AGGREGATES IN SPECIAL APPLICATIONS
Special aggregates: CCB has a range of some 50 different calibers.
The flexibility of the production tool enables new products to be developed for specific applications such as, for example, draining materials, 20/32 type III ballast, 0/20 for sports fields, etc.
Treated blends: A facility with a 500 ton per hour capacity enables precise mixes of up to 4 aggregate sizes and 3 types of additives to be performed. Treated blends comply with specifications and are regularly monitored by the laboratory.
Added filler: CCB also sells filler for concrete. This graded complement is used to:
- Obtain a fatter concrete by associating it with an added plasticiser;
- Obtain greater resistance during demoulding of “wetland” consistency concretes;
- Improve short and long term resistance;
- Obtain a better facing.
Finally, it is the ideal and almost indispensable complement in self-levelling concrete formulations.
Fillers for agricultural amendments: Through its composition (mainly its carbonate content), CCB’s filler is also suitable as an amendment for agricultural land since it neutralises acidic soils.
