What are the differences between “type 1” and “6F1” materials?

Recycled aggregates have long been used within the construction industry here in the UK- with Mone Bros being one of the leading suppliers of such aggregates in the North of England. These aggregates are much more efficient and beneficial to the environment, but they can often be confused due to their complex nature and many different types.

So what is the different between ‘type 1’ and ‘6F1’ materials?

Type 1 recycled aggregates – in which Mone Bros specialise in – are built up of 40mm to dust which contains both concrete and tarmac. These aggregates are ideal for finishing and generally used for road or path construction.

At Mone Bros, our type 1 aggregates are of a high quality and are known within the industry of being very versatile recycled sub-base materials. In 2009, we became the first organization in the Yorkshire region to produce a recycled type 1 aggregate with YHAUC approval, making us one of the most experienced and reputable companies specialising in recycled aggregates.

Meanwhile, type 6F1 recycled aggregates are finer capping layers used in the same applications as other aggregates, but with a finer grading. They generally require 50mm to dust and are evenly graded.

Both of these recycled aggregates are beneficial to construction companies in many ways:

  • They are cost effective
  • They are eco-friendly
  • They offer great versatility and can be used for a range of applications, landscaping projects and home improvement endeavours
