IN GEOLOGY, STONE IS A NATURALLY OCCURRING SOLID AGGREGATE OF ONE OR MORE MINERALS.
Aggregates are also raw materials used in the manufacture of other vital construction products such as ready mixed concrete.
This aggregate base, comprising crushed rocks that are able to pass through a ¾ -inch rock screen, is best suited for general construction use such as pipe bedding and filter media. The rocks in the aggregate base can consist of limestone, granite, and gritstone.
Consisting of crushed rocks able to pass through a ⅜ rock screen, this aggregate base is suitable for the making of concrete due to its durability, grading, surface texture, and skid resistance. With these positive aspects, the coarse aggregate does much to influence the properties of the concrete it makes.
Crusher run, crushed rock and gravel dust carefully mixed and graded to create an excellent combination of interlocking and compacting abilities, is used best on driveways, fillers, and loose-fill roads due to its durability and ability to provide a firm base.
Made from sturdy rock, these 6’x9’ blocks are up to tasks that require strength and durability, such as building substances that require sturdiness and firm properties.
Quarry dust, a byproduct of quarry mining, are small particles of rock made by the breaking of larger ones. Due to its easy availability and unique structure which helps enhance the construction of concrete, quarry dust has become a popular choice among road and home builders.
