Aggregates are classified by particle size and consistency. They can be subdivided into the categories: natural stone aggregates (sand and gravel) and crushed aggregates (stone chippings and crushed stones). Aggregates are generally available in the form of a homogeneous bulk product. The product characteristics are standardised, in order to ensure the necessary levels of reliability and processability.
Aggregates are used in a variety of industries for a range of purposes. They are a primary component in the production of concrete and asphalt, but also serve as a filter and fill material or as a basic material for road building and railway construction. Our product portfolio varies from country to country.
