Roundtower have always recognised the importance of the role of sand in a lime mortar or render, and whether building, pointing, rendering, matching historic mortars or achieving a certain finish, the suitability of the mortar ultimately depends on the suitability of the sand used.
A good sand for lime render should be a washed sharp sand with angular grains of good particle distribution with a very low level of silt to ensure good bonding qualities.
Wexford Sands have met the OPW and County Council specifications for the last 15 years.
The following grades of sand are available loose, in 20kg bags and 1 ton bags;
1mm Wexford Sand
