Sharp Sand Bulk Bag
Sharp sand, also known as grit sand, coarse sand or concreting sand, is a coarse-grained sand with a gritty texture. Sharp Sand is composed of grains of rock, the size ranging from 0.06mm to 2.0mm. These particles are mostly quartz, although there are other minerals such as clays and irons mixed in. In contrast to Building Sand which is a fine, uniform sand. Grit sand is a rough, graded sand with a higher percentage of larger grain sizes. This makes it more commonly used in gardens as it's coarse open structure allows moisture movement from area to area.
Sharp sand is a popular choice for making concrete because it provides good strength and durability. It is also used for a variety of other purposes, such as laying paving stones, mixing mortar, and improving drainage in gardens.
Key properties of concreting sand:
Sharp sand has a coarse grain size, which means that the individual grains are relatively large. This gives the sand a gritty texture and makes it ideal for applications where strength and durability are important.
Low clay and silt content
Grit sand has a low clay and silt content, which means that it is free-draining and will not easily compact. This makes it a good choice for applications where drainage is important.
The individual grains of this coarse sand have sharp edges, which helps to improve the bond between the sand and other materials, such as cement. This makes sharp sand a good choice for applications where strength is important.
