Aggregates for Railroad – due to its strength, Hyperit makes a stable base for railroad construction.

Mason purposes - due to its dark grey/black colour Hyperit is well suited for architectural purposes like the building of quays and walls.

Courtyards – Hyperit is well graded in all sizes combined with an attractive dark grey colour making it suited for use in yards and drives.
