Application Areas of Sand and Gravel Aggregates

Concrete preparation

Road construction

Building construction

Infrastructure construction

Railway engineering

Water engineering

Landscaping

Environmental Projects

Decorative Use

Concrete laying

Concrete preparation

In concrete, sand and gravel aggregates occupy most of the volume and are used to provide strength and structural stability to the concrete. Both fine aggregates (e.g. sand) and coarse aggregates (e.g. gravel) are indispensable components in the production of concrete.

road construction

Road construction

Sand and gravel aggregates are used as paving materials in road construction, including the base and surface layers of roads. They are able to withstand heavy pressure and wear and tear from vehicle traffic.

building construction

Building construction

In construction, sand and gravel aggregates are used in the manufacture of building materials such as blocks, prefabricated elements, bricks, and as part of the foundation, walls and roof of a building.

Infrastructure construction

Infrastructure construction

Such as bridge construction and tunnel construction also require large quantities of sand and gravel aggregates as building materials.

Railway engineering

Railway engineering

Sand and gravel aggregates are often used for the bedding underneath railroad tracks, which helps to spread out the loads borne by the railroad tracks while providing stable support.

Water engineering

Water engineering

In the construction of dams, embankments, harbors and ports, sand and gravel aggregates are used as an important ingredient in concrete or for filling to increase the stability and durability of the structure.

Landscaping

Landscaping

Selected sand and gravel aggregates are widely used in outdoor landscaping, such as the decoration of sidewalks, courtyards, and flower beds, due to their natural color and texture.

Environmental Projects

Environmental Projects

Gravel aggregates are also used in certain environmental projects, such as as filtering materials in rainwater collection and filtration systems to help remove pollutants.

house

Decorative Use

Specific types of aggregates, such as colored gravel, can be used for indoor and outdoor decoration to provide a beautiful visual effect.

Raw materials for producing sand and gravel aggregates

granite

Granite

A high quality raw material for construction aggregates due to its high hardness and wear resistance.

limestone

Limestone

The material of choice in some regions for manufacturing cement and producing fine aggregates.

basalt

Basalt

With good abrasion and compression resistance, it is suitable for use as aggregate for pavement and construction.

cobblestone

River pebbles

After being processed in a crusher, they can be used as a high quality concrete aggregate.

shale

Shale

Certain types of shale can be used for specific types of construction projects after crushing and screening.

ore

Quartz sand

Moderately hard sandstone can be used as construction aggregate.
