Lightweight stone, sand, and block materials

We offer a variety of material commonly used in concrete and block plants. One of the most popular products is a special block mix that is comprised of the screened fines of manufactured aggregates. This process that this once shale material undergoes is impressive. By using this lightweight block material in your mix for the production of your products, you are increasing the strength while lowering the weight of the block. A lighter finished products means more blocks per pallet and cheaper shipping to anywhere, making your company more competitive. We also offer larger sizes like a 3/8” that works great in molds where stone or other items will be attached after. Using a larger size aggregate allows better results when it comes to mortar or glue products that will hold on the stone veneer that will be the face of the fireplace or other outdoor accessory.
