Aggregate Testing

Within the construction industry, this is an essential material and is usually a variety of natural sand and gravel or crushed rock and even man made materials. 

Used regularly as an element of concrete and similar substances such as capping and subbase and also for more specific uses including filter media or track ballast.

Because aggregate can be created from such varied sources and can be used in so many different ways, testing is absolutely necessary and an important part of your project.
