Construction aggregates are something we use and interact with each and every day. Our cities, towns, and transportation networks all depend on aggregate material. In fact, beginning thousands of years ago, civilizations built entire cities with stone, sand, and gravel. Many of these ancient structures still stand today.
Aggregate is a granular material utilized in modern construction. The most common natural aggregates include sand, gravel, and crushed rock.
We can use aggregate in a wide variety of applications like concrete and asphalt production, as well as sub-base, capping & drainage systems, in addition to decorative purposes. You can find aggregate as a base material present underneath highways, walkways, airport runways, parking lots, and railroads. It also aids in water filtration, purification and erosion control.
In its raw form, aggregate is used in combination with other resources in constructing numerous items that we rely on to secure and maintain our quality of life like houses, roads, bridges, schools, hospitals, etc.
