Coarse Aggregate is normally greater than 5mm. Fine Aggregate is aggregate less than 5mm. Can be a single sized material typically 20mm, 14mm, 10mm,or 7mm or a graded aggregate consisting of a blend of single sized aggregate. Concrete Aggregates are produced to Australian Standards (AS 2758) or to more specific customer requirements.


Important Aggregate Dos and Don'ts. DO use aggregate that's in compliance with ASTM C 33, "Standard Specifications for Concrete Aggregates." Aggregates must be sound, clean, hard, durable, and free of excessive fines or contaminates that can affect cement hydration or disrupt the paste-aggregate bond.
