One of the most environmentally friendly quarry products produced in Australia.

The  unique properties of our light weight scoria sand, aggregates and fines products means that our products are simply better value and better for the environment

 Scoria's unique properties:

Light weight -
Aerolite products offer value in most construction applications, both in the efficiency of the products themselves and in helping to reduce transport and handling costs.

Aerolite
aggregate and fines products are half the weight and hence give twice the yield of equivalent aggregate and fines products with no sacrifice in quality or durability.

Aerolite scoria has been aerated by nature which gives our products have many benefits over conventional aggregates. These include high moisture retention, high surface area and light weight:
Water retention
: Aerolite scoria naturally absorbs and holds water and can be used to naturally drought proof gardens when used as a mulch or as a soil additive,  is also an ideal growing medium for use in soils, hydroponics mixes, growing and potting mixes.
Noise and Thermal Insulation: Due to aerated structure Aerolite scoria is far superior than normal dense sands and aggregates in providing both thermal and noise insulation
Refractory Properties: Due to its structure and chemical composition it is an ideal material to improve the fire resistant properties of concrete or masonry products.

Strong and Durable: Unlike some other scoria products, Aerolite's products do not break down or powder over time but are as strong and durable as any other dense weight sand or aggregate product.
