Quarried Sands & Ballast
Sand is a naturally occurring granular material composed of finely divided rock and mineral particles. There are a vast number of sands available on the market with each type of sand possessing particular qualities making them more or less suitable for a particular task.
Sand is used as a raw material in many industries such as construction, manufacturing, electronics and horticulture to name a few. Mainland Aggregates provide sands predominantly used by the construction industry such as sharp sand and building sand. Sharp sand is primarily used as a bedding material for paving whereas building sand is more suited to the preparation of bricklaying mortars, renders and screeds.
These sands are standard building sands and are not suited to more specialist applications such as children’s sand pits or equestrian riding arenas. If you require more specialised sands such as silica sand please click here
