4 Top Types and Application of Crushed Stone

Updated:2013-02-01 11:21:46
Since crushed stone is produced rather than formed naturally, it can be made in different sizes, anything from a fraction of an inch to numerous inches in size. Billions of metric tons of crushed stone are used yearly and uses are various. Nine of the main uses are listed below.

1.    Used in paving blocks and concrete for sidewalks, driveways, patios, homes, office buildings and paved roads as a base or sub-base material or in the process of cement manufacture.

2.    Mixed with a binder to make asphalt and tarmac, used for things such as driveway fillers and extenders. In the technique for road construction called Macadam, the strength of the road depends upon the interlocking of the stones due to their angular shapes.


3.    Used as a flux in blast furnaces to create liquid slag which, when cooled, becomes a stone material that is crushed and used as a construction aggregate.

4.    Sometimes used with a binding material in walls for shorelines and railroad construction. In shoreline protection, the crushed stone is called rip rap or shot rock and is used in all manner of shoreline structures to protect against erosion from water or ice, which is called scour. It is also used in other erosion control efforts.
