Infrastructure & Aggregates

Friday, July 13, 2018

Did you know?

Aggregates make up nearly 95% of asphalt and up to 75% of concrete

Many people don’t realize the amount of aggregates required to make the roads we travel on daily. That’s why when it comes to rebuilding our infrastructure, it starts with quality materials. Limestone, sand, gravel and air-cooled blast furnace (ACBF) slag are all ingredients used in a variety of mix designs for both hot mix asphalt and ready-mix concrete. Therefore, it is imperative that quality INDOT state certified materials are used during this process. While aggregates are use in both asphalt and concrete pavement it’s also used in what you can’t see from the road’s surface, road base. The road base plays an important role in extending the life of newly paved roads. It provides a foundation for the surface pavement and must consist of high quality material built to withstand the heavy traffic and weather conditions of the Midwest. These materials aren’t just used in road construction, they are important components for a variety of development projects.

New malls, restaurants, and housing developments are just a few examples where aggregates are used to construct them. Back fill for sewers and drainage, erosion control for our beaches, and even water filtration systems. Aggregates are used are used in a variety of construction applications people often don’t realize.
