Type 8 Sub Base
Type 8 sub base is a versatile and durable material that can be used to create a solid foundation for surfaces that need to support the weight of vehicles. Processed to a consistent size of 1 and 1/2 inch or smaller, this sub base is an ideal choice for constructing load-bearing structures.
The unique blend of rock, gravel, and clay in type 8 sub base ensures a high level of compaction and strength. The carefully selected materials work together to provide stability and prevent the surface from shifting or deforming under pressure. This makes it an ideal choice for projects that require a sturdy and long-lasting substructure.
Size and Grading
This gravel product is carefully processed to ensure a consistent particle size, with no piece exceeding 1 and 1/2 inches. This smaller size allows for better compaction and a more stable foundation compared to the larger type 32-33 road base. The optimal size of this product contributes to its excellent performance in a variety of construction applications.
Uses of Type 8 Sub Base
As a load-bearing material, it is primarily used in the construction of roads, driveways, and gravel parking lots. Due to its impressive compaction and stability, this sub base provides a reliable foundation that helps to minimize maintenance and extend the lifespan of the surface. Although it is not necessary for surfaces that will only experience foot traffic, this material is a vital component in projects where the weight and pressure of vehicles will be a factor.
