FAQ about Aggregates

What are the different types of aggregates?

There are many different aggregate types, including: gravel, sand, concrete, stones, hardcore, shingle and more. Each of these can be classified in various ways according to shape, size, density and origin.

What are aggregates used for?

Aggregates are generally used for construction and landscaping projects. Their end-use depends on the grade, size and quality of the aggregate. Lower quality aggregates of various sizes are used for filling holes, while higher quality and finer grades of aggregates will be better used for sub-base construction for roads, paths and more. Aggregates are also commonly used for drainage construction, and they also form an integral part of any concrete mix.

Why are aggregates used in concrete?

Aggregates play a vital role in a concrete mix. The quantity and quality of the aggregates will determine the consistency, strength and workability of the mix. Aggregates make up 60%-80% of a typical concrete mix, so choosing the right aggregates for your project is a very important decision to make. To find out more, read a previous article about the role aggregates play in concrete.

How should aggregates be stored?

Aggregates should be stored safely in separate piles, with enough space cleared to make unloading aggregates and the surrounding construction work safe for all personnel. You can store aggregates in storage bins, on elevated pallets, or on the ground – but make sure you don’t cross contaminate stockpiles.
