Granular

Granular materials consist of a combination of coarse and fine aggregate to create a product capable of packing well. Applications include road bases and surfacing materials.

 

Clear

Clear products are made by taking the coarse material that comes off the crusher or scalping screen, and removing the fines. Sometimes clear products are also washed before being sold to the customer. Applications include use in concrete & asphalt manufacturing, and as a backfill and drainage.

 

Sand

Sand products are made by separating the fine material from the coarse material. Natural sands are produced from sand and gravel pits, while manufactured sands are produced from quarries. Applications include use in concrete & asphalt manufacturing, bedding for pipes, in beach and golf course construction, and to provide safety on icy roads.

 

Oversize

Oversized round stone is scalped out of the bank in sand & gravel pits, or blasted at quarries. Applications include landscaping & decorative applications, retaining walls and erosion control.

 

Recycled

Recycled aggregates are produced by crushing & screening recycled construction materials such as concrete & asphalt. Applications include road bases, and use in concrete & asphalt manufacturing.
