Aggregates are a combination of several separate elements that form a whole. They are typically made of sand, stone, gravel, recycled concrete and crushed rock, and are used to give bulk and strength to composite materials. This makes them highly resistant to erosion and wear, making them an ideal choice for construction projects. CEMEX offers a wide range of aggregate materials for concrete.
These granular materials are used with a cementing medium to form concrete or hydraulic mortar. They are essential ingredients in the manufacture of concrete, mortar and other construction materials, and are used in the construction and maintenance of structures such as roads, walkways, parking lots, airport runways and railroads. Aggregates can be used in a variety of ways to improve the strength and durability of your construction projects. For example, they can be used to create a strong foundation for buildings or roads, or to provide a protective layer against erosion.
They can also be used to create a smooth surface for driveways or walkways. When selecting aggregates for your project, it is important to consider the type of material you need. Different types of aggregates have different properties that make them suitable for different applications. For example, some aggregates are better suited for use in concrete than others.
It is also important to consider the size of the aggregate you need for your project. When using aggregates in your construction projects, it is important to ensure that they are properly installed and maintained. This will help ensure that your project is completed safely and efficiently. Proper installation and maintenance will also help ensure that your project lasts for many years to come.
