Primary aggregate can be defined as fine, granular or lump stone produced from crushed rock. It may be classified according to itís geology and source, for example limestone or granite and particle size. Physical properties such as hardness and size classification, and sometimes chemical properties determine suitability for end use. It may be incorporated in the construction of buildings, civil engineering projects and production of concrete or simply laid as decorative product.
Agricultural hydrate is a relatively coarse, unrefined form of hydrated lime, used mainly for adjusting the acidity of soils.
Agricultural lime is a term used for limestone, dolomitic limestone, quicklime or hydrated lime products that are applied to soil in order to neutralise soil acidity and increase yield. In addition, the essential mineral for plant growth calcium and in the case of dolomite, calcium and magnesium, are released into the soil structure.
Aluminous cement consists predominantly of calcium aluminate.
Asphalt is a mixture of bitumen and mineral matter, which may be natural or manufactured.
