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.
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
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.
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.
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).
