MOT Type 1 Hardcore
MOT Type 1 Hardcore, MOT standing for Ministry of Transport, is an aggregate of solid materials, not easily degraded, and of low absorbency. MOT Type 1 Hardcore is used for both commercial and domestic uses of application such as bulk fill, leveling material, and a sub base for paving and paths, driveways, ponds, sheds, patios, to various construction work like constructing heavy load-bearing stone, concrete floors, and driveways. MOT Hardcore is made up of large aggregates, typically limestone but also consists of materials like construction waste, quarry waste, gravel, and crushed rock.
An example of hardcore is MOT type 1, like all hardcore it should be essentially hard, but then must be compressed before upper layers are added, as large gaps will undermine its supportive quality. The downside to MOT Type 1 hardcore is that it is not a permeable sub-base material meaning little to no water will pass through but can filter at a very slow rate.
Our MOT Type 1 hardcore is sold in two sizes of bag. The first being MOT Type 1 Bulk Bag (minimum fill 800KG) and the second being MOT Type 1 Poly Bag (25KG). Whilst our type 1 hardcore is our most popular product, we also stock dolomite, scalpings, and down crusher run. For other construction projects, we also provide other types of aggregates and gravel, such as ballast and slate chippings.
MOT Type 1 Hardcore can be essential to the structural integrity of a project, therefore it is very important to choose the correct one.
