Aggregates

 

General Aggregates

Our aggregate plants produce the highest quality of aggregates for a diverse range of projects ranging from major national infrastructural highway project construction to small one- off deliveries for individual homeowners. Aztikintiyol provides a wide variety of rock types and sizes that we can guarantee will meet the requirements of any potential customer.

Aztikintiyol has Quarrying and Sand operations situated throughout the country producing high quality building products including River Bed Material, Lake Dredged Sand and Quarried Granite (Hard Rock).  With a production capability in excess of 5 million tonnes of Aggregate per annum, Aztikintiyol aim to satisfy all your project requirements.

We offer the following products to our customers:

  • Single Sized & All-in  Aggregates
  • Crushed graded Road-base material
  • Sands . Natural and crushed
  • Armour Rock
  • Gabions
  • Rail Ballast
  • General fill materials including natural gravel.
  • Granite single Sized & Granite All-in Aggregates

 

Granite Hard Rock Material.

 

The high quality material obtained from Shamkir is an intrusive igneous rock (granite) which is a more durable, tougher and less resistant to abrasion than many other rock sources.   This in turn provides improved performance when used in Asphalt and Concrete, due to it having high fractured faces, low flakiness index as well as being frost resistant.  Granite aggregates are also ideal for use in high- strength concrete, helping to achieve long term strengths whilst at the same time minimizing the required cement content.

 

The virgin material is carefully drilled and then blasted from the mountain, transported to the processing plant by dump truck and then crushed and screened to give the individual size fractions. A combination of Jaw, Cone and Impact crushing in line with carefully selected screening media ensure that Aztikintiyol provide an accurately sized and suitably shaped aggregate for use in a wide range of projects. 

 

 

Gravel

Aztikintiyol can provide 2 different types of gravel:

  • River gravel

This type of gravel is composed of unconsolidated rock fragments that have a general particle size ranging from granule to boulder size. The sizes are dependent on current customer specifications and changeable to suit the job it is needed for.  Gravel is crushed and screened to meet the required sizes and specifications. 

  • Granite blasted gravel

This material obtained from Shamkir, is a granite rock which is a more durable, tougher and less resistant to abrasion than river aggregate.  This in turn provides improved performance when used in Asphalt and Concrete, due to it having a low flakiness index as well as being frost resistant. It is also the best aggregate for use in high- strength concrete.

The material is drilled and then blasted from the mountain, transported to the crusher by dump truck and then crushed and screened to give the individual size fractions.

Natural & Manufactured Sands

Sand, in the terminology of aggregates is a “fine aggregate”. Within this fine aggregate scale there are 2 classifications, Natural Sand & Manufactured Sand.

  • Natural sand

Natural sand, as indicated by its name, is a naturally occurring material and is the result of disintegration and abrasion of rock over a period of time.  Natural Sand consists of round, smooth particles that contribute to workability making them ideal for use in mortars and concrete products. 

  • Manufactured Sand

Manufactured sand consists of the finer particles of rock that are produced in the processes of rock and gravel crushing. Manufactured sand consists of sharp, angular particles which yield greater structural strength due to their interlocking properties and make them ideal for Asphalt & high strength concrete applications.
