Aggregate commonly consists of sand, crushed stone, gravel (pebbles), and other coarse substances. This is generally useful for the purpose of mixing cement, lime, bitumen, gypsum to form concrete or mortar. It helps bring stability, volume, resistance to wear or erosion and is useful to make concrete slabs.
The raw material is essential for the construction of small houses, roads, skyscrapers, etc. Construction aggregates are the basic material for all construction work and help lay a strong foundation. There is a 'Green' alternative to construction aggregate known as Lightweight Expanded Clay Aggregate (LECA). It is extremely lightweight and used on its own or combined with concrete.
This article describes types of construction aggregates, benefits of using expanded clay aggregates and provides a brief introduction to LECA construction wall panel.
Construction aggregate is coarse to medium-grained particulate material that is useful for construction-work. It is often referred to as simply aggregate as well. This includes material like sand, gravel, crushed stone, etc. This material happens to be the most mined material in the world and is an important component of composite materials like concrete and asphalt concrete.
Expanded clay aggregate is a lightweight aggregate that is produced by heating clay to a high temperature of 1200 degrees in a rotary kiln. This releases gases which result in creating thousands of small bubbles to produce a honeycomb structure. This is very useful when producing lightweight concrete products and has several other applications as well.
