20MM CRUSHED STONE CHIPS

Crushed stone or angular rock is a form of construction aggregate, typically produced by mining a suitable rock deposit and breaking the removed rock down to the desired size using crushers. It is distinct from gravel which is produced by natural processes of weathering and erosion, and typically has a more rounded shape.

20MM CRUSHED STONE CHIPS

PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Crushed stone or angular rock is a form of construction aggregate, typically produced by mining a suitable rock deposit and breaking the removed rock down to the desired size using crushers. It is distinct from gravel which is produced by natural processes of weathering and erosion, and typically has a more rounded shape.  Aggregate is the component of a composite material that resists compressive stress and provides bulk to the composite material. For efficient filling, aggregate should be much smaller than the finished item, but have a wide variety of sizes. For example, the particles of stone used to make concrete typically include both sand and gravel.

These chips are manufactured using high quality stone by our dexterous professionals with the aid of sophisticated methods. The offered chips are widely used in road and pathways and constructions in various places. In addition to this, the provided Stone Chips can be purchased from us in bulk at market leading prices.

USES

  • Crushed stone is used mostly as aggregate for road construction and maintenance. It is also used for making cement and lime and other chemical applications, and in agriculture.
  • They are added to concrete mixes to keep cement costs down and to reduce the shrinkage and cracking that is often found in concrete structures.
  • They are used to line railroad tracks, helping carry the load of trains and providing better drainage of water away from the rails.
  • They fill in voids around the foundations of homes and to protect underground pipes that are located beneath homes and other structures.
  • They are used in the manufacture of some brands of cat litter.
  • They are included in roofing shingles to make them durable enough to stand up to the weather.
  • They are used to build roads, with about 30,000 tons of aggregates needed to build one mile of a four-lane highway.
  • Crushed limestone is used at power plants to reduce the high levels of sulfur dioxide emissions.
  • They are used to provide the minerals for creating cosmetics etc.
