What is Brickies Sand and Where is It Used?

Due to its relative cleanliness, lightweight, and versatility, brickies sand is the sand of choice for construction projects. Known as fatty sand, it’s commonly used for brick and block construction.

Due to its high clay content, it repels water and, when mixed with cement, becomes stickier, making it ideal for bricklaying and block building. About 70 per cent of the mortar mix is sand; the remaining 30 per cent is cement, lime, and water and you can get premium brickies sand from the Premium Allsands Wattleup sand supplies depot.
