AASHTO #10



AASHTO #10 is a grade of crushed stone dust valued for its cleanliness and resistance to compaction. The small top size of AASHTO #10 means that it will drain, but it does so slowly.

What Is #10 Crushed Stone?

 

Crushed stone is a construction aggregate. At a glance, it looks similar to gravel. However, gravel is rounded and eroded naturally over time, while crushed stone is mined and then crushed into specific sizes to suit a variety of practical applications.

 

Because crushed stone can be made from nearly any type of hard stone, it is a highly sustainable resource. The most common types of rock used are limestone, argillite, washed gravel, granite, traprock and quartzite. Union Quarries uses limestone to produce AASHTO #10 and other grades of crushed stone, as this material is abundant in Pennsylvania.

 

A wide range of crushed stone varieties is used in various landscaping and construction projects, from concrete block production to decorative use along residential walkways and gardens.

 

Grades of crushed stone are categorized by the size of the fragments after the stone has been crushed. AASHTO #10 aggregate is on the lower end of the scale, as it is ground very finely to create dust.

AASHTO #10 Stone Size

 

AASHTO #10 has a 3/8-inch top size that ranges down to a silt-sized material. Its reduced size makes it much easier to handle compared to bulkier grades of AASHTO stone.
