movement of the nozzles)
    • Splash water strip to wash away the cement remains (rinsing function)
    • Compressed air nozzle strip to blow off the remaining water
    • Quick change device for individual spraying nozzles or the nozzle strip

  • Calibrating

    In the calibrating station, deviations in the product height occurred during production can be levelled. After this process, the slab surfaces are absolutely plane-parallel. This is important for an attractive visual appearance of the finished product.

  • Grinding

    Masa grinding lines are designed to grind various raw materials (hard rock, soft rock) with different grain sizes. It is particularly important for us to minimize the tool and energy costs of the plant. Depending on the required grinding degree, the number of working stations is varied.

  • Chamfering

    In this step, all four upper edges of the slab are slightly chamfered to avoid possible later flaking-off at the edges.

  • Shot-blasting

    The shot-blasting procedure produces different high-grade surface structures. Special coloured face mix materials can be exposed thus. The process generates a slightly rough surface that is highly skid-proof.

  • Curling

    In the curling process, the preprocessed or unprocessed concrete surface is smoothed with plastic brushes. This generates a silky (shiny) appearance.

  • Impregnating

    Today, extremely high demands are made on the quality of concrete products. The end customer requests a consistently high-class appearance and wants an easy to clean surface at the same time. To fulfill these requirements, it is necessary to protect the concrete surfaces. There are various possibilities to achieve this.

    In this context, impregnating ranks first. The impregnation can either be carried out in the mixing process (face mix concrete) or before the finished concrete products are packaged. In the latter case, the impregnating agent is applied by means of rollers or sprayed onto the surface. Then the slabs have to be dried, there are various possibilities for this.

    As there is a great number of impregnating agents available, it is necessary to discuss and coordinate this with the chosen supplier.

  • Coating

    Today, extremely high demands are made on the quality of concrete products. The end customer requests a consistently high-class appearance and wants an easy to clean surface at the same time. To fulfill these requirements, it is necessary to protect the concrete surfaces. There are various possibilities to achieve this.

    Correct and lasting coating of concrete products requires much more expertise and effort than impregnating, as the concrete surfaces are sealed permanently. A lasting high-quality coating requires a very small residual moisture content before the coating process can start. Before the slabs are coated, they have to be warmed up. Depending on the type of coating, the slabs are then hardened by means of radiant heat or ultraviolet light.

    This process can be carried out twice, if required.

    As there is a great number of coating agents available, it is necessary to discuss and coordinate this with the chosen supplier.
