Our Process Sand is used in a range of industrial and manufacturing processes.

Cement testing

Our 18/25 sand is extremely tightly graded, has a silica content of over 99% and conforms to British Standard ‘BS4550 Part 6 1978: Standard Sand for Mortar Cubes’. The standard specifies that the silica sand should be white and sourced from Leighton Buzzard. This precisely graded sand is exported all over the world.

Specialist dried sands are used as a heat transfer agent in fluidised bed boilers to achieve a constant temperature. The sands are supplied across a range of industries from food manufacture to paper processing.

We also produce a range of sands that are used in the manufacture of filler, flooring and adhesive products.
