Type 1 is a blend of aggregates, both sand and gravel, between 0-40mm. We create our Type 1 on site using recycled aggregates by blending our wash plant products.
Where does our Type 1 come from?
Our Type 1 consists of a mix of all five of the recycled aggregates that come from our recycling wash plant. We create our recycled aggregates by putting construction, demolition and excavation waste through our state-of-the-art recycling wash plant, where the materials are screened, graded, washed and finally stockpiled into their relevant product types.
How do we separate and produce our Type 1?
- The aggregates we use to create our Type 1 are separated when they go through our state-of-the-art wash plant. The aggregates are then stockpiled in their relevant categories: 0-2mm soft and 0-4mm sharp sand, 4-10mm, 10-20mm and 20-40mm gravel. We can then blend together a mix of the different aggregates to create our Type 1.
Applications and uses
