2RC is a dirty granular material with coarse stone pieces and fine sediments. These coarse and fine components together create a material that compacts well. 2RC stone is a good road base used by the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT).
2RC is a well-graded aggregate that may be coated with earthen fines such as clay, silt, dirt and loam, as well as stone dust. It has no structural coefficient and does not drain. The pieces have an angular shape from the crushing process. Its best quality is that it is highly compactable, which allows the stones to interlock for strength.
You can use 2RC as a road base and fill material. Our 2RC stone, like all of our other aggregate options, is mined limestone, a durable and reliable rock for many applications.
2RC has a top size of 1.5 inches, though it may range from 0.75 to 2 inches. The mixture also contains sediments that help give 2RC its compacting capabilities.
Because of the varying sizes, it may be challenging to determine how much 2RC you need for your project. Our product and material calculator will give you an accurate estimate based on the measurements you enter. It will save you time and money, make you confident in your order and increase your efficiency.
Fill and backfill areas that need stability and compaction often require 2RC stone. You can also use it as a base for roads, pavers and slabs and bedding for pipes. In some cases, you may use 2RC on the surface. For these purposes, PennDOT commonly uses 2RC stone to build and repair highways and other state roads.
For residential applications, you may use it as a top dress driveway or a base for patios and walkways. For all uses, you must place it at a depth of 4 inches or greater.
