Granite (gneiss) is the principal mineral mined from our operation. The stone mined from our facility comes from one of the hardest deposits of granite on the East Coast. Our ballast, asphalt and concrete stone are all washed to assure quality. Here are some of the more popular sizes with descriptions and uses. 10

ABOUT OUR PRODUCTS
 
Maryland Materials' products are approved for use in Maryland, Delaware, Pennsylvania and New Jersey. The Company uses a state-of-the-art testing system to ensure our products are of the highest quality.

All of our aggregates meet AASHTO specifications and our subbase and rip rap products conform to state agency Subbase specifications and Rip Rap specifications.

Our deposit is a very hard, blue-gray granite and has advantageous chemical properties. The subbase products have excellent compaction properties. The coarse aggregates have specific properties advantageous to high strength concrete and Superpave chemical properties and Hot Mix Asphalt. Our railroad ballast properties make our ballast the choice of many local railroad companies.

 
GLOSSARY
 

Aggregate: The collective term for the mineral materials such as sand, gravel and crushed stone that are used with a binder to form compound materials. By volume, aggregate generally accounts for 92 to 96 percent of HMA and about 70 to 80 percent of cement concrete. Aggregate is also used for base and subbase courses for both flexible and rigid pavements. Aggregates can either be natural or manufactured. Natural aggregates are generally extracted from larger rock formations through an open excavation (quarry). Extracted rock is typically reduced to usable sizes by mechanical crushing.

AASHTO: American Assn of State Highways & Transportation Officials.

Gneiss: A coarse-grained metamorphic rock consisting of light-colored layers alternating with dark-colored layers of other minerals. Individual grains are often visible between layers.

Hot Mix Asphalt: This is the final product produced at an HMA facility which is a mixture of asphalt cement and aggregates.

Rip-Rap: A loose assemblage of large stones erected in water or on soft ground as a foundation.

Subbase: Often the main load-bearing layer of the pavement. Its role is to spread the load evenly over the subgrade. The quality of subbase is very important for the useful life of a road.

 
 

It is estimated that over 31,500,000 metric tons of crushed stone was sold in the state of Maryland in 2007. Those numbers are down in 2008, but will increase significantly as the economy begins to improve.

Hints:
To convert cubic yards to tons, simply multiply the cubic yards by 1.5.

To convert metric tons to tons, multiply the metric tons by 1.1023.
