White Brickie Sand is a ‘fatty’ sand most commonly used for brick and block work. ‘Fatty’ sand refers to the high clay content in the sand, which repels water (like fat) allowing the sand to become stickier and more workable when mixed with cement. The standard ratio for White Brickie Sand mortar is 6 parts sand to 1 part cement.
White Brickie Sand provides a cleaner and brighter looking finish to bricklayers mortar than Yellow Brickie Sand does. To take full advantage of this clean finish, it is recommended that White Brickie Sand is mixed with Blue Circle Off White Cement. This will give your mortar the optimal finish.
White Brickie Sand is available in 30kg bags and by the tonne.
