FINE SAND

Fine sand is, as the name suggests, sand that is produced to a finer grain than other sands. Because of the size of its grain, it makes it more easy to mix for mortar. The smoothness of the grain, allows for a ‘creamier’ texture than other sand. So it’s well-suited to binding bricks or blocks together and filling gaps in brickwork. Because of these qualities also makes a perfect plaster and rendering sand selection. Fine sand is another name for building sand.
