Sharp sand, being general-purpose sand it is also used for lawn top dressing and internal floor screeds. It is normally used where more strength and less flexibility is required.
As the name implies the sharp (or coarse) sand contains less of the smaller particles than the soft sand. Therefore sharp sand should only be used for concreting jobs, while soft sand should only be used for render or mortar.
Features & benefits:
- Suitable for screeding and external rendering sand.
- Consistent colour and quality.
- Suitable for laying slab and block paving.
