Concrete Sand XM
Concrete Sand XM is a medium aggregate for the production of concrete as supplied to Ready Mix Concrete and other volume users. It is available subject to quantity and notice. Heavy duty floor finishes require an XM or XC sand. Our concrete sands comply with the gradings set out in BS 882.
Each of our concrete sands is intended to produce a concrete of predictably high strength and durability, with a uniform appearance. The BS 882 grading specification is designed to produce such a concrete, and also to prevent segregation (honeycombing); plastic shrinkage; cracking and blistering.
Where builders intend to mix their own concrete, the BS aggregate gradings control the cement demand, by limiting the surface area of grains to be coated in cement. Nominal concrete mixes (1:2:4; 1:3:6; etc) can then be prepared with confidence that they will achieve the desired results.
