What is Manufactured Sand?
Manufactured sand is crushed fine aggregate produced from a source material and designed for use in concrete or for other specific products. Production generally involves crushing, screening and possibly washing.
Why Manufactured Sand?
M-sand or Manufactured sand is the best option when considering price and availability. As the natural sand is not replenished at the rate it is being used, the government has begun to promote manufactured sand.
An Eco-Friendly Decision
Natural sand that comes with all its silt, impurity and the environmental threat, or cleaner, purified, made-to-order M-sand that help construct cities and reconstruct the earth? We feel proud to supply an eco-friendly alternative sand to save earth.
- B-Sand is produced by feeding inert igneous rocks of varying size to primary and secondary crushers (Jaw and Cone), for size reduction.
- These crushed stones are further crushed and shaped by particle to particle impact by using V.S.I( Vertical Shaft Impactor)
- Its cubular grain shape and purity makes it superior for masonry.

- It has better workability,
- It is also higher in compressive strength in comparison to river sand
- It has higher water retentivity
- 0% wastage as there is no over sized material present.
- Ready to use as it does not need to be sieved before use ultimately saving time and labor cost.

- Compressive strength of mortar with M-sand is higher than that of the mortar with river sand for mortar flow in the range of 85 – 100%.
- Mortars with M-sand show better workability
- Compressive strength of concrete with sand is higher when compared to the concrete with river sand.
- Pull out bond test indicates marginally higher bond strength for M-sand concrete when compared with the bond strength of river sand concrete.

Well, we all know about the complications related to sand mining, don’t we? Excessive erosion of sand-beds, flooding, illegal mafia drifts are all associated with this singular factor. But while on one hand Indian states claim to curb it, the impositions laid by bodies such as BIS or the Bureau of Indian Standards is making[…]
With the ban that has been imposed on the usage of river sand, repeatedly new options which prove perfect as its alternative come into the picture. One such option is the manufactured sand. Although this is the most reliable replacement in most parts of the world, but due to the lack of awareness people in[…]
When it comes to construction, it can be seen that the amount of concrete that is consumed is quite huge and the sand plays an important role in determining the durability of this concrete. Concrete is basically a mixture that is commonly made up of sand, cement and water. There are various other things as[…]
In spite of all the awareness campaigns and legal declarations being made, there is a large group of people still unaware about not using the river sand and considering the option of manufactured sand instead as its replacement. Since the ban has already been put on river sand and its usage for commercial as well[…]
