Aggregates

CEMEX provides a wide range of aggregates from decorative to high-PSV aggregates to limestone, rock armour and sand and gravel. Throughout our UK-wide aggregates network, we plan carefully to ensure a balance between the need for raw materials and protecting the environment, involving local communities in land restoration opportunities and maximising the use of recycled materials


Our extensive national aggregates network of quarries, plants, depots and wharves combines the widest possible product range with excellent availability. We also have a marine division, CEMEX Marine, which operates a fleet of dredgers supplying sand and gravel to the construction industry and beach replenishment projects.

An indispensable ingredient

Aggregates are an indispensable ingredient in ready-mix concrete, asphalt, and mortar. Accounting for approximately 60% to 75% of ready-mix concrete’s volume, aggregates strongly influence concrete’s freshly mixed and hardened properties.

Aggregates not only increase concrete’s strength, but also can make the mix more compact, enabling applications such as weatherproofing and heat retention.

They can further contribute to concrete’s aesthetic qualities. For example, sand gives surface treatments their brightness.

A variety of applications

Our customers use our aggregates for a wide array of applications:

  • As a key component in the construction and maintenance of highways, walkways, parking lots, airport runways, and railways
  • For drainage, water filtration, purification, and erosion control
  • As fill material
  • For sand traps on golf courses, beaches, playing field surfaces, horse racing tracks, and related applications
  • To build bridges, homes, and schools

Aggregates are obtained from natural sand or sand-and-gravel pits, hard-rock quarries, dredging submerged deposits, or mining underground sediments.
