What is Plasterer Sand?
Posses Fine Particles
Plasterers Sand is known for its fine texture and excellent finish. It has extremely fine particles compared to other sand types.
Plasterers Sand should not have a Fineness Modulus of more than 1.5, and white slits are preferred not more than 4 percent.
Sharp, Angular and Fine
Plasterer Sand is the best for setting mortars and concrete on the construction site, which has sharp, angular, and fine particles.
Where Can Plastering Sand Be Used?
Creation of Plaster
Plaster combines gypsum, plastering sand, cement, and water. The use of Plastering Sand does the wall plaster and brickwork.

Why Use Plastering Sand?
Plastering Sand is ideal for plastering and rendering because of its extremely fine texture. Sand for plastering is typically 0 to 2 mm, with ultra-refined particles.
Enhanced Strength of Structures
With the use of Plastering Sand, the consistency of the building structure is enhanced, the strength is increased, and mixing and placing the concrete is made simpler.
Plastering Sand does not contain any impurities or other contaminants, making it more lightweight than different sand types. This also decreases the transportation cost of Plastering Sand.
