  • Consistent Supply: M-Sand can be produced in areas closer to construction sites, bringing down the cost of transportation and providing an assurance of consistent supply.

  • Lesser impurities and good working properties’ Msand and is free of silt and clay particles, and has denser particle packing than natural sand.

  • Excellent Strength: Compared to river sand, M-Sand has higher compressive strength, higher flexural strength, better damage resistance, better water retentivity, higher unit weight, and lower permeability as well.

  • Better work-ability: The cubical shape with a rounded edge and superior gradation of M-Sand gives good plasticity to mortar, providing excellent workability.

  • Eco-friendly alternative: Usage of M-Sand prevents dredging of river beds to get river sand which may lead to environmental disasters like groundwater depletion, water scarcity, a threat to the safety of bridges, dams, etc. M-Sands is an Eco-friendly alternative to river sand.

  • Economy: Since the usage of M-Sand has increased durability, workability, higher strength, decreased post- concrete defects, reduction in segregation, and permeability, it proves to be economical as a construction material replacing river sand.

  • Moisture Content: Moisture is available only in water-washed M-Sand. Whereas, river sand has moisture that is trapped in between the particles which are good for concrete purposes.

  • Adulteration: River sand is mostly adultered due to its high demand. Msand is easily available.
