November 2018 -  Focus on Sand & Gravel

Sand and gravel are two of the core materials used in the construction industry. These naturally occurring minerals are very versatile and are used in many ways, some of which are explored below.

Concrete
Both sand and gravel are heavily utilised in the construction of concrete. Ordinarily, gravel is mixed with asphalt to form a sturdy, waterproof road surface. During colder months, a combination of sand and gravel is used to improve traction

Roofing
Many people are surprised when they learn that sand and gravel are used within the roofing industry. Very often these two materials are used to make roof shingles. Sand and gravel can also be mixed together to form a roofing aggregate.
Landscaping
Sand and gravel are often used together to form an aggregate, especially for the use of private driveways and car parks. Another important use that they have is that of water filtration in newly developed plots and outdoor areas, particularly at the side of newly built roads.
Glass
Sand and gravel are also used for the construction of glass. Both foundry and abrasive sand are used in glass production. What makes sand such a special material for making glass is the quartz content (or the silica).

If you are currently carrying out construction work on your property, or garden, and need waste removed or large amounts of gravel or sand moved on site, then please do get in touch with MR Services (Essex) Ltd today..
