A brochure on its aggregates portfoliohas been published by Welsh Slate.

 

A guide to thematerial’s use as an aggregate has been launched by Welsh Slate, the UK’sleading supplier of natural slate for a peerless range of exterior and interiordesign applications.

 

 

The guide gives a snapshot of Welshslate’s features and benefits as an aggregate, specifically for civilengineering, house building, the water industry, and precast and ready-mixedconcrete.

 

As aconstruction aggregate, Welsh slate can be used as a granular sub-base for roadbuilding, car parks, footpaths and driveways due to its excellent load bearingqualities. It can also be used as pipe bedding, washed sand for use in precastand ready-mixed concrete, slate sand (as a base for laying block paving),capping layers or crusher runs in road building, and as dug/fill, for fillinglarge voids.

 

Welsh slate isalso ideal as decorative chippings as it does not oxidise and keeps its naturalcolour indefinitely. Its natural flat shape also provides better coverage pertonne, and therefore better value for money, when compared to other aggregates.

 

An attractivepractical mulch for gardeners and landscapers, it is suitable for domestic andcommercial applications including garden footpaths, flower/shrub beds, weedsuppression, pond lining, municipal car parks and footpaths, caravan parks,golf courses, and cycle and forest tracks.

 

And when blendedwith sterilised PAS100 compost Welsh slate aggregate makes a high-qualitytopsoil suitable for all landscaping requirements including grass sowing,trees, shrubs, turfing, herbaceous borders and other plantings. It can be usedon brownfield land to help improve previously contaminated sites.
