Sand is a loose, fragmented, naturally-occurring material consisting of very small particles of decomposed rocks, corals, or shells. Sand is used to provide bulk, strength, and other properties to construction materials like asphalt and concrete. It is also used as a decorative material in landscaping. Specific types of sand are used in the manufacture of glass and as a molding material for metal casting. Other sand is used as an abrasive in sandblasting and to make sandpaper.Get A Quote
In the United States, sand was used to produce glass as early as 1607 with the founding of the short-lived Jamestown colony in Virginia. The first sustained glass-making venture was formed in 1739 in Wistarburgh, New Jersey, by Caspar Wistar. The production of sand for construction purposes grew significantly with the push for paved roads during World War I and through the 1920s. The housing boom of the late 1940s and early 1950s, coupled with the increased use of concrete for building construction, provided another boost in production.
Today, the processing of sand is a multi-billion dollar business with operations ranging from very small plants supplying sand and gravel to a few local building contractors to very large, highly automated plants supplying hundreds of truckloads of sand per day to a wide variety of customers over a large area.
Molding sands, or foundry sands, are used for metal casting. They are composed of about 80-92 silica, up to 15 alumina, and 2 iron oxide. The alumina content gives the molding sand the proper binding properties required to hold the shape of the mold cavity.
Sand that is scooped up from the bank of a river and is not washed or sorted in any way is known as bank-run sand. It is used in general construction and landscaping.

Despite appearances, we are running out of sand. While that might seem farfetched sandis seemingly everywhere there is not only a thriving international trade in the commodity, but its the second-most heavily exploited natural resource after water and, by volume, the most heavily extracted solid material in the world.
Like any commodity, sand requires uniformity. Uniform sand, or 34aggregate,34 includes gravel, crushed stone and a number of recycled materials, such as crushed concrete, each of which has unique applications. Specialty sands also exist for industries such as golf, volleyball, sports fields, and playgrounds, as well as retail and technical services. Each has unique shape, sie, hardness and color specifications.
Sand is formed by erosive processes over thousands of years and, according to a UN Environmental Program UNEP report, is being extracted far more quickly than it can be renewed. While theU.S. imports only about 1 of the totalsand that it uses, according to the United States Geological Survey, developing countries like China and India have had to import significantly larger quantities to meet the demand created by recent construction booms. Sand39s scarcity translates to price appreciation, which makes investing in sand compelling.

Jan 05, 2020nbsp018332Polymeric sand is nothing but your regular sand with polymer additives and fine silica and quart. The non-sand particles of the products act as binding agents when they are exposed to water. In fact, moisture activates them and they, in turn, strongly bind the sand particles together when applied in between the pavers.
