River sand adds strength and sustainability to building structures.This whitish grey colour substance is often used for construction purposes like plastering. This material is important because it contains little chemical properties. It’s commonly used in the production of concrete and cement sand. Using river sand for the production of these products lowers the need for water content in the mix design. With lower silt and clay contents in river sand means that there is more control over the quality of the concrete and mortar produced. This means that the concrete and mortar are more workable and stronger than alternatives such as crushed rock fine.
