Summary

The definition of the term “building raw material”. Natural stone and its classification. Raw materials for the production of artificial aggregate. Raw materials for the production of mortar materials and binders (lime, cement, plaster). Technical properties of building materials. Major building raw materials (intrusive rocks, vein igneous rocks, extrusive rocks, sedimentary rocks, metamorphites). An overview of the Czech base of building raw materials and their position in the Czech mineral resources. A brief overview of European building raw materials. The importance of building raw materials for the balance of payment of the Czech foreign trade.
