Construction aggregates are mineral materials used in the production of construction materials such as Portland cement concrete and hotmix asphalt, and as unbound base courses for pavements. In their primary role as filler in these materials, the volume of aggregates can take up 90 – 95% of asphalt and 70 – 80% of concrete mixtures.

 · Hardness, or resistance to wear, is an important property of concrete used in roads and floor surfaces subjected to heavy traffic. Hardness is expressed in terms of aggregate abrasion value of the bulk aggregate, determined using the Los Angeles test. More will be the abrasion value, less will be the aggregate hardness.
