Recycled fine aggregate includes a large quantity of hydrated cement paste. The cement paste influences qualities of recycled fine aggregate, and, in turn, the properties of concrete containing recycled fine aggregate. As a result, concrete containing recycled fine aggregate has lower strength and durability than concrete with natural aggregate.
