Asphalt Sand

A key product for the construction industry, our Asphalt Sand is used in major roadworks and infrastructure projects across Melbourne.

Asphalt Sand has a wide range of uses but as the name suggests is primarily used in asphalt production. Sourced at our Nyora quarry it is well suited for local conditions and used extensively in road construction projects across Melbourne.

A typical benefit of good quality asphalt sand is that it enhances the skid resistance of the road surface. It is also quite porous with good drainage and compacts well making it ideal for use as a base for paving stones and slab work.

For large scale projects MQG can custom blend asphalt sand to your specific requirements. Please contact us for more information.
