Brickies Sand

The sand of choice for bricklayers

The base component for brick mortar mix or jointing cement, Brickies Sand is mixed with other materials such as cement, lime and water to achieve the desired mix (please consult a bricklayer for mix ratios) As a naturally occurring product, Brickies Sand varies in colour between quarries in Perth and is typically a slightly lighter colour from North of the River quarries. This sand can also be used as paving sand and compacts well due to a higher clay and fine silt content than Plastering Sand. However it can be more difficult to screed (level off) due to the increased clay content in the sand forming a crust on the surface.
