When it comes to concrete, Aggregates, course and fine, are two of the main components in a quality product. Without sand and gravel/stone, the cement paste would have nothing around which to bind. More simply put, sand and gravel/stone provide the volume to concrete.
In mixes for such applications as footing, slabs, and driveways, a size 67stone is primarily used. But don’t rule out other possibilities. Exposed aggregate driveways, elevated slabs with lightweight stone, 2inch line mix, and flowable fill are just a few variations of mixes using different aggregates.
Prior to batching the load, all materials undergo thorough testing to meet company and industry standards. Please contact the Capital Concrete Technical Services Department to discuss your project’s needs.
