Aggregate are a group of materials used for mixing with cement or any other kind of adhesive material to produce a mixture called concrete or mortar. The role of an aggregate is to give volume, stability, resistance to erosion and desirable finish. Aggregates also include soil, mulch, compost and manure for horticulture and garden use. Aggregates commonly used in building are sand, stone, gravel, broken blast-furnace slag, boiler ashes, burned shale, and burned clay.
Aggregates can be coarse or fine and having various shapes, depending on their applications. Gravels from river beds are the best coarse aggregates used for making Concrete. When gravel is not available, then suitable rock types are crushed to the desired size for making coarse aggregates. Fine aggregate is used for making thin concrete slabs or for achieving a smoother finish.
