UG-Mat Foundry Sand Recycled Materials Resource Center

Foundry Sand - Asphalt Concrete INTRODUCTION In the United States, asphalt concrete is used to cover over 2 million miles of roadway, accounting for over 94 percent of all pavements.(1) Foundry sand has been used successfully as a partial replacement for the fine aggregate in hot mix asphalt pavements (HMA).(1;2;3;4) Some general material characteristics must be met when using foundry sand in ...

Asphalt American Foundry Society

Standard asphalt design mixes can be used to design HMA containing foundry sand. Foundry sand is generally finer than conventional bank run sands and may have a higher fines content. The fines content will generally be the limiting characteristic as to what percentage of the fine aggregate can be replaced with foundry sand.
