All About Us..
Derbyshire Specialist Aggregates have been heavily involved in decorative aggregates since 1984, initially in pebbledashing chippings and landscape aggregates for paths and drives. This focus on specialist and coloured aggregates led on perfectly when the resin bonded and bound markets in the UK started needing clean, dry, hard, coloured aggregates of a high quality and consistency.
All Over the World
We source materials from all over the UK and World Wide to
give an unrivalled range of colours, sizes and shapes to suit all applications. Our secret is maintaining a high standards of product and service offering all materials from stock. This is enabled by keeping thousands of tonnes of raw material and finished products at our central processing plant in Derbyshire.
Initially materials are washed to remove surface dust and grit through one of our two tumble washers with some regrading done here, then the product is left to drain for a few days before going through one of the two rotary drying plants.
In the driers they are heated to dry the aggregates and in the process tumbled to ensure any grit or dust is liberated
from the stones prior to screening. The screening is vital to give a final clean up of the product where screening top and bottom ensures a consistent grading. The product is then cooled and bagged into polythene bags on pallets, shrinkwrapped, 40 x 25kg bags per pallet to stock ready for despatch on one of our four automated packing lines. Product runs of 100 to 300 tonnes ensures a consistent and reliable material output. Stock holding of 2000 to 3000 tonnes of finished product also means we have it in stock and can deliver to factory, yard or site in full loads or by pallet courier next day if required.
In addition to the resin bonded and bound aggregates we also supply the resin for bounding the aggregates, the rubber for resin bound play surfaces and colour coated quartz, granite or bauxite for flooring and road markings.
Whatever your needs large or small, we have been doing this for 30 years, so can help with any query or problem you might come across. Just give us a call!
If you require more specialised aggregates we stock coloured quartz pigmented sands. With sizes from 0.1mm - 6mm, and a wide range of colours and blends available. Our coloured quartz website demonstrates the striking effect of using pigmented quartz.
We are justifiably very proud of our operation and products at Youlgrave in Derbyshire, but dont just take our word for it. Anyone in the resin aggregate business is welcome to come and see for themselves the care we put into making these products, the range we do and to take away any samples needed.
