Discover the various things that recycled and virgin aggregates can be used for within the construction industry.

Aggregates are a type of construction material that is widely used in a variety of applications. We are Pegasus is a highly reputed aggregate supplier in the UK, delivering recycled and virgin aggregates to customers across the West Midlands. Particularly popular in the construction industry, here are five common uses for aggregates.

Concrete

Aggregates are a key ingredient in concrete, which is the most widely used construction material in the world. Concrete is made by mixing cement, water, and aggregates to create a sturdy and durable material that is used in everything from bridges and buildings to roads and pavements.

If you are looking for ready-mix concrete, instruct our concrete suppliers to come out to you where we can mix and batch on site, leaving you with the perfect amount of material for the job. No more overspending or leaving yourself short, just choose our ready-mix concrete service for instantaneous, precise results.

Asphalt

Aggregates are also a crucial component of asphalt, which is used to pave roads, highways, and other surfaces. Asphalt is made by mixing together aggregate, bitumen, and other ingredients to create a durable and long-lasting paving material.  

Or aggregate suppliers can partner with road management businesses to ensure that roads are safe for vehicles to use. Effective road surfacing is down to the right product and skills, something that our asphalt suppliers can play their part in achieving.  

Road base

In addition to being used in asphalt and concrete, aggregates are also often used as a base layer for roads and other surfaces. The aggregate provides a stable and supportive foundation for the surface material, ensuring that it is durable and long-lasting.

Drainage

Aggregates are often used in drainage systems to help filter and direct water away from buildings and other structures. The aggregate provides a porous surface that allows water to pass through while also providing structural support. Reducing the chance of flooding, a well-functioning drainage system can be created from recycled and virgin aggregates.  

Landscaping

Aggregates are also commonly used in landscaping applications. They can be used as a decorative element, such as in rock gardens, or as a functional element, such as in pathways or driveways. Upgrade your home to feature a fantastic new driveway or other garden aspects with a delivery of aggregate. Whether you are tackling the home project on your own, or you are a professional landscaper looking for reliable aggregate suppliers, We Are Pegasus can help.
