How to Purchase

Provide us with the grain sizes that you are looking for. Please include:

  1. the largest and smallest ASTM E11 Sieve Sizes (16-30,
    20-40)
  2. the average E11 Sieve Number (#40)
  3. the millimeter size range (0.30 - 0.85mm inclusive)
  4. The reference to the ASTM Standard

Example Uses

  • Filler sands with controlled grain size distributions for epoxy, flooring, cement and asphalt
  • ASTM C144, C404, C897 mortar sands
  • Pipe and foundry sands
  • Reactor and geothermal sands
  • Can batch blend to match virtually any particle size distribution
