Crusher Dust

Crusher dust is a finely crushed granite product that compacts well to form a hard base. It  can be used as a cost-effective back filling and packing material around or under water tanks and slabs. It can also be blended with natural sands to improve concrete shrinkage and water demand or as a material to back-fill trenches with.

Crusher dust also contains minerals that are insoluble to water, which makes it an ideal material to stop mineral leaching in soils, to reduce water logging and to raise the pH levels of soil.
