Application and typical uses of the product

The pebbles are available in 3 sizes: small (10-20mm), medium (20-50mm) and large (50-90mm). There is also a panel powder (dust) available at under 10mm.
The smaller grade can be used as ‘pot toppers’, a decorative aggregate for indoor and outdoor plants. The medium and larger grades are used in garden decoration, edging, within driveways and in water features.
Larger grades can also be used within landscaping projects and in gabian baskets. All 3 grades can be crushed and incorporated within cement mixes, stone and bricks. The panel powder can be used as drain fill, epoxy resin and as a sharp sand alternative.
As Glasglo pebbles have a translucent quality, they shine when illuminated.
