What are aggregates?
Aggregates are a material that is commonly used in construction and ranges in size from tiny particles to stones. They are typically naturally made or manufactured from recycled products and are used as part of a larger “mixture” such as concrete or cement to add strength by filling in any gaps that would weaken it. Aggregates are also often used as the base for roads and driveways.
