Aggregate particles are considered as flaky when their thickness is less than 0.6 of their mean sieve size. Aggregate to be classified is separated into seven sieve fractions from 6.3 to 63 mm and each fraction is examined separately. The dimensions of each sieve comply with the relevant International Standard, manufactured from heavy gauge steel sheet and coated with electrostatic paint. The accuracy of the slot size is better than 0.1 mm.
