Sand

Sand is perhaps the most used, most ubiquitous inorganic material in the world. Sand is literally everywhere in the modern human world from our buildings (concrete) to our roads (asphalt) to our pastimes (golf courses, beaches, ball fields) to our children’s sandboxes. We are seldom out of sight from sand even when we look right through it (glass) and while it is a relatively simple material, modern sand production is exacting and complex.

We produce a variety of natural and manufactured sand products for building materials and leisure activities from 3 locations.

CONCRETE SAND

TORPEDO SAND OR MOUND SAND

Concrete Sand or Torpedo Sand is a very clean, washed gravel sand graded from #200 mesh to 3/16″, designed to meet the WI DOT spec for Fine Concrete Aggregates and the ASTM C33 concrete spec.

We stock Washed Concrete Sand at our Lisbon Pit/Quarry.

MASON SAND

LIME SAND

3/16″ Manufactured Sand is a coarsely graded, very clean crushed limestone sand. At both our Jackson Quarry and Sussex Quarry, we wash this sand specifically to minimize p200 material.

We stock 3/16″ Manufactured Sand at our Jackson and Sussex Quarry.

Lisbon ULTRA-FINE SAND

ULTRA-FINE WASHED SAND

Ultra-fine Washed Sand is a washed, well-graded natural sand from #600 mesh (20 μm) to #100 mesh (150 μm). Better packing than coarser sands, but still permeable, Ultra-Fine Washed Sand is less abrasive making it an ideal solution for:

  • Underneath pond or landfill liners
  • Backfilling sensitive utilities
  • Mixing with soils or composts
  • Raising the grade of a non-load-bearing surface
  • Cattle Bedding

We stock Ultra-fine Washed Sand at our Jackson Quarry and our Lisbon Pit/Quarry.

BEDDING SAND

BEDDING SAND

Screened Sand is an unwashed natural sand less than 1/2″ in size. Screened sand is ideal for applications where better workability and some permeability is required.

We stock Screened Sand at our Richfield Pit and Lisbon Pit/Quarry.it.

GOLF COURSE SAND

GOLF COURSE SAND

Golf Course Sand is a very clean, washed sand conforming to USGA specifications for bunker sand.

We stock Golf Course Sand at our Lisbon Pit/Quarry.
