Monier produce a range of coarse aggregates for concrete, asphalt, sealing and drainage purposes and sands for drainage and filter materials in road construction and under concrete slabs and pavers.
In concrete the aggregates and sands are an essential part of the mix, and the mechanical properties of the rock is produced to conform with relevant specifications.
Sands (fine aggregates) are a critical raw material used in the manufacture of readymix concrete and concrete products. Having a secure supply of suitable sand is critical for the manufacture of quality
concrete products. This is especially true for Port Moresby where naturally occurring sands of suitable quality for use in certified concrete products is relatively rare.
Monier has invested in and operates a state of the art sand processing plant that provides the functionality to wash and “size” the sand to meet design requirements. Naturally occurring deleterious materials are washed out while simultaneously screening to size the sand to remove any organics and coarse particles.
