CLS27 Coarse Yellow Sand in a 25kg bag
This is a very warm orange Dolomitic (Mg rich Limestone) sand with well rounded, med sphericity, grains. It also has a relatively small amount of active fines and therefore makes a very good sand for pointing and rendering with lime products. Its colouring gives mortars a pleasant mellow yellow type appearance.
