This standard PD 6682-1:2009+A1:2013 Aggregates is classified in these ICS categories:
- 91.100.30 Concrete and concrete products
- 91.100.15 Mineral materials and products
This part of PD 6682 gives recommendations and guidance on the use in the UK of BS EN 12620:2002+A1, which specifies the properties of aggregates and filler aggregates obtained by processing natural, manufactured or recycled materials and mixtures of these aggregates for use in concrete. BS EN 12620:2002+A1 covers aggregates having an oven-dried particle density greater than 2.00 Mg/m3 (2000 kg/m3) for all concrete, including concrete conforming to BS EN 206-1:2000+A3 in roads and other pavements and for use in precast concrete products.
It also covers recycled aggregate with densities between 1.50 Mg/m3 (1 500 kg/m3) and 2.00 Mg/m3 (2 000 kg/m3) with appropriate caveats and fine recycled aggregate (D = 4 mm or less) with appropriate caveats.
NOTE Lightweight aggregates for concrete are covered by BS EN 13055-1.
