Importance of Aggregates

As at least three quarters of concrete is occupied by aggregates it is of great importance.

1.Cheaper than cement.Hence it reduces the cost of concrete.

2.Increases the binding capacity of cement.Cement alone can not be strong.

3.The chemical and thermal properties of aggregates effect the properties of concrete.

4.Durability of concrete depends on the characteristics of concrete.
