Sand and Jelly
The construction industry uses a variety of building materials for different aspects of a structure. Some of the most common construction materials are Sand, Jelly, Cement, wood, steel and so on. Each has a different strength and durability, which makes it right for various uses. The selection criteria such as cost-effectiveness and quality play a significant role. With this approach, construction companies can also avoid mistakes.
What is sand?
Sand is one of the primary materials used in the construction of any building. It is a granular material composed of finely divided rock and mineral particles. Sand has various combinations. But defined by their grain size, sand grains are smaller than gravel and coarser than silt. Sand is an important material for construction because it provides bulk, strength and other properties to the concrete. It is one of the most important construction materials for a structure. Since sand can be easily compressed, it is widely used for wall reinforcements and certain types of grounding or flooring. However, sand should be mixed with other materials in the correct amount, when it comes to (RMC) SD Conmix is the best option with a perfect and quality ready mix concrete.
When we are talking about sand there are a few types of sand that are required to make a building rock solid
River sand: This kind of sand is usually found on the banks of rivers or streams. The quality of this sand is perfect, and it comes in the colour grey and white, which is used for concrete purposes. The texture of this sand is grainy and smooth.
Concrete sand: It is a specific type of sand used as an aggregate in the concrete mixture, since the mixture of the concrete is coarse, it bonds with the materials to create a block of strong concrete.
Fill sand: as the name indicates this type of sand is used for filling, it is a combination of sand grains and aggregates and is primarily used for laying concrete.
Pit sand: this is best used for its superior binding property. It is coarse sand that is obtained naturally from the deep pits.
Fine sand: it is the most popular sand used in plastering walls that offer a top-notch finish to each corner of the building.
Manufactured Sand: Technological marvel wherein sand is manufactured unlike regular types of sand. It is done by crushing hard granite stones, artificially created as an alternative to river sand for construction.
Popularly known as m-sand, its usage also prevents escavations of river beds to get river sand. This can contribute in avoiding disasters like groundwater depletion, water scarcity, threat to bridge safety thus making it a more eco-friendly alternative to other sands.
Another important material used for construction purpose is jelly or (crushed stones) it is the filler in the concrete and act as one of the load bearers. They are also used in the production of concrete products. The selection of good quality coarse aggregates is essential for the production of concrete that meets the desired strength and durability requirements. SD Conmix has the best quality construction materials that are required for that perfect ready mix concrete. They choose the best jelly with a good surface texture, particular shape and clean crushed stones for the (RMC). Crushed stones are also used in the construction of pavements which are designed both for rural and urban roads. These crushed stones give a stable foundation for the construction of the highway.
