granite to be used as construction aggregates

Uses for Construction Aggregates

Jan 07, 2019 Granite aggregates are formed when the magma below the Earth’s Surface crystalizes. Many construction sites use granite aggregate. The granite aggregates are found in various sizes that are 20-40mm, 10-20mm, 5-20mm, 5-10mm, 3-5 mm, 2-5mm, 0-2mm as well as 0-5 granite sand.

Materials Granite Construction

Granite promotes the use of reclaimed asphalt pavement (RAP) and warm-mix asphalt (WMA), two products that conserve raw materials and energy, cut emissions from operations and improve conditions for workers. Using RAP is usually more cost-efficient, and it’s often equal or greater in quality than traditional methods.

Durability of concrete made with granite and marble as

Nov 21, 2008 Marble and granite aggregates, which are called as by-products, come from the marble and granite stone industries (Binici et al., 2007). The civil engineering construction industry is believed to be one of the most potential consumers of mineral resources, thus generating a great amount of solid waste as a by-product ( Saboya et al., 2007 ).

Durability of concrete made with granite and marble as

Durability of concrete made with granite and marble as coarse aggregates was studied. River sand and ground blast furnace slag (GBFS) were used as fine aggregates. The results were compared with those of conventional concretes. Slump, air content, slump loss and setting time of the fresh concrete were determined.

Pros & Cons of Granite as Building Material

Highly polished (glossy) granite tiles can be slippery when wet and dangerous for children as well as an elder. Repair of badly scratched granite may turn out to be an expensive, with a possibility of alteration in the granite colour as well. Also, cracked or broken granite requires a skilled worker to repair it.
