Aggregates are stone, natural materials which are the first natural material used and continue to be used in construction. They come either from rock extraction or from natural deposits in riverbeds. They are washed and sieved in suitable sieves to produce the desired granulometric gradients.
Aggregates are one of the main components of mortars, as their creation requires cement, aggregates (mortar = cement + aggregates) and water. Important factors for the selection of the aggregate are its purity, its granulometric gradation as well as its color which plays a decisive role in the final shade of the mortar. The aggregates chosen to create the mortars are either limestone or silicate.
For the creation of mortars, it is very important to observe the correct ratio of aggregate to cement as well as the granulometric gradient of the aggregate depending on the application for which the mortar is designed. Particular attention must be paid to the observance of the aggregate grain size curve so that the mortar does not fail.
It is worth mentioning that in order to achieve the correct composition of the mortars, the aggregates must be free of foreign bodies, have a defined granulometric gradation and have been used in the right proportion.
Aggregates are also an excellent, natural and simple solution for exterior architectural decorative uses, for the creation of archeological routes and for entries in archaeological sites.
