FMT Synthetic Aggregate is cost effective alternative construction material that has many uses in commercial/industrial projects.
The material is a light weight, extremely high yield construction base alternative. FMT Synthetic Aggregate has a 1 ton to 1 yard yield vs traditional limestone. A typical 20 ton load of 610 Limestone yields only 15.38 yards.
Compaction of material is less complex than other fill material, takes a small to mid-size dozer to spread and a 54” to 84” smooth drum roller, no pad foot roller is needed this will save your company fuel and labor cost.
Trucking of material is simplified because the material is extremely flow able when dumping, there is less build up in the bed of the trailer, and this eliminates the additional labor from having to manually clean the material out on a daily basis.
FMTA can blend the Synthetic Aggregate Material to your specifications. We currently have a multitude of blends available at each of our yards. (Ask your sales rep for more information)
CBR of #57 Limestone at 25% and 75% Synthetic yields a CBR of 67 at a 99% compaction rate.
