Concrete Sand C-33
Concrete Sand C-33 is a type of sand that meets the specifications of ASTM International, specifically the C-33 standard. This standard outlines the requirements for concrete aggregates, including sand, that are suitable for use in the production of concrete.
Concrete Sand C-33 is a washed, coarse-grained sand that is free of clay, silt, and organic matter. It has a specific gravity ranging from 2.5 to 2.7 and a bulk density of approximately 100 pounds per cubic foot. This type of sand is commonly used in the construction industry for various concrete applications, such as making concrete blocks, paving stones, and precast concrete products.
When using Concrete Sand C-33, it is important to ensure that the sand is clean, dry, and free of any contaminants that could affect the quality and strength of the concrete. It is also important to properly proportion the sand with other materials, such as cement and water, to ensure that the resulting concrete mixture has the desired consistency and strength.
