MOT Type 1 aggregate is a well-graded granular material that conforms to the specifications set by the Ministry of Transport. It is composed of crushed rock, gravel, or a combination of these materials. The particle sizes are carefully controlled to meet specific grading requirements, ensuring optimal performance as a sub-base material.
- Particle Size: MOT Type 1 aggregate is characterized by a well-graded particle size distribution, with a range of particle sizes from fine dust to larger stones.
- Durability: The material is durable and resistant to wear, providing a stable foundation for construction projects.
- Compaction Properties: MOT Type 1 aggregate is designed to compact well, allowing for the creation of a firm and stable sub-base for roads, driveways, and other construction applications.
- Drainage: The material typically has good drainage properties, preventing water accumulation and enhancing the longevity of the construction.
- Compliance: MOT Type 1 aggregate adheres to the specifications outlined by the Department of Transport, ensuring it meets the required standards for use in construction projects.
