Even if you’ve been living under a rock, you’ve likely encountered sand before. Sand is a naturally occurring mixture of fine rock material and mineral particles. Its composition differs depending on the source of the sand, but most forms are useful for roads, aggregate concrete manufacturing, and sanitation. C&E offers a range of sand products, including but not limited to plaster sand and Albuquerque sand. If you’re interested in hearing more about our sand products, please contact us for specific fine aggregate specifications.
