Aggregates are the most mined material in the world. We expertly mine high-quality aggregates that are used as base materials under foundations, roads, railroads and drainage. Aggregate products include bases, specialty sands, decorative/landscape, rip rap/gabion and drain rock. About 60 percent of our sales by volume include aggregates for asphalt concrete and Portland cement concrete.
We adhere to pavement specifications and also develop custom mix designs to meet client requests. Our products include hot, warm and cold mix asphalt as well as rubberized asphalt concrete. Surface durability, temperature, reflection, roadway noise and volume of traffic are all factors in selecting appropriate pavement mix design.
PPC promotes the use of reclaimed asphalt pavement (RAP) and warm-mix asphalt (WMA), two products that conserve raw materials and energy, cut emissions from operations and improve conditions for workers. Using RAP is usually more cost-efficient, and it’s often equal or greater in quality than traditional methods.
