Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lovely bag of sand This was a good purchase. I needed a bag of sand and this was the perfect choice. In a nice plastic bag and all lovely and soft as described. What more could an avid DIYer want!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Building sand A clean, well-graded sand that mixes well for mortar and concrete. Much better than the powdery red sand you sometimes get, from Old Red Sandstone deposits, which is too fine and stains things red. A decent amount in a bag; I weighed some at 20kg, which probably included about 1kg of water as it was damp. Very happy with it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from mortars this product is easy to use when mixed with master Crete. Being a retired mortar specialist for 20 years, this sand is really an asphalt sand and requires an addition of coarser sand to comply with mortar strength tests. It is ideal for small jobs around the garden etc., but for concrete block work it does require the addition of coarser sand. For the lay person who really doesn't know about mortars is that mastercrete is a 30n cement which contains a 5% air entrainer for workability. Ordinary O P grey cement is a 40n cement and this mix would require the addition of a plasticiser to hold in the water in the mix and give workability , the mix ratio of the same amount of each of the cements etc., a 1 to 5 mix , the 2 mixes would have different strengths. You can however make both mixes achieve the same strengths by using a 1 to 5 mastercrete and building sand or a 1 to 6 mix o p cement and building sand with the recommended addition of a plasticiser. Both mixes stated cannot go over the stipulated maximum content of 18% air or the mortars would crumble if used for dense blocks or would spawn off a wall that was rendered or harled. You see ladies and gentlemen their is more to mortars than meets the eye. By the way I used to be

Rated 5 out of 5 by from well packed I bought this product to finish some brickwork as only had a small amount of bricks to lay and did not want to order a large building bag

Rated 5 out of 5 by from it's sand it's sand, not much else one can say be careful if comparing prices as no weight is given for the contents and the trend nowadays is to reduce the contents rather than increase the price. I doubt it is still the old 25kg bag one used to get, just the same as the bulk bag is no where near the 1 tonne it used to be
