Con Sand Description

Con Sand, commonly known as Concrete Sand or Sharp Sand, is a type of coarse sand characterized by its angular granules. This angularity, paired with its coarseness, makes it ideal for binding, granting it a prime role in concrete mixing and masonry work. Beyond construction, its durability and compactness make it a top choice for paver bases, sandboxes, volleyball courts, and even as a traction agent on snowy and icy roads. Typically found in a uniform light beige or gray shade, Con Sand can have slight color variations based on its source. Its widespread utility ensures its availability throughout the year. While it’s hard-wearing by nature, areas of high traffic or play may need occasional maintenance to preserve its quality and appearance.
