The Suitability Of Limestone Aggregates For Use In Structural Concrete. The following is an excerpt of a presentation made by Mr. Gordon Hutchinson at a seminar hosted by John's Hall Aggregates Limited entitled "The future of Construction Aggregates" held on June 13, 2012 at the Lecture Theatre, Montego-Bay Community College.
limestone, as sometimes this was crushed and used in the aggregate; thus the aggregate may also dissolve. The mortar's suitability for the stones or bricks and the location should also be considered.

Limestone aggregate is commonly selected for this purpose. Flux Stone – When crushed, lime can be used for smelting and other metal refining processes. The heat of smelting causes the aggregate to combine with impurities and may be removed from the process as a slag.
Limestone is a basic ingredient of the building industry use as aggregate in Concrete and Concrete Block, also used to make Cement and Lime. Because of its Angular shape Crushed Lime Rock is also perfect Road Construction, used as Rip Rap, Railroad Ballast, Filter Stone, French Drains, and Asphalt.
