#57 (3/4 inch) Clean Crushed Stone – This product is used in many applications – in ready mixed concrete; in Bituminous concrete (black top); as a leveling and bedding material under concrete slabs; in filter beds of septic systems; in foundations drains, French drains; combination drains; and driveways.
We most often recommend this product for use as an aggregate base course for driveways, parking areas, roads and streets. Pipe line contractors request this material when repairing streets. It replaces the material they take out of the ditch and insures good compaction without settlement and can also be applied as a compacted layer under the pipe for bedding.
¼ inch “grits” – This widely used as an anti skid abrasive material during the winter months by many townships and municipalities. Generally, it is blended with rock salt for that purpose, by the various purchasers to their own specifications.
Concrete block manufactures use these Grits to make a stronger block and reduce cement content. It is used to manufacture concrete pavers; concrete burial vaults; and lawn ornaments. French drains are another application as well as being used in bituminous concrete for tennis court mixes.
The product also is in great demand by golf courses for use as a drainage media under their golf greens
