When are aggregates useful?
Aggregates are quite diverse and you can often find a use for them on any building site. Aggregates are quite often mixed with concrete mixes. This keeps cement costs down and also helps prevent cracking which is often seen in concrete. Aggregates are also used to line railroads. Aggregates help carry the load of the train and also prove useful for water drainage. They are also useful when improving your home. Aggregate can fill in voids around the foundation of homes and protect underground pipes that are located under the household. One of the most popular uses for Aggregates is roadwork. You can use Aggregates to repair/fill in potholes. Around 30,000 tons of aggregate would be needed to build one mile of a four-lane highway. Aggregate can be incorporated into garden projects to create drainage. This can improve plant life and also make your garden aesthetically pleasing. Aggregates can also be used when crafting bricks for construction. The aggregate makes the bricks stronger, which helps the project has a longer life.
